It would be useful to get a lawyer because in some cases it is possible to get either diversion or a discharge without conviction if you can show exceptional circumstances. Typically for a lower reading he would get a fine somewhere around $500 to $800 plus court costs and be disqualified from driving for six months. He has a one month stand down before he can apply for a work licence, and it would be a good idea to use a lawyer for the work licence. You will have to show hardship to get the work licence, but an experienced of drink-driving lawyer will be able to help with that.
