New Orleans DWI Attorney

DWI Penalties in Louisiana

Penalties for conviction on a DWI offense can be extremely harsh first-time a first time offense, you can pay fines up to $1000.00 and be incarcerated for up to 6 months. Subsequent DWI convictions can result in imprisonment for up to 30 years, with the first several years being served without the possibility of parole or probation. No DWI charge should be treated lightly or with the hope that the court will be lenient in your case. If you have been charged, you are entitled to be represented by an attorney, and should exercise this right as fast as possible. It can make all the difference in your case.

Getting Your DWI/DUI Charges Reduced or Dropped

Fortunately, there are many DWI defenses that may be possible in your case. An unlawful police stop can result in the charges against you being dismissed. If the evidence against you came from an illegal search and seizure, it will not be admissible in court. Chemical tests are known to have flaws, both in how they are administered and in the testing units that are used to perform them. If errors in these tests are found, a prosecutor's case can be severely weakened. It is important, though, that the firm be involved early in your case in order to maximize your chances for a favorable result.

When you were arrested, both a criminal case and an administrative license suspension action were started against you. Now is the time to take up your defense so that your freedoms can be protected.
