Arrested for DUI or DWI?
DWI Criminal Proceedings
After a DWI/DUI arrest, many people are uncertain as to what to do. We recommend that you retain an experienced DUI/DWI lawyer to protect your rights. The penalties for driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Missouri are severe. We will provide a thorough and aggressive defense. We have the experience and resources to investigate:
- Probable cause for the stop
- Sobriety test was properly administered and documented
- Was the breathalyzer machine properly maintained and calibrated
- Whether blood or urine tests were performed and tested according to standards
DWI Administrative Proceedings
If you have been arrested for drunk driving, or “DWI,” you likely have a court date for the driving while intoxicated charges, for which you could face criminal penalties. You must also deal with the possibility of losing your driving privileges, including the possibility of a temporary suspension, during which you may be eligible for hardship driving privileges, all the way up to a lengthy revocation, during which you may be ineligible for hardship or limited driving privileges. The two issues are resolved in completely separate legal proceedings, with different rules and, often, in separate jurisdictions or courts. You will need a good DWI attorney to prevent you from losing your license which could impact your ability to work.
