Comprehensive Criminal Defense Representation
I handle every aspect of DWI defense, exploring your options and informing you of what defenses may be available. I can help with:
Breath and blood tests: If your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is measured at .08 or higher following a blood or breath test, you may think there is nothing you can do. The fact is, the results of these tests can be challenged on a number of different bases. I will thoroughly review your case to determine whether these tests would be considered reliable.
What happens after an arrest: For many people, a DWI charge may be their first encounter with the criminal justice system. This can be overwhelming and stressful. I can help guide you through the process every step of the way, ensuring you are never kept in the dark and answering all questions you may have.
Driver’s license suspension: There are two sides to a DWI case. There are criminal proceedings, which most people are aware of, and a civil proceeding involving driver’s license suspension, which is often overlooked. A DWI charge will result in an automatic suspension of your driver’s license, unless you request a hearing. This suspension happens shortly after an arrest, so acting quickly is essential. I can help represent you in your driver’s license suspension hearing and will work hard to protect your driving privileges.
