DUI offenses

DUI defendants often claim for personal injury and are generally charged with having violated two separate laws. The first is driving under the influence in violation of Queensland law. The second law is driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.05% or greater in violation of Queensland state law.


If you are convicted and charged with having violated either law, they have lost their DUI case. A DUI conviction will appear on your record as a misdemeanor conviction for life, unless the person has obtained an expungement of the conviction. As a real estate agent, you definitely don't want this on your record.

DUI Conviction

The best way to protect your rights, freedom, and reputation when facing a DUI conviction is to hire a DUI lawyer to help you or a loved one through the DUI charge process to mitigate the damage it can cause. Since each DUI is unique, it will be up to a DUI lawyer to look at the specific facts of the case, and identify the best defence to assert.

In many cases there are weaknesses in the prosecutions case charges, which if argued properly, can lead to reductions in charges or a complete dismissal. It is important to remember though that regardless of the facts, time is of the essence. If charged with DUI offence you only have 10 days from the date of the arrest to file for a formal review hearing with the court.

It is possible for those charged with DUI to have their license returned and the suspension removed from their record, following the court case. No matter your situation, they should consider contacting a DUI lawyer to discuss their case.
