Early in 2019, our client was pulled over and arrested for suspicion of D.U.I.. Like many others in his shoes, he feared that the arrest would cause him to lose his job and affect his progress in his education and professional prospects.
During client consultation, we discussed his arrest, veteran status, experiences, and service-connected disabilities. As of today, most diversion programs (i.e., alternatives to traditional criminal convictions) are not available for cases involving D.U.I.. However, the Military Diversion Program was recently re-written to specifically include D.U.I. charges.
