Breckenridge DWAI Defense AttorneyClick For A Free Consultation
In Colorado, driving with a blood alcohol content between .05 and .079 can result in a DWAI charge. Though the penalties for DWAI are less severe than for DUI, a DWAI charge is still serious. It will stay on your record for the rest of your life. If you are ever arrested for DUI or DWAI again, the existence of the prior DWAI conviction can enhance the penalties you face. You should take a DWAI seriously, obtaining legal representation from an experienced attorney.
At my firm, the Law Offices of J.B. Katz, P.C., I defend people accused of DWAI, DUI and other alcohol-related driving offenses. I am experienced, knowledgeable in DWAI laws and DWAI defense techniques, and I am determined to obtain the best possible result for every client. I will stand up for you, defending your rights and freedom.
Defense Of DWAI Charges
I will look at every aspect of your case, looking for a way to obtain a dismissal of the charge or reduction to a nonalcohol driving offense. I will look at the reason for the traffic stop, the actions of the police during the stop and during alcohol testing, and other factors, looking for a way to obtain a dismissal.
If your breath test results are close to the bottom end of the range for either DWAI (.05) or DUI (.08) and there are other problematic factors in your case, this could put you in a stronger position to obtain a favorable downward negotiated plea. Even if the state’s evidence is strong and you are found guilty of DWAI, there may be actions I can take to mitigate the penalties you face.
Why Should You Hire A Lawyer To Fight DWAI Charges?
Some people who are arrested for DWAI are tempted to represent themselves or plead guilty. This is almost always a big mistake because you could overlook the one factor that could result in the dismissal of the charge.
If you are found guilty or plead guilty, you will not know how to go about mitigating the penalties. Having experienced legal representation can make a big difference in the outcome. Take some time to learn why you should hire a lawyer.
