At our firm, we aggressively defend the rights of the criminally accused. We fight DWI charges aggressively to seek the best possible result for each client we represent. Most of the DWI/DWAI charges we handle are resolved by plea agreement, but we are always prepared to take a case to trial if the prosecution is unwilling to be reasonable.
Speak with an Attorney before You Make a Decision
If this is your first DWI, your friends or family may have told you to simply plead guilty to avoid the stress or cost of fighting your charges. This could be a huge mistake.
Although no attorney can guarantee a particular result in your case, the truth is that people need qualified legal representation. An attorney may be able to achieve a more positive result in your case by communicating to the prosecution any flaws in their case.
Law enforcement do make mistakes and DWI/DWAI charges are often based on evidence that has been obtained in a manner that may not be constitutionally sound.
If retained to handle your case, we will take time to ask important questions on your behalf:
- Did the officer have cause to stop your car?
- Did the officer perform the roadside field tests properly?
- Did the officer perform the breath test properly?
- Did the officer have probable cause to make an arrest?
Before you plead guilty and put your rights in jeopardy, let one of our experienced DWI defense attorneys speak with you and help you make an informed decision about your case.
