Do You Need a DUI/DWI Lawyer?
Some states call it DWI (Driving While Intoxicated), while others refer to it as DUI (Driving Under the Influence) but both terms refer to the same offense. Every state has some sort of “drunk driving” statute. We quote “drunk driving” because none of these laws require that you be “drunk” or “intoxicated” to be guilty. All that is legally required to be proven is that your ability to operate a vehicle has been impaired or that your blood alcohol level exceeds the state limit (.08%).
The consequences of a DUI/DWI differ drastically from state to state and are influenced by your age, blood alcohol limit (BAC), whether you have been arrested for DUI/DWI in the past, and if you caused injury or death during the DUI/DWI.
Convictions on your record can have a negative impact on everything from job applications to your ability to maintain your driver’s license. If you don’t know the requirements, then you need expert advice before handling the case yourself. Take the first step toward protecting and preserving your way of life by speaking with our attorneys.
You might want to hire a DWI Lawyer if:
• You don’t understand your rights or DWI laws, what you need to do, or the consequences you face
• You are in a profession (or plan to be) that requires bonding or in which any criminal conviction might prevent you from getting or keeping a professional license.
Seriously consider hiring a DWI Lawyer:
• Have been arrested for a second DWI (in the same or another state)
• Were arrested with a BAC limit over double the legal limit
