What Will Happen In Your DUI Drunk Driving Case?

When charged with a DWI, two legal questions are important in determining how to handle your case. First, did the officer have a reasonable suspicion to stop your vehicle. Second, was there probable cause for your arrest. The answers to these questions can be the deciding factor between a guilty plea and a not guilty plea. Our attorneys look closely at these questions in every case to determine the best course of action.

Even if a guilty plea is appropriate, there are approximately 30 different factors that the court will look at in a DWI or DUI case to determine the punishment for the offense. Such factors include, the level of alcohol involved, prior DUI / DWI convictions and whether you had a valid license at the time of arrest. The firm's attorneys will look at all these factors, to determine where you stand. In addition, the firm's familiarity with the law and the local justice system can make a real difference. A DWI conviction can have fines as high as $4,000. The amount of the fine is somewhat up to the presiding judge's discretion, however; by statute, there are limitations on how much you can be taxed. By understanding what your punishment would be if you simply pleaded guilty, our Concord DWI defense lawyers can usually negotiate a much more favorable sentence.
