Our Guide to DUI/DWI Attorneys
In addition to providing you with valuable information about DUI/DWI statistics, penalties, fines, jail time, and license suspensions in your state, DMV.org also helps you find information about local attorneys who specialize in defending these cases.
If you're charged a DUI/DWI, you don't want a lawyer who specializes in divorces, do you? You need an attorney who is familiar with the drunk driving laws of your state. And some states give you only 10 days to appeal the on-the-spot license suspension that happens the moment you're arrested, so act fast to get a DUI/DWI attorney on the case.
A lawyer with experience in DUI/DWI cases will know all about your state's implied consent laws, what the burden of proof is for the arresting officer, what penalties can be negotiated with the judge in the jurisdiction where you were arrested, and what your rights are under the law. A DUI/DWI laywer can even pick apart the roadside sobriety test conclusions and challenge the BAC readings.
Anyone convicted of DUI/DWI has put lives in danger, so most DUI/DWI convictions carry weighty penalties that will make your life very difficult. It's definitely worth having an attorney on your side to help with your defense and ease your journey through the court system.
Use our DUI/DWI attorney guide for your state to find information about qualified lawyers who can help you win your case.
