Challenging a Charge of DUI / DWI
Driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) is a serious offense. If you are facing a DWI charge, there is a chance that you may lose your license. You need an experienced lawyer to handle your DWI matter to protect your rights and preserve your license.
Being convicted of a DUI can carry significant penalties. You will incur fees, higher insurance charges and possibly even time in jail. These penalties increase if you are a repeat offender. Please click here for more information about DUI penalties.
If you are charged with DUI or DWI, it is important to look at all of the factors of your situation, beginning with the actions of the police at the stop. Some of the items I will examine include:
- Was there a valid reason for the police to pull you over?
- Did the police follow proper procedures during their arrest?
- Were field sobriety tests administered in a proper manner?
- Did the police properly administer any blood alcohol test such as a breathalyzer or intoxilyzer?
