DO YOU NEED A DWI LAWYER?
Every state has some sort of "drunk driving" statute. The term "drunk driving" is in quotes because none of these laws require that you be "drunk" or "intoxicated" to be guilty. All that is required is that your ability to operate a vehicle has been impaired to any extent at all or that your Blood alcohol level exceeds the state limit (which is now .08% in all states).
A DWI LAWYER CAN HELP...
ASSESS YOUR LEGAL SITUATION
An experienced DWI Defense lawyer can help you understand what you are up against and the fines you may be required to pay. A DWI lawyer mostly deals with DWI matters and knows the process inside and out – including options that a public defender may not tell you.
EXPLAIN THE CONSEQUENCES
The consequences of a DWI vary greatly from state to state and a DWI lawyer will be able to explain how those consequences in your state apply to you such as (1) harsher punishments for those arrested with BAC limits over .08, (2) special laws for underage drivers arrested for DWI, (3) possible community service or plea bargaining, (4) overlapping jurisdiction of Courts and your state's motor vehicle licensing department to suspend or revoke your license, and (5) contingent license programs that allow you to use your vehicle to get to and from work.
MANAGE THE PROCESS
Dealing with the motor vehicle department can be frustrating and time consuming. A DWI Lawyer can manage the process for you by completing the required forms; making phone calls; scheduling and/or representing you at a Motor Vehicle Department suspension hearing, and making other necessary arrangements.
REPRESENT YOU IN COURT
An experienced DWI Lawyer knows the ins and outs of the courtroom and may be able to obtain a lesser sentence for you if your situation and state law allows for it.
DON'T KNOW IF A DWI LAWYER IS RIGHT FOR YOU? HERE ARE SOME GENERAL GUIDELINES:
Definitely hire a DWI Lawyer if you already have several DWI's and receive another; or if your DWI arrest was the result of an accident or if anyone was injured; or if you are a professional driver whose livelihood depends on keeping your license.
Seriously consider hiring a DWI Lawyer if you've been arrested for a second DWI (in the same or another state) or were arrested with a BAC limit over double the legal limit as harsher penalties may apply.
You might want to hire a DWI Lawyer if you don't understand your rights or DWI laws, what you need to do, or the consequences you face. You also might want legal representation if you are in a profession (or plan to be) that requires bonding or in which any criminal conviction might prevent you from getting or keeping a professional license. If you don't know the requirements, then you need expert advice before handling the case yourself.
What others are saying...
"David was awesome. From the first phone call he was very attentive to the needs of my case. I called around to several different lawyers and he was the only one who actually listened to my concerns in full before throwing a price out to me. He communicated honestly with me from the beginning to the end. He ensured I was comfortable with pricing and continued to check on me and give me info on my case. I am overly satisfied with the outcome of the case I took to him and would recommend him in a heartbeat. David is a people person, its not just about the money to him, but the outcome of his clients! I'd give 10 stars if I could!"
