Why You Need a DWI Attorney

Benefit from Our Experience

From Both Sides of the Courtroom

Did you know, you can be arrested for driving under the limit of 0.08%? You can be arrested and charged with Driving While Intoxicated even if you are under the limit if the arresting officer thinks that, based on the circumstances, you are intoxicated. These circumstances may include allegations of bad driving, an odor of alcohol, red and/or watery eyes, or slurred speech. If you are under the 0.08 limit, you could also be charged with Driving Under the Influence which is sometimes called "driving while buzzed.". You can also be charged with either DWI or DUI even if you are under the influence a non-alcoholic substance.

Today, DWI & DUI enforcement has never been stricter. There are enhanced penalties for driving with a very high BAC (aggravated DWI - 0.18 or higher) and you can be charged with a felony if you have a prior DWI conviction (even from out-of-state). You can also be charged with a felony if you are driving while intoxicated for the first time and minor children are present during the alleged offense (Leandra's Law). Whether you are pulled over during a "routine" traffic stop, stopped at a checkpoint, or otherwise accused of driving while intoxicated, you may be asked to submit to a breathalyzer test on the side of the road and/or at a police precinct. Additionally, you may be asked to perform a coordination test in front of a video camera. If you refuse to take these tests, you may face an automatic license suspension and the fact of your refusal may be offered as evidence against you. The subsequent prosecution may result in a combination of incarceration, a criminal conviction, license revocation, and the permanent loss of your car.

No matter what your situation entails or how complicated matters may seem, we will go above and beyond to help you secure the most favorable outcomes possible. Although you may be worried about what the future holds, you are not alone. We are here to fight tirelessly for you from start to finish.
