Baton Rouge area residents know that driving after they have been drinking may not be a good idea. The consequences of a DUI conviction are serious. Those who are facing a DWI need to speak with an experienced attorney to help them with their legal situation.

The State of Louisiana takes drunk driving seriously. This is a crime that neither the public nor law enforcement tolerates, which is why the penalties are so severe. For example, when a person is arrested for a DWI, they have just 15 days to request an administrative hearing. If this hearing is not requested, the defendant will have their driver’s license suspended.

Our law firm has the experience that a person facing a DWI charge needs. We help drivers who are facing license suspension, stiff fines and even jail time. We help our clients understand that they have options and that they may not have to plead guilty. We pursue favorable results including license reinstatement, dismissed charges, reduced fines, and community service instead of jail time. Our attorneys are experienced in every aspect of a DWI charge and know how to navigate the legal system in favor of our clients.

Being arrested for a DWI is embarrassing and stressful for a Baton Rouge driver. But, it can also cause a lot of legal headaches and severe penalties. Our law firm understands these complications a defendant may be facing and know how important it is for their client to avoid a conviction. Choosing the right attorney to defend yourself against these serious charges may mean the difference between a conviction and the charges being dropped. Using an experienced attorney just makes sense in order to not have your life disrupted and your personal and professional reputation ruined.
