Driving While Impaired
As former prosecutors our office is proficient in handling DWI charges in multiple counties throughout North Carolina, including Burke County, Caldwell County, and Catawba County. We believe it is our responsibility to do everything possible to ensure that you achieve the best possible results for your case.
Why you need an attorney
Before you decide to simply plead guilty, we want to make sure you understand that a driving while impaired charge, if not handled properly, can have severe long-term consequences and, depending on your record, could even result in a three-year prison sentence, a permanently revoked license, or a significant increase in your car insurance costs.
A driving while impaired charge can be a very serious and complicated matter that can have significant consequences in every aspect of your life. Even if you plan to plead guilty, we can walk you through the process and ensure that you receive the minimal sentence possible.
What we will look into
Questions we will consider in looking into your case include:
- Did the officer have sufficient reason to stop you?
- Did the officer have probable cause to arrest you?
- Is there proof beyond a reasonable doubt to convict you?
If your license is suspended, we can also assist you in obtaining a limited driving privilege so you can continue to drive to work and for other purposes as allowed by statute.
If you have received a prior DWI charge that was not handled properly, we can help resolve any issues that may still be outstanding.
It is important for you to have an attorney who is interested in fighting for preservation of your driving privileges and freedom. Contact our attorneys today at 828-221-2444 or visit our office located at 204 South Green Street, Morganton, North Carolina 28655, for help with your situation.
