If you need a DWI attorney, you are probably looking at a driving-while-impaired citation and wondering how to move on with your life. Barrett & Howell Attorneys at Law can represent clients who have been charged with this offense, and we can help you understand your legal options. The consequences of drinking and driving in Raleigh can be harsh, and many people struggle to cope with the aftermath. Penalties can be as severe as two years in jail, permanent license suspension and hundreds of dollars in fines. Blood alcohol content limits are lower too, if you are under 21 or a commercial driver. A lawyer may be able to provide guidance and representation for your DWI charge.
What to Do After a DUI Accusation
Many people mistakenly assume that taking a Breathalyzer test or submitting to a field sobriety test may waive their legal right to dispute DWI charges. In most cases, this is not true. An attorney can assist by analyzing the circumstances surrounding the charge, the manner of arrest, blood tests and other evidence in the case. Following up on each of these items may provide insight into your case and legal recourse. If you are facing a DWI, you should deal with any immediate physical repercussions, such as injuries, and you should consider contacting a lawyer for a consultation and representation.
