3 reasons to fight your DWI charge

If police pulled you over and charged you with driving while intoxicated (DWI), you may think you have no hope for fighting the charge. Many people automatically assume that a DWI charge is definitive and there is nothing to do to fight back, especially if you feel the charge is unwarranted.

However, the truth is that you can take action to fight back against your DWI charge in St. Louis and the surrounding area, and it is likely in your best interest to do so. Drunk driving defense has helped many people avoid the harsh consequences that can result from a DWI conviction.

1. Mistakes may have been made during your arrest

Sometimes when police make a DWI arrest, they make mistakes that should be addressed in court because they affect the validity of your charges. St. Louis County police are required to follow specific guidelines and protocols when they make a drunk driving arrest. A qualified attorney can examine your case to see if your arrest followed protocol, and if not, how it can be contested.

2. A DWI conviction can have serious consequences

Missouri law sets forth the penalties for a DWI conviction. Even if this is your first DWI, the consequences can be severe. Depending on your particular case, you may face both administrative and criminal charges, and a first DWI conviction carries a driver’s license suspension.

3. A St. Louis DWI attorney knows how to help

You should not have to face your DWI charges alone, because the law surrounding drunk driving is complex and requires a strategic and aggressive DWI defense. There is no reason for you to back down from your charges, especially when your case may be more complicated than it initially seems. 

Consulting with a DWI attorney can be a smart initial step to fight your charges. Getting a lawyer on board is one way you can work to prevent the severe legal penalties that come from a DWI conviction and can negatively affect your future.
