Case Reduced to Reckless Driving.

October 2015

Sometimes in the law, victory is not complete.  But still, finishing the case without a DUI conviction is a major victory for our clients.  No license suspension, no outrageous car insurance costs.  And when the state offers a reduction to reckless driving, it is our client's decision, and not ours, as to whether to take it.  Our client decided that it was a good deal in his case, and is happy to have had his DUI case reduced to Reckless Driving.  He will be off probation in less than two months, and will go forward without a DUI conviction.
