Driving While Intoxicated
When you are pulled over for suspicion of DWI, the likelihood of being arrested is great. When the officer has you step out of the car you have a 95% chance of being arrested. Once out of the car, performing the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests is a nightmare. These tests are difficult to perform by anyone, alcohol or no alcohol. It is completely subjective and at the officer's sole discretion to arrest you. Our law firm can help you get a favorable outcome from this unfortunate event.

LICENSE INFORMATION: Many assume that when they are arrested and their license is taken by the officer during a DWI arrest that it is automatically suspended. In fact, officers will lead you to believe this is what happens. This is not necessarily the case. If you have been arrested for a DWI or other alcohol related offense you only have 15 days to request a hearing to contest the suspension of your license. This is the first important deadline following your arrest! Call our office for help with this important step to contest the suspension of your license by requesting a hearing.
The second important step is to have your case thoroughly reviewed by an experienced DWI attorney to discuss your options within the first 60 days following your arrest. In most cases, we can prevent you from having to appear in court that first date you were given since it is usually a pretrial conference setting or, as one judge calls it, an arraignment date. We often are able to review your case and the evidence against you in the comfort of your own home via phone or in our office.
