A+++Lawyer!!! Mr. Richard Holcomb and his agency helped me to get out from under the clutches of two creditors who threatened to sue me for funds I may not have even owed them. Mr. Holcomb kept me informed the whole way and got me two great settlements, even if it meant his firm got less.

What is Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence of an Intoxicant?
This is Hawaii’s DUI law. You can be convicted of OVUII if you operate or have physical control of a vehicle and any of the following is true:
- You have an alcohol concentration of 0.08 on either a breath or blood test; or
- Your mental faculties are impaired by any amount of alcohol; or
- Your ability to operate a vehicle carefully is impaired by any amount of drugs.
As you can see, you don’t have to blow a certain number to be convicted of drunk driving in Hawaii. It will be enough if any amount of drugs or alcohol impairs your ability to drive safely.
Can I refuse to take a breathalyzer?
Yes. However, Hawaii (like virtually every other state) has an implied consent law. Essentially, this means you consent to take a breathalyzer when you accept a driver’s license. If you refuse to take the test, your license gets suspended for at least a year. That’s even if you aren’t convicted of DUI/OVUII.
Will I go to jail for a first-time DUI offense?
It’s possible, though not certain. If this is your first DUI offense, or the first in a five-year period, a judge can sentence you to 72 hours of community service, a fine between $150-1,000, or between 2 and 5 days in jail. Judges have discretion, so you might only receive the fine or community service or both and avoid any time in jail.
Will I lose my license for a DUI/OVUII conviction?
Yes. Your license will be revoked for one year if you are convicted of OVUII. However, you might qualify for a restricted license with the installation of an ignition interlock device.
