If you are facing criminal charges for driving while intoxicated (DWI), you can benefit from qualified legal counsel. A DWI charge could carry serious consequences. If your case goes the wrong, way you could lose your license, your insurance premiums could rise dramatically, you could face substantial fines, and you could even go to jail. A DWI conviction will likely haunt you for many years to come, even hurting you when you apply for a job.

The criminal defense attorneys at our firm know you are concerned about what might happen to you, and we can help. There may be challenges that our St. Louis DWI lawyers can make against the charges you are facing. We will review your DWI case carefully, identify any weaknesses in the charges, and take the necessary steps to ensure that your case is the strongest possible.

Keeping Your Record Clean

If your attorney does not take the extra steps necessary to ensure the best outcome of your DWI case, you may accept an unnecessarily severe sentence.

Our goal is to keep your record clean and to help you avoid losing your freedom and your driving privileges. We will work hard to negotiate the best possible outcome for you. Often the best choice is to fight the charges. We are committed to defending your rights and to the principle that you remain innocent until proven guilty.

By retaining us, you can rest assured that you will be treated fairly and that you will have a complete understanding of what is going on in your DWI case.

Getting the Legal Help You Need

Our lawyers use the legal tools at our disposal to force the Prosecutor to prove that all the steps of your arrest were performed properly. If they were not, then the State’s case is significantly weakened. We cannot promise a specific outcome because each case is unique. However, you will find that we are highly-skilled, professional, and that we work hard to protect your rights.

When you work with our firm, you will get expert legal help from an attorney who knows how to guide your case through the complexities of the legal system. You will be certain you are being treated fairly by the justice system. We will always insist:

  • That the Prosecutor provide us with the name and address of anyone they plan to call as a witness, as well as copies of every written or recorded witness statement. This will allow us to prepare the kind of questions that can weaken the state’s case against you.
  • That the Prosecutor provide us with any information or material they have which would show that you are not guilty of the DWI charge against you, or which may help you get a lighter sentence.
  • On receiving copies of records showing that the equipment used for tests was functioning properly, and that the police officer giving the tests was properly certified.
  • On receiving proof that you were advised of all of your rights. If you were not, the Prosecutor’s case may be weakened.

We force Prosecutors to produce their evidence. Our St. Louis attorneys will evaluate all aspects of your driving while intoxicated case so that you will have the strongest possible defense.

If you have been arrested in the past 15 days for having a blood, breath, or urine test result above .08%, or refused to take a chemical test after being arrested for one of these types of offenses, you must take immediate action, otherwise your license will be suspended or revoked. In Missouri, you must appeal the refusal/arrest within 15 days or else you have completely waived many of your rights.
