What We Defend
Driving While Impaired (DWI)
DWI is short for “driving while impaired.” Most people know that you are “driving while impaired” if you blow at or above the legal limit (.08) while driving after drinking alcohol. But, you can also be charged with a DWI when you have had no alcohol to drink. It is now more common to see DWI charges related to use of marjuana, sleeping aids and other prescription medications. The effects of a DWI conviction are far reaching and can be quite expensive. A person convicted of a DWI may face both criminal AND civil penalties, each having long-term effects on their criminal record, Department of Motor Vehicles’ (DMV) record, and wallet.
