Hiring a DWI Lawyer is Your Best Defense

Hiring a DWI lawyer is one of the most important steps you can take if you have been stopped, arrested, and charged with a DWI. While we understand that many DWI offenses are simply a lapse in judgment, the laws of the state are not quite so forgiving. This is especially true when talking about first-time offenders. In fact, the state often cracks down on first-time DWI violators so as to encourage them not do it again. Punishment can be severe and can include any, or all, of the following: fines, jail time, loss of driving privileges, mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device (IID), and even the requirement to complete a substance abuse education or treatment plan, though more severe penalties are often reserved for second or third offenses.

Being arrested for a DWI is stressful enough. Facing the reality that without the proper representation by a DWI lawyer, you could also have to face the humiliation of having an IID device in your car, not be able to drive to and from work, or even have to go to jail.  Explaining that to your friends, family, co-workers, and your employer can be an extremely frightening prospect. The reality is that all of these are on the table, which is why it is essential to hire us as your DWI lawyer immediately.


If you have been arrested for a DWI, the most important thing you can do is reach out to a DWI lawyer to represent your best interests. It is important to remember that if you do not have the right DWI lawyer and are convicted of a DWI offense, it will go on your permanent record. What this means is that in addition to the fines, jail time, and loss of the ability to drive, you will be living with a permanent stain on your record. While this may not seem important while you are undergoing the stress of dealing with the DWI charges, it is a much more impactful event in the long-term. This is because any time anybody, including employers and potential employers, pull your background report, they will be able to see your conviction for a DWI-related offense. Many employers will not hire somebody who has a record, and if you are convicted of a DWI, you will indeed have a record. It is far more advisable to exercise your constitutional guaranteed rights, ask for your attorney, and call us so we can represent you and work toward making sure that this does not make its way onto your permanent record.


As your DWI lawyer, we will examine all the facts of the case, find out where we can poke holes in the prosecution’s case, negotiate a plea bargain if necessary, and ultimately work to secure you the least amount of penalties, and long-term influence on your life.  The key is to call right away so that we can get started.
