Arkansas lawyers representing those accused of drunk driving
If you are charged with a DWI, your right to drive is in jeopardy. This puts your ability to go where you want, when you want in danger. Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, you need a lawyer to handle your case for you. Many people think they don’t need a lawyer for such a “simple” case. The truth is that neither misdemeanor DWI or Felony DWI are simple. These cases involve much more than your word against that of the officer’s. Frequently, complex issues arise concerning constitutional rights, probable cause, officer training, inaccurate science, and unreliable equipment. These issues may allow you to challenge the case.
Through our investigation, we may uncover facts showing the police conducted an illegal search and seizure in violation of your constitutional rights. Police may have also failed to properly administer field sobriety and breathalyzer tests. These are grounds for having the evidence against you thrown out, often leaving the prosecutor with insufficient evidence to prove your guilt.
We will carefully evaluate the evidence in your case and thoroughly examine all of your options and alternatives. We may be able to negotiate a reduction or dismissal of your charge. If we arrange a plea agreement, we may be able to get you into a diversion program or some other alternative to jail or prison. If your case goes to trial, we will zealously defend your rights and we will not back down.
