Driving Under The Influence (DUI)/Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
A conviction for drunk driving (DUI/DWI) can result in serious, life-altering consequences for you and your family. In addition to the possible incarceration and loss of your driving privileges, a guilty can cost you over $10,000.00 in fines, increased insurance costs, ability to work, and the installation and maintenance of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. Given so much at stake, you need an experienced DUI/DWI attorney on your side to stand up for your rights and protect your liberty.
At Bennett & Ellison, P.C., our firm has extensive experience handling serious traffic issues, including drinking and driving (DWI/DUI), as well as other serious traffic infractions.
When you are pulled over, be polite and courteous to the officers on the scene. Do not offer any statements or consent to any searches. Do not consent to the field sobriety tests at the roadside. In some cases, the arresting officer may be found to have lacked probable cause to stop your car, cause to detain you to prolong his investigation and/or arrest you at the scene. We will present a strong defense on your behalf, including questioning the government’s evidence, including any failures in the procedure for the results of the breath test.
Fighting Against Consequences To Your Freedom And Driving Privileges
If arrested, two actions will be commenced: criminal charges and an administrative process related to your driver’s license. Bennett & Ellison, P.C. has extensive experience with and can assist you with both to maximize your freedom and driving privileges, which can save your job and eliminate unnecessary stress in your life.
