FAQs for Raleigh DUI Lawyers

How Are You Different From Other Raleigh DUI Lawyers?

When you hire Minick Law, you get a team of attorneys to handle your case. Two heads are better than one, and we take that seriously when preparing for your case.

Our attorneys are extremely knowledgeable and focus almost entirely on DWI cases. While most lawyers are required to take 12 hours of continuing legal education (CLE) per year, some of our attorneys take 20+ hours per year.

At our Raleigh office, Navi Sandhu not only goes above and beyond with continuing education, but bends forwards and backwards over any legal issue in front of him. He cares about each of his clients and spends a ton of time getting to know them. He has gone to pick up clients at their homes to drive them to court, met with people in their living rooms to discuss their case, and always goes the extra mile in the courtroom and with sentencing. He is unlike most other lawyers, and it would be difficult to find someone that cares more about their clients than Navi.

Will I Go to Jail if I am Convicted of a DWI in North Carolina?

While jail time is a possibility for any person convicted of a DWI, the realistic likelihood of jail time depends on a whole number of different factors. The vast majority of people charged with their first DWI are not sentenced to do any active jail time. Jail time is more likely for a person with prior DWI’s, a child in the car, an accident which causes injury to another person or driving on a license which is suspended for a DWI.

Will I be Allowed to Drive after Getting a DWI?

There are many driving consequences that can arise from a DWI. The length of suspensions related to DWI and the requirements for license reinstatement vary greatly depending on a number of factors, including: prior DWI charges, the blood/breath alcohol concentration (BAC) at the time of the DWI charge, and whether the driver’s license was suspended at the time of the charge. For a first offense DWI case in North Carolina, a person’s license will be suspended for one year. Most people convicted of their first offense will be able to get a limited driving privilege that will allow them to drive for work, educational, treatment, and religious purposes.

How Much Money Will Getting a DWI Cost Me?

The financial consequences of a DWI are significant and can include: attorney’s fees, court costs and fines, increases in auto insurance premiums, the cost of obtaining an alcohol assessment and completing any recommended treatment, continuous alcohol monitoring, inpatient treatment, and impact on employment.

Should I have been read my Miranda Rights during my DWI Arrest?

In North Carolina, officers frequently do not read Miranda rights at the time of a DWI arrest and often a suspect is never advised of Miranda rights during the entire encounter with police. In the context of a DWI arrest, the lack of Miranda warnings is not likely to result in a dismissal of charges. Most of the time statements made by a DWI suspect after arrest are not particularly important in the State’s prosecution. The suspect’s statements and field sobriety tests prior to arrest combined with a blood or breath alcohol result may be enough for the State to proceed to trial on a DWI charge.
