Effects of a possible conviction

Do you ever have to prove "insurability" in order to drive a "company" car?
Do you ever need to rent a rental car, for personal or business use?
If so, would denial of access to rental vehicles affect you or your employment?
Are you involved in any "domestic" (divorce, child custody, etc.) case or judicial dispute that a DUI conviction might affect?
Are you professionally licensed (i.e., teacher, attorney) or specially licensed (i.e., pilot, cab driver, etc.) such that you may lose such license as a result of a conviction?
Does your job involve "security clearance" or "top secret" status such that your employer may be unwilling to accept a DUI conviction?
Are you currently enrolled in college or university, where you may be subject to disciplinary suspension for DUI?
Do you have a student loan which may be adversely affected by a DUI conviction?
Are you presently in military/reserves or planning to join military/reserves?
If your license is issued by another state, are you aware that there may be additional penalties and/or insurance assessments if convicted in this state?
If you have not done so already, would you like to hire a lawyer in your home state with whom we may confer?
We recommend doing so. We are not licensed to practice law in your home state and therefore are not familiar with all the laws and consequesnces that might affect you.
