DWI

If you or a loved one have been charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), you need to understand that you have a limited time to challenge some of the actions taken by the state. Although it may take them a number of weeks to set a hearing on your DWI charge, any suspension to your driver’s license must be challenged within 15 days of the notice of suspension (usually at the time of arrest).

Do not delay in hiring an attorney. This will allow time to request evidence and challenge actions by the state. This will give you the best chance to have a favorable outcome.  

Just because you’ve been charged with DWI, does not mean that you will be found guilty of one.

How To Challenge The Charge:

When we review your case there are certain areas where the state makes errors which could assist in your defense or even persuade the state to drop the charges against you. We look at things such as:

     Why were you initially stopped?

     Were your field sobriety properly administered?

     Did you have physical or other limitations which impaired your ability to complete the field sobriety test?

     Did the officer use tests which are not the standard field sobriety tests?

     Was there probable cause for you to be arrested?

     Was your blood or breath test properly administered?

     Was the machine properly calibrated? 

     Any other issue that makes your charges improper.
