Have you been charged with drink driving?

In Queensland, drink driving is considered to be a serious offence, and depending on your blood alcohol level, can have severe penalties. As our lives often depend on our ability to drive, particularly to work and to commute with children, it is essential that any licence restrictions, disqualifications and other penalties imposed are done so without significantly impacting your ability to travel to work, with family or your freedom to drive generally.

Disqualifications for drink driving in Queensland range from anywhere between 1 month to 5 years, and drink drivers may be subject to imprisonment for up to 18 months. In these situations, you should retain a criminal defence lawyer who has extensive experience in drink driving matters.

Appearing in Court with a solicitor before a Magistrate will provide you with the benefit of having a legal representative present a comprehensive set of submissions in order to ensure you receive the best possible outcome. Our lawyers also regularly prepare applications for work licences if your licence has been lost as a result of drink driving charges, including the preparation and execution of affidavits to support your application to be able to drive to and from work.
