We Fight to Protect Your Rights And Freedom
Drunk driving is one of the most common criminal offense charges in the commonwealth of Kentucky. Being accused of driving under the influence (DUI) can have damaging consequences that will affect the rest of your life and your loved ones if you do not get a strong defense.
The trial process is complex and stressful, but the long-term penalties that come from the conviction are very severe. You may have to serve time in jail, pay huge fines and lose your driver’s license. Not only does an arrest bring shame and embarrassment, but the allegation can also cause you to lose your job and your reputation, causing even more financial and emotional agony to your family.

Penalties For Driving Under The Influence
In the state of Kentucky, no adult driver can operate a motorized vehicle if they have more than .08% of alcohol in their blood. Drivers who are under the age of 21 and thus count as minors cannot have any more than .02% of alcohol in their blood. If you have been accused of either of these offenses, two of the primary penalties include jail time and high fines. The amounts of both categories greatly depend on whether this is your first, second or third offense.
The breakdown of some penalties for degrees of severity is designated as follows:
- First offense: You could face 48 hours to 30 days in jail and pay a fine of $200 to $500, depending on the judge’s decision, and a mandatory $375 service fee.
- Second offense: You could face up to six months in jail and pay a fine of $350 to $500 and a mandatory $375 service fee.
- Third offense: You could serve up to one year and jail and pay a fine of $500 to $1,000 and a mandatory $375 service fee.
In addition to these fines, you may also be forced to pay more subtle costs, such as your bail and/or your insurance company. You may often have your driving license suspended as well, which greatly restricts your ability to get to work or school.
Fighting A DUI Conviction
Being charged with drunk driving can seem like a hopeless situation, since courts tend to take the side of the state. In reality, however, there are many situations in which the defendant is a victim, especially when the authorities making the accusation are found to be in error.
Get Reliable Help
A DUI charge can be a complicated matter. The evidence may initially point to one scenario, but a deeper examination could reveal that yours was an improper arrest on account of the police or that you had a prior medical condition that made it look like you were under the influence of alcohol. Our experienced criminal defense lawyers at Landon Law are ready to defend your case no matter what.

Would 1000% recommend to anyone, and I know if I ever need a lawyer in the Lexington/Richmond Area, that’s exactly who I’m going to.- Julian
Couldn’t be more pleased with Landon Law. I specifically worked with John Landon for two individual cases. Both got resolved without a hassle. John was attentive and very personable. Took time out of his personal life to speak with me multiple times via phone call or email. I can strongly say that by the end of your time with him, you’ll consider him a friend as well as an attorney. Never worked with a more personable and respectful firm. I am very appreciative and grateful for what they have done for me. Will highly recommend them to any of my friends in the future in need of legal help. Thank you John, and thank you Landon Law!- Anonymous
They are the best..their fees are pretty fair and reasonable. Cheaper than any other lawyer I called. I worked with Charles Landon. Every time I had a question, concern or feeling hopeless, my text or phone call was always returned quickly. The outcome of my case was way more than I expected in my favor. He made sure that I never felt alone, that we were in it together. The confidence he had of himself reassured me that I was in good hands. He wasn’t judgemental or arrogant like most other lawyers. Just down to earth, he doesn’t stop fighting for your best interest. I definitely recommend them if you want a powerhouse fighting for you.- Noretta
Charles has helped me a lot I would definitely recommend him for any case no matter the situation he is a great lawyer and has helped me progress on my life and get through some things as well thanks Charles I greatly appreciate everything you have done for me.- Amanda
Soooo lemme just start with how I got charged with wanton endangerment class A felony and Charles Landon got the E N T I R E thing DISMISSED!! Do y’all hear me!!?? DISMISSED!! He is without a doubt the best attorney I have ever had in my life and I’ve had a few sadly /: But with Charles I would highly highly hiiiiiiighly recommend his services. Not only did he get the absolute best outcome for me, it was very impressive how obviously intelligent, professional, and intuitive he was yet super chill and down to earth at the same time. Also, he always kept in touched by updating me with the progress of my cases and never skipped a beat when answering my calls/texts. Sometimes I would even call him when I was super anxious because I was overthinking and nervous and he would gently lay out the facts & our game plan for me again and remind me not to stress to much which helped soOooOo much. He took my feelings into consideration and truly made me feel important and heard. I could literally go on and on about how amazing of an attorney he is. But to make it simple, Landon Law IS the best choice!!
Forever grateful for him :))- Anonymous
I had Charles Landon with a case that had been going on 2 years. He answered every phone call, question and always made sure I was informed and had the best defense possible. When my case started I was facing 20 years my case ended with me getting 5 years probation. Beyond grateful for him. Landon Law is one of the few defense attorneys I have seen that truly fight for you as much as they are able to.- Ashlee
