An Effective DWI Defense Attorney

A drunk driving arrest can be a costly, life-changing ordeal. Even if this is your first brush with the law, a drunk driving arrest and conviction will impact your life in many ways. The most important thing you can do is to hire an experienced DWI lawyer as soon as possible.

There have been many changes in Louisiana’s DWI laws since I first began my practice. I am well-versed and trained in all aspects of DWI law, from field sobriety tests to breath, urine and blood testing methods. These tools are not foolproof and are often prone to error and substantial integrity issues.

The outcome of your case is often time-sensitive, so act fast to protect your rights. Fines and penalties are significant and mandatory. Your personal liberty and ability to drive and support yourself and your family are at stake.

Act Quickly To Fight Your License Suspension

You might have been provided a temporary permit to drive (usually for 30 days) upon arrest. Your driving privileges will be suspended 30 days from the date of arrest, even if you still possess a hard copy or duplicate of your license. This is automatic. You have the right to an administrative hearing to contest this suspension, but you must request this hearing within 30 days from the date of arrest. If you fail to do so, your license will be suspended for a minimum of three months, and it is very expensive, and sometimes impossible, to get a hardship license to drive during the suspension period. It is critical to contact me as soon as possible.

Building A Solid DWI Defense

Your case may seem impossible, and your guilt may be presumed, but I will fully investigate every aspect of your case, for every possible defense. Often, evidence of intoxication can be thrown out if the police did not follow proper procedure regarding the stop, investigation or administration of intoxication tests. You will want your attorney to know the full extent of DWI law.
