DWI Defense

North Carolina DWI Defense Lawyers

A conviction for driving while impaired (DWI) in North Carolina can result in a suspended license, jail or prison, and a permanent criminal record. Meanwhile, many charged with DWI are acquitted. Others receive limited driving privileges during their period of license suspension, and alternative sentencing options such as a deferred sentence. If you have been charged with drunk driving and want to get the best possible outcome, it is important to talk to an attorney at the first opportunity after your arrest.

Fight those DWI charges! Contact our Winston-Salem office today for a free consultation with a DWI defense lawyer.

Our attorney will explain possible DWI defense strategies, and the likely outcome of each. Do you need a drivers’ license to attend school, work or take care of your family? You may be able to get limited driving privileges while you wait for your court date. How strong is the case against you? Our DWI defense lawyers and forensic specialists may be able to successfully challenge police procedures at the time of your arrest and the evidence supporting the DWI charge.

A judge might fail to be convinced a borderline .08 or .09 BAC breathalyzer reading is adequate evidence of intoxication. The police or highway patrol officer might not have had justification for your traffic stop or arrest. Your field sobriety test might not have been administered properly, or police may have failed to follow standard procedures.

Driving On A Suspended License/Revoked License

A conviction for driving on a suspended license or revoked license can mean the license will be suspended for additional time or permanently revoked. There may be a good explanation for your action. Feel free to contact a lawyer and find out if you have a case.
