An individual charged with their first DUI is facing serious penalties, including:

  • Criminal conviction on their record
  • Up to 364 days in jail
  • Fine of up to $2,500
  • Substantial amount of community service
  • Suspension of driving privileges for either 6 or 12 months
  • Revocation of driving privileges if convicted of the DUI

The potential penalties can be devastating for individuals if they do not have the proper representation. But at the Dohman Law Group, we are able to avoid a criminal conviction, avoid jail time and avoid the revocation of driving privileges on a first-time DUI arrest for the vast majority of our clients.

Most people arrested for a DUI are dealing with the legal system for the first time. You probably have questions about what is going to happen to you and what you should do next. Questions such as:

  • “Will I have a criminal conviction on my record for the rest of my life?”
  • “Is my driver’s license going to be suspended?”
  • “Am I going to go to jail?”
  • “What do I need to do before my first court date?”

The answers to all of these questions are complex and depend on your situation. At the Dohman Law Group, our lawyers help you navigate through the unfamiliar experience of being arrested for DUI and work extremely hard to avoid a criminal conviction – whether that is winning your case at trial or negotiating a sentence that avoids a conviction. We will sit down with you, formulate a strategy to guide you through the process and work with you to accomplish your goals. Contact us now for a free 60-minute consultation!


Cary was kind, sincere and very knowledgeable about every aspect of the law. He kept my son from doing jail time for 3 offenses. Yes, we hired him again for another problem. The DUI’s and battery charges were dropped. We can’t thank Mr. Cary Dohman enough!

Cary was unlike other lawyers I’ve known in the past as he genuinely listens and cares. He promptly returned phone calls and discussed issues with me before, during and after the trial.

– Ed

I hired a lawyer that stood me up and I found Cary and read his reviews and became interested. I called Cary and explained my situation and he got straight to business. He informed me everything that I needed to do, and he didn’t make a promise that he was unable to keep.

– Petralin

This was my first time getting arrested. This was my first DUI. I’m pursuing a career in the healthcare field and needed to fix my mistake. However, I didn’t fix my mistake. Cary Dohman did.
