DWI / DUI Defense
Our DWI lawyers will explain your rights and the strengths and weaknesses in your DWI case.
Being charged in North Carolina with driving while impaired (DWI) or driving under the influence (DUI) can mean jail time, court fines, loss of driving privileges, increased insurance rates, employment consequences, and financial uncertainty.
These issues are magnified by the fact that North Carolina DWI/ DUI law is one of the most complex areas of criminal law in the State of North Carolina.
In order to prepare a thorough defense to your DWI charge, it is important to know how police officers and district attorneys investigate and prosecute DWI cases.
Our DWI attorneys are required to attend the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) course on DUI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing. This is a three day (24 hours) course taught to police officers when they are being trained in charging DWIs. We regularly attend conferences and training related to North Carolina’s DWI laws.

Criminal Defense Lawyers
Did the police have the right to stop my car? Pat me down? Ask me questions? Search my house? Our Constitution was designed to make sure that our police follow certain procedures when obtaining evidence or making an arrest. There is an enormous amount of U.S. Supreme Court case law on the topic of search and seizure and your Fourth Amendment rights.

Traffic Ticket Lawyers
Speeding tickets and traffic infractions may seem like minor matters, but they can have serious implications on your license and insurance. The relationship between the criminal court system and the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is complicated and the impact that your ticket can have on your driving privileges is of the utmost importance.
Generally, a conviction or finding of responsibility in the courtroom will cause the traffic charge to be notated on your driving record with the DMV. This DMV driving record is one of the primary tools that insurance companies use to set rates related to your auto insurance policies.
During our consultation we will try to determine the consequences that could result from your traffic citation and create a plan for minimizing the impact the ticket will have on your life and pocket book.
There are many possible ways to reduce the impact of driving charge, some through the District Attorney’s Office, some in the form of judicial relief, and some that are opportunities offered through the DMV. We take your driving privilege seriously and we treat your case that way.
How We Can Help
Effectively navigating a criminal charge and its consequences begins with planning. During our initial consultation we want to learn about the details of your case and the impact the charge is having on your life, so that we can provide sound advice on your next steps.
We will work together to create a detailed Action Plan on your case. This Action Plan will give you a to do list and explain how we plan to proceed as your attorney. Getting the best result on your case means having the best information when making important decisions.
