Default DUI

I think most of you know what happened to me 2 years go...

This is hurting my job opportunities bad.

I heard lawyers are able to get it off your record, about how much would I be looking at to do that? Any attorneys here?

If anybody knows about this stuff. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure a lawyer can help something get off your record 2 years later.
You already pled guilty.

Unfortunately, that's not always the best way to deal with things. I knew someone who was pulled for DUI and hired an attorney to take care of it. The attorney said he had a hard time reducing the charges because when my friend was pulled, he admitted to the cop he had too many and it was all caught on camera.

I understand that but what I mean is you already pled guilty 2 years ago.
I'm not sure if they can open up the case.

After you got it did you hire a lawyer?
I had a few friends that got DUIs in Cola, and as soon as they got outta jail they called a lawyer.
It was pretty expensive but it was dropped from their record, or changed to a wreckless driving offense.
I feel like as long as you pay for a lawyer theyll somehow get it dropped.

yep if you get pulled for dui don't say anything. don't take the breathalyzer. as soon as you can get a lawyer. a lawyer will be able to get you a temporary work license early on. then if not dismissed will get it knocked down so its not a dui on your record. and then there is handling it first don't drink and then drive

You made your bed now you have to sleep in it.

As others have said- you should never admit to a crime when pulled over if you don't want it on your record. In this country you have the RIGHT to remain silent, then get an attorney. Had you done that, then you likely wouldn't be having this problem 2 years later. Nothing you can do about it now.

If you have a decent lawyer then you don't have to lie.

But anyway, doesn't matter now. What's done cannot be undone.

Yea a lawyer won't make you lie.
He'll find some little thing and it will get your case expunged.
Like I heard a story of a guy getting it dropped because the cop didn't finish reading him his rights as he was being put in the car.

Try looking into getting it expunged. PTI is out of the question since you plead guilty though. Good news is unless you are trying to get top level clearance most corporations on background check you for 7 years.

Unfortunately there is no way to get it off your record. That's one of the deterrents to keep people from drinking and driving. Give it time and employers will forgive.

On a side note, I think its pretty sad that 90% of the posts in this thread are about how to get off from a DUI and advice on not talking, not blowing, and getting your case reduced. I cannot for the life of me understand why some people would rather focus on creative ways to get off a charge INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON NOT DRINKING AND DRIVING!!!!. There is a reason South Carolina has the 2nd highest alcohol related fatalities in the entire nation. 38% of all fatalities in the state are DUI related. And people are more interested in telling others how to get off after they get stopped for drunk driving instead of telling people not to drive drunk. I simply don't understand.

I understand what you're saying, we've all heard it and everyone should hear it but he didn't come here to get a lecture; he's obviously learned his lesson and understands the gravity of the matter from everything he's gone through and the repercussions of his arrest. He came here asking for advice on finding a job with a DUI on his record, not to be lectured about something he's been kicking himself for for the past two years
