Client Arrested for DUI Faces Career Jeopardy


  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI)


Our client, a dedicated children’s services caseworker, faced a critical juncture in her career when she was arrested for DUI. The incident occurred late at night when Jane was pulled over for weaving along the center line near Indian Lake. Subsequent police investigation confirmed her intoxication, resulting in a DUI charge and arrest. Given the nature of her profession, a DUI conviction would have jeopardized Jane’s career, potentially leading to termination and rendering her ineligible for social work positions nationwide. This posed a significant threat to her livelihood and professional future.


Recognizing the stakes involved, Jane sought legal counsel from Gounaris Abboud, LPA. Through diligent advocacy, our firm negotiated with prosecutors to secure a reduction in charges from DUI to reckless operation, a minor misdemeanor. This pivotal outcome safeguarded Jane’s career, allowing her to retain her position in children’s services without adverse consequences. The successful resolution underscored the importance of skilled legal representation in protecting professional opportunities amidst legal challenges.
