PRACTICE AREAS

A DWI CHARGE CAN...

TAKE AWAY YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE

When you get convicted of a DWI, you can lose your driver's license. No one who drives needs to be told how much that can affect someone's life. After driving for so many years, it's easy to take the freedom allowed by driving for granted.

PUT YOUR JOB IN DANGER

It's pretty difficult to hold down a job if you can't get to your job. In addition, if you have a job in the medical field, your medical license might be revoked if convicted of a DWI. When your job is on the line, don't settle for a lawyer who doesn't fight tooth and nail for you.

CREATE A PERMANENT CRIMINAL RECORD

Getting a DWI isn't the end of it. The DWI stays on your record and if you lost your job, then it will affect your chances of getting a new one. But with the help of a good lawyer, all of this can be avoided and your life can get back to normal much more quickly.

CASE RESULTS

STATE VS AG


Very difficult DWI 2nd case and a weapon case from the same day. I was hired after the previous attorney refused to try the case because he said it was too difficult. While it was a difficult case, I fought with the prosecutor over the admissibility of their evidence and, after many hearings, convinced the state to DISMISS BOTH CHARGES.

STATE VS AR


A client was charged with stealing a car. Unfortunately, the client was caught red-handed. I was able to get the client DEFERRED PROBATION ON A FELONY.

STATE VS RP


In this case, the client had a car accident and left the scene. I was able to work with the client's insurance company and the prosecutor to get him a REDUCTION and UNSUPERVISED DEFERRED.

STATE VS RCP


A client was a commercial truck driver charged with driving an overweight vehicle. The prosecution originally wanted over $3000 in fees. After an attack on the maintenance of the scale used to measure the truck, I was able to force the state to DISMISS the case.
