DWI Defense

A Smarter Approach To DWI Defense

Drunk driving is one of the most common crimes committed in the United States. And it is not always committed intentionally or knowingly. Many responsible social drinkers get pulled over and are horrified to discover that they are over the legal limit.

While DWI may be common, it is treated very seriously, and anyone charged with DWI faces significant consequences if convicted. That’s why it’s important to work with a lawyer who has a strong command of the state’s DWI laws and related procedures. That’s what you’ll find at the Missouri DWI & Criminal Law Center. We use our knowledge and experience to help you fight your DWI charges or otherwise resolve them in the most favorable manner available.

In Missouri, the punishment for a standard, first-time DWI offense would be a guilty plea resulting in two years of probation and a suspended sentence (also known as a suspended imposition of sentence, or SIS). An experienced attorney can fight and beat the standard option in most cases. Our firm has a high rate of success for clients.

A Local Approach To Each Case

While the drunk driving laws are uniform across Missouri, DWI practices and punishments can vary depending on the county. Each prosecutor has a different philosophy, and that can make a big difference. Our experienced attorneys have spent considerable time in each of these courts, and we tailor our approach accordingly.
