DWI - DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED

A DWI arrest or conviction does not necessarily mean that you will lose your drivers license. What it does mean is that you need a lawyer. Most importantly, an experienced attorney who has success in helping clients to avoid and minimize the consequences of a DWI arrest. Our firm has over a decade of experience in helping clients avoid getting their drivers license revoked or suspended. We provide you with high quality, effective and compassionate legal representation for both criminal and administrative DWI-related drivers’ license suspension matters.

You need to be able to drive. We understand that and we will be relentless in fighting to prevent your drivers’ license from being suspended or revoked. Please contact our office today to schedule a free consultation so that we may begin to work for you.

Whether your license is revoked or suspended will depend on a number of factors. Generally, if this is your first DWI offense or if you have not had a previous DWI conviction in the last 10 years, we will probably be able to save you from a complete loss of your license. At the very least, we should be able to keep suspension or revocation periods to a minimum and secure a conditional license that will allow you to keep driving for limited purposes.

Please keep in mind, however, that there are many rules, prohibitions and exceptions applicable to DWI related license issues and that there never guaranteed outcomes to criminal or administrative hearings. For that reason, the sooner we may begin investigation, reviewing the facts and analyzing the case against you, the better chance you will have to keep your driving privileges and put this incident behind you. So protect your rights and drivers' license by contacting Wurman Law Group, P.C.

Any driver convicted of misdemeanor or felony DWI charges, even first time offenders, are required to install and maintain ignition interlock devices at your own expense on any vehicle you own or operate for a minimum of six months. For an Aggravated DWI offense or any repeat alcohol or drug offense within five years, a judge is required to order the ignition interlock system installed on each vehicle owned and operated by you during both the revocation period and any probation period that follows. The judge must also order an alcohol assessment for you as a repeat offender.

The penalties and fines can be severe for alcohol/drug related offenses. There are many factors involved in each and every stage from arrest up and through conviction that can have an everlasting effect on both your freedoms and privilege to drive. That is why it is critical for you to hire an experienced attorney to represent your interest at each and every phase of a drug and/or alcohol related offense.
