Our Driving While Intoxicated Defense Lawyers are familiar with the multiple aspects of handling Driving While Intoxicated and Driving Under the Influence related cases from the investigative stage through trial. We also familiarize ourselves with the various DWI policies that are unique in many jurisdictions. In fact, we have worked with prosecutors to implement policies that consider collateral consequences for people charged with DWI related offenses. Our DWI Defense Attorneys work frequently with private investigators and forensic experts who form our Driving While Intoxicated Defense team to provide you with the best defense.
Please be aware that a DWI related conviction may have severe collateral consequences. In fact, if you are convicted of a DWI related infraction, misdemeanor or felony, you may be removed from the United States if you are not a citizen. Immigration laws frequently change, and to address this, our firm routinely consults with immigration attorneys when our client is not a citizen.
