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.

Can I Refuse a Field Sobriety Test?
There are multiple types of field sobriety tests used by North Carolina Law Enforcement in order to determine the sobriety or level of potential alcohol impairment of a driver. In North Carolina, a charge and/or conviction of a DUI/DWI is extremely serious and can result in severe consequences such as the loss of your drivers’ license or even imprisonment.
Got pulled over? Know your Miranda rights!
Miranda rights are a set of legal rights that include the right to remain silent, the right to an attorney, the warning that anything you say can be used against you in court, and the right to end police questioning at any time. These rights must be read to individuals in custody before interrogation to protect their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.
