Working to Keep Your Life on Track
When facing the consequences of a second or third DWI, you may feel as if you have no choice but to accept your fate and wish for the best. Please do not fall into that trap. We want you to know that there are often defense options available to minimize the penalties or reduce your drunk driving charge to a non-alcohol offense.
North Carolina has five levels of penalties for DWI. A judge determines what level you fall in to. Depending on your level, you could be facing thousands of dollars in fines and possibly a year or more in jail. Your driver's license will also be suspended for a year or more. Put Matt Davenport on your side as you attempt to avoid these severe consequences.
We will look at every aspect of your case from the cause of the initial traffic stop, to how the breath or blood tests were administered, to the procedures taken at the police station following your arrest. If the police violated your rights in any way or handled your case inappropriately, we will use that opportunity to negotiate for a lesser charge. Prosecutors know that they need solid evidence to convict you and apply the maximum penalties. When this evidence is effectively challenged, they may be forced to rethink their options or even dismiss your case.
Do not hesitate to reach out to our attorney for the advice you need at a time like this. Your future is too important to "just plead guilty."
