Avoiding or Reducing the Consequences of a DWI Conviction

A conviction for driving while intoxicated (DWI) — known in many other states as driving under the influence (DUI) — can have far-reaching consequences. It may require a lengthy probation period or even jail time. It can also mean the suspension or revocation of your driver's license, affecting your ability to drive to work. It can have financial consequences like increased insurance premiums and fines. We advise people to resist the urge to defend themselves without legal representation; the stakes are too high.

Fighting a drunk driving charge can require appearances at Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) hearings, in addition to court appearances. The DMV will schedule a refusal hearing if it is alleged that you refused to submit to a breath test. Our attorneys accompany clients to all court appearances and hearings, ensuring that the police followed required procedures throughout the process, administered all notifications and warnings, and used correctly calibrated testing equipment.

We are seasoned defense lawyers who understand the importance of fighting drunk driving charges. We also recognize that alcohol treatment, rather than punishment, is often a more effective long-term strategy. We fight for necessary treatment programs to help our clients avoid problems in the future and to lessen the penalties attached to their DWI charges.
