DUI Penalties in Hawaii
Work with a Honolulu DUI Attorney
Any type of criminal conviction can be life-changing. In situations involving
DUIs and other drunk driving-related offenses, however, you could be facing
repercussions on multiple levels. Unlike other criminal matters, DUI offenses
will require two hearings: one in the criminal courts and another hearing
with Hawaii's Administrative Driver's License Revocation Office.
If you have been arrested for DUI in Honolulu, your case will be time-sensitive.
You could only have a limited amount of time to request a hearing with
the ADLRO. I, Attorney Kevin O'Grady, have 19 years of legal experience and am a
member of the National College for DUI Defense. I know how to protect your rights, driving privileges, and freedoms.
