Navigating the waters of boating laws can be as challenging as steering through rough seas. At the Law Office of Vic Wiegand, Esq., we specialize in providing expert legal advice and representation in matters related to Boating Under the Influence (BUI).
Our understanding of the complexities of maritime law and our commitment to defending your rights on the water make us your ideal partner in legal matters related to boating and alcohol.
Boating Under the Influence is a serious offense that occurs when an individual operates a boat or watercraft while impaired by alcohol or other substances. Similar to driving under the influence (DUI), BUI is a criminal charge that carries significant legal consequences. The legal blood alcohol content (BAC) limit for operating a boat is the same as for driving a vehicle, and exceeding this limit can result in severe penalties.
Facing a BUI charge can be daunting, with potential consequences including fines, loss of boating privileges, and even imprisonment. A BUI conviction can also impact your personal and professional life, leading to a tarnished reputation and difficulties in employment. Navigating these legal waters requires skilled legal representation to ensure your rights are protected and your case is presented effectively.
Boating while impaired not only poses legal risks but also endangers the lives of the operator, passengers, and other individuals on the water. Alcohol and drugs can impair judgment, coordination, and reaction times, increasing the likelihood of accidents and injuries. It’s crucial to understand the responsibility that comes with operating a watercraft and the importance of sober boating.
Our law firm specializes in BUI cases, providing expert legal counsel and aggressive representation. We understand the nuances of maritime law and are committed to advocating for your rights. Our approach involves a thorough investigation of your case, challenging evidence, and negotiating with prosecutors to achieve the best possible outcome. Whether it’s negotiating a plea deal or fighting for your innocence in court, we are dedicated to representing your interests with the utmost professionalism and integrity.
If you or a loved one is facing a BUI charge, it’s essential to seek legal representation immediately. Contact the Law Office of Vic Wiegand, Esq., at (770) 886-4646 to schedule a consultation. Our team is ready to provide you with the legal support and guidance you need during this challenging time. Don’t navigate these waters alone – let us be your legal compass.
