Will a DUI prevent me from getting a new job?


One question that DUI clients often ask is how a possible DUI conviction will affect their ability to get a new job?

There is no simple answer to the question but there are certainly ways to minimize the impact.  The attached link is to an article written by a headhunter who was posed with exactly this question.  http://www.pbs.org/newshour/making-sense/ask-headhunter-will-dui-background-cost-job/

Obviously, if you have been charged with a DUI or any criminal offense, you should consult with a criminal defense attorney to explore the facts of your case and any possible defenses to the allegations.  Thousand upon thousands of people have fought and died for your constitutional rights.  Don't just give them up.
