Our Firm's Practice Areas
If this is your first DUI offense, then your potential penalties can still be serious, but less severe than those for
multiple DUI charges. Even so, you cannot afford to hire less than the best DUI defense or you could end up spending time in jail and have to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars in fines. Multiple offenses, on the other hand, can lead to a
felony DUI. In Kansas, a third or subsequent DUI conviction will result in a felony on your record. In Missouri, a third or subsequent DWI arrest can result in as many as 7 or 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. Don't take chances with a less-than-accomplished attorney when you are facing these charges and potential penalties.
Our firm also provides representation for administrative license hearings. Unless you retain a lawyer with the willingness to fight for your innocence to an administrative judge, you could be subject to a
driver's license suspension ranging from 1 year to multiple years, costly mandatory ignition interlock, and a drastic increase in insurance costs. This is a common problem for drivers charged with an
under 21 DUI. Drivers under 21 years of age can incur a suspension with a very low BAC result -- even as low as .02. And, though its true there may be no additional criminal penalties for such a low BAC, an arrest can still lead suspension and increased insurance costs. Regardless of your age or number of charges, our firm can provide effective defense and legal assistance.
Perhaps you have failed a breath or blood test or a
field sobriety test. There are countless ways to attack the results of such tests. For example, the breathalyzer machine may have not been calibrated correctly, the officer may not have followed the protocol, or the breath test machine may not be functioning correctly, the law enforcement official administering the test may have made a mistake, your blood sample may have been contaminated during processing or the chain of custody, or a medical condition may have affected your ability to perform a field sobriety test. We can help you uncover evidence to fight the results of your test or review the validity of evidence being used against you. Our firm also handles cases involving charges of
DUI accidents, including those resulting in
vehicular manslaughter. Contact our firm now. Get experienced help to fight these charges and to do all that is possible to avoid these fines, penalties and charges on your record.
