Aggressive Defense for First Time DUI/DWI Charges
A first time DUI charge requires an aggressive criminal defense, as the penalties can be quite severe. Any subsequent DUI/DWI charges you may face in the future will carry serious criminal and civil penalties if you have been convicted on your initial charge.
Since a DWI conviction is serious, people charged need to speak with an experienced attorney immediately. Our firm will promptly request a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles in order to protect your driving privileges, and obtain a temporary driver's license.
We represent people charged with DWI, including students of East Carolina University and Pitt Community College.
