Vigorous DWI/DUI Defense

If you've been charged with Driving While Impaired (DWI), you first must realize that this is a very serious offense.  How to approach this charge, and the decisions that you make going forward, will affect you for the rest of your life.

Being  convicted of a DWI/DUI is something that can drastically alter your  well-being.  You will likely lose your driver's license, can potentially  spend time in jail, lose your job, and pay a hefty fine.  The good news  is that being charged with a DWI/DUI is not the same as being convicted of a DWI/DUI!  People  who have never set foot in a court room, or who have never been charged  with a crime, routinely are charged with DWI/DUI and should not be  ashamed or embarrassed.  You should not allow a single bad decision or  lack of good judgment affect you for the rest of your life.

The Do's and DONT's of DWI/DUI Law

The best thing that you can do if you have been  pulled over for suspected DWI/DUI is to IMMEDIATELY contact an attorney  with experience in handling such offenses.  Our lawyers fight on behalf  of our clients nearly every day in courtrooms all across North Carolina  who have been charged with DWI/DUI, and we offer free consultations to  ensure you that you will be receiving the highest-quality  representation.  

If you are pulled over for DWI/DUI keep in mind  the following DO's and Dont's, as your actions can drastically affect  your chances of beating a potential conviction:

  • DO provide the officer with your license and registration

  • DO treat  the officer with respect and be polite and cooperative; however, you  also must be aware of, and invoke certain Constitutional rights you  enjoy as a citizen or person residing in the United States

  • DO record your conversations and interactions with the officer if at all possible

  • DON'T allow a search of your vehicle by consent

  • DON'T tell the officer where you have been and how many, if any, alcoholic drinks you may have consumed

  • DON'T perform any field sobriety tests or give an breath sample at the scene unless you are 100% sure you will pass

  • DON'T panic if you are arrested, stay calm and call an attorney as soon as possible!

I've Been Arrested for DWI/DUI, Now What?

First and foremost, RELAX!  You have not been  convicted of any crime and should try to remain calm.  You will likely  be released on bond or have to appear in front of a magistrate, but you  will have the opportunity to make phone calls and you should use this  opportunity to contact a DWI/DUI lawyer before speaking to anyone else!  

If  you have been charged with DWI/DUI please give one of our attorneys a  call today for a free consultation in which we can answer all of your  questions and discuss all of your options.
