Comprehensive DWI / DUI Defense Representation
Being arrested for driving while intoxicated in Missouri can be a life-changing experience. Law enforcement agencies in western Missouri are vigorous in enforcing the state’s tough DUI/DWI laws. A conviction for a first-time offense can bring jail time, heavy fines and a variety of consequences that can have a long-lasting impact on your life.
Many individuals do not realize that a DWI arrest involves two separate legal problems for them to address. The state will suspend or revoke your privilege to drive automatically. The more obvious problem is the criminal DWI charges that you can face.
Your Privilege To Drive Is At Stake
If you are accused of driving with a blood-alcohol content over the legal limit or for breath test refusal, you have only a limited amount of time to request a hearing to challenge the automatic license suspension. In DWI cases where the driver agrees to take the chemical test, the time limit is only 15 days from your arrest; if you refuse to take the chemical test, the timeline is extended to 30 days to raise your challenge. It is critical to obtain the advice and representation of a seasoned DWI/DUI defense attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights.
