I want to express my heartfelt thanks to the both of you for your help in resolving this matter with expeditiousness and relatively minor consequences on my behalf. I really can’t express strongly enough how what you’ve done for me has kept my world from turning upside down. Certainly as these things go, if I ever have a need to call upon your services again I will do so without delay. – C. G.
It is illegal to drive a motor vehicle after having consumed enough alcohol to result in an alcohol concentration of .08 or higher (.04 or higher if driving a commercial vehicle) or while you are under the influence of an impairing substance (i.e. drugs – whether legal or illegal). This alcohol concentration can be determined by a breathalyzer test or a blood test, depending on the circumstances. After being charged with Driving While Impaired, or DWI, your driver’s license is immediately revoked for 30 days. After 10 days, you may be eligible for a limited driving privilege. When you are pulled over, don’t hesitate to call us, your South Carolina and North Carolina DUI lawyers, as soon as possible to get the best possible outcome.
A conviction for a DWI is a misdemeanor in most instances (but could be a felony if there are multiple offenses) and will result in a criminal record as well as an enormous increase in automobile insurance. The level of punishment issued ranges from loss of license and fines to jail time to seizure and forfeiture of your vehicle. There are a number of factors that affect the level and severity of the punishment.
Fortunately, a charge of DWI is not automatically a conviction. You have the right to hire a South Carolina or North Carolina DUI lawyer and to be heard in court. Regardless of the evidence against you, there are ways to challenge the state’s case and a skilled DWI defense attorney knows what they are. Never just give up.
