Many people wrongly believe that a DUI or DWI charge is not a serious crime. According to DrinkingandDriving.org, In America on average nearly 12,000 people die every year in DUI-related accidents. 900,000 are arrested each year for DUI/DWI and a full 1/3 of those are repeat offenders. Every year harsher laws are being passed every year and judges are coming down harder on those convicted of these offenses.
An alcohol related driving conviction can affect you for the rest of your life
The cost of court-ordered punishments can reach thousands of dollars; community service, probation, alcohol rehab programs, re-education programs, diving schools, and interlock devices. In addition to jail sentences you can lose your driver's license for long periods of time even for the rest of your life. Auto insurance will either be canceled or the premium will be astronomically high.

We are dedicated to handling all areas of drunk driving cases.
We know that evidence in a DUI / DWI / OVI case is part scientific, part legal, and part common sense.

Thorough knowledge of the law and
procedures enable us to attack the State's case against our clients.
Building your defense
We develop our defense by working with our clients to understand exactly what occurred at the time of the arrest, before the arrest, and after the arrest. We investigate the actions of the police and determine whether to challenge their use in trial by conducting a full review of the manner and techniques used in giving any roadside sobriety tests and/or breathalyzer tests. We review all video tapes and audio tapes and visit the scene of the arrest when appropriate. Being well prepared helps us to protect YOUR rights!
