How A DWI Can Affect You
A DWI arrest or drunk driving charge can result in the loss of license and even jail time. If you have been arrested for a DWI or DUI or you are currently facing criminal charges, you need strategic and aggressive criminal defense to protect your rights. Even a first-time offense can result in serious penalties.
You can take legal action to protect your rights, defeat your charges, and minimize the consequences of a DWI arrest. Contact our attorneys today to protect your rights.
What Steps Will We Take?
- Fully investigate your case, examining the facts of your arrest. If we determine that law enforcement officers did not have probable cause to pull you over, we will aggressively work to defeat your charges.
- Review evidence obtained through breathalyzer and field sobriety tests and challenge any evidence that was illegally obtained. We can also protect your rights in a breath test refusal case or if an officer inappropriately administered any test.
- Seek to negotiate a plea bargain and aggressively assert your rights to minimize penalties and challenge any evidence presented against you
- Advocate for your rights to prevent drivers’ license suspension. We may be able to obtain a hardship license on your behalf for purposes of work or school.
If you refuse a breath test, you have only 30 days to file a suit. If you did blow, you only have 15 days. We can take immediate action to protect your privileges until a hearing is held.
Do Not Accept A Traffic Ticket
When you are ticketed for a moving violation, speeding, careless or reckless driving, or driving while on a suspended or revoked license, you need a criminal defense attorney who can protect your rights. Missouri licenses operate on a points system, and any loss of points can result in the loss of your license.
If you agree to pay a fine, you are pleading guilty and will lose points taking a conviction. This will cause an increase in insurance rates and can also affect a later suspension or revocation.
