It used to be that you could drive around while you were a little buzzed, or even slightly drunk and the worst that could happen to you is that the cops would drive you home. Nowadays, felony DWI, or driving while intoxicated, has turned into one of the most severely penalized crimes. Our society has no time for people who endanger other peoples lives with their bad habits and if you have been charged with a DWI or a DUI offense, then you need a DWI attorney right away.
You will be happy to hear that many DWI charges are often dropped before they ever get to court because the circumstances under which the accused was stopped are illegal. A good DWI lawyer will be able to pick apart your case and help prevent it from every going to court, saving you quite a bit of cash.
The financial cost of a DWI offense these days is extraordinarily expensive. As soon as you are charged, you may lose your driver’s license, and even if you don’t, your insurance rate will immediately skyrocket. You can’t even begin to imagine how much your insurance will go up, and continue to go up for the years after your offense, and if you are convicted, the price of driving may actually be too much for you. This is all the more reason why you need a good DWI attorney to assist you in fighting the charges.
