Forget the morality of it - as an attorney, I can explain to you the ugly consequences of drinking and driving. And the reality of it is that you really shouldn't do it. In the podcast, I explain why.

I've represented more than a few people who have been arrested for drinking and driving and the costs those clients have incurred went far beyond what they had to pay me. Most were shocked by how expensive it was - in money they paid out and the effect the conviction had on their lives.

Here, in Lehto's Law XXVII I outline all of the negative ways the drunk driving conviction will impact your life. And I briefly talk about why these charges are so difficult to fight these days.

I hate to preach but this topic really does boil down to one sentence: Don't Drink and Drive. And here's why.

This website may supply general information about the law but it is for informational purposes only. This does not create an attorney-client relationship and is not meant to constitute legal advice, so the good news is we're not billing you by the hour for reading this. The bad news is that you shouldn't act upon any of the information without consulting a qualified professional attorney who will, probably, bill you by the hour.
