Driving While Impaired

Driving While Impaired (DWI) charges are one of the most serious allegations a driver can face in North Carolina. The potential consequences of a DWI could include hefty fines, community service hours, a suspended license, jail time, and even a felony charge, depending on the circumstances. While DWIs fall into distinct patterns, each case is unique and presents its own challenges and opportunities. An experienced DWI lawyer will request available video, challenging the state's Intox breathalyzer machine's reliability. Look into an unreliable officer's pattern of arrests, and interviewing witnesses who believe the client was not impaired.

Under NC law, DWI’s can be alcohol OR drug-related.

DWI Charges may involve one or more of the following:

Multiple DWI
Vehicular Manslaughter
Breath & Blood Tests
Field Sobriety Tests
Suspended License
Interlock System
