ALABAMA DUI LAWYER TO FIGHT FOR YOU
Most DUI arrests begin with a traffic stop after a few drinks after work, or maybe after a night on the town with friends. The officer’s investigation begins by asking you simple basic questions at your car window. Have you been drinking tonight? How many drinks did you have? Your answers may often lead to a field sobriety tests and a field breath test.
The next thing you know, you are being taken downtown to the drunk tank. One thing is clear from this point going forward. You need a criminal defense lawyer! Do not wait until your court date to hire an attorney. Ask for a lawyer!

The Consequences of a DUI/DWI Conviction in Alabama
Will I go to jail? Will I lose my license? Will I lose my job? These are some of the most frequent questions people ask when they have been arrested for drunk driving and call Ingram Law LLC.
Jail time depends on many factors, including your blood alcohol levels, whether or not you have had prior DUI convictions, and whether or not anyone was injured. The consequences of a DUI/DWI conviction can be serious:
- Jail time/incarceration
- Administrative license suspension or revocation
- Installation of an ignition interlock device
- Impoundment of your car or truck
- Mandatory alcohol assessment/treatment
- Increased insurance rates/cancelled insurance
Will I lose my license? Under Alabama law, the Department of Transportation will automatically suspend your driver license upon notification of an arrest. However, Ingram Law LLC can file a civil complaint to ask for a temporary reinstatement while your case is pending.
Will I lose my job? Again, this will depend on many factors. However, what I can tell you is that if you have a professional license, it is often mandatory that you report it to your professional licensing board. In some situations, your failure to disclose it could lead to more problems with your professional licensing board. Please contact me to discuss your case independently.
