Understanding DWI Charges
A DWI charge is one of the most technical and complex areas of law. From the justification for the stop, field sobriety tests, preliminary breath test, justifying arrest, rights waiver, to the procedure used to take the blood or breath sample, every aspect matters. Graystar Legal has extensive experience guiding clients through the legal process as it relates to a drunk driving arrest. In Winston-Salem and communities throughout North Carolina, our DWI defense attorneys stand ready to protect your driving record and your future.
If this is your first drunk driving arrest, you must make sure you’re familiar with and understand the consequences. They can include potential jail time, suspension of driver’s license, obtaining an alcohol assessment and treatment, potentially being on supervised probation, $1000 fines, and that’s just a few. It is our goal to shield our clients from the full force of these criminal penalties.
Don’t Go It Alone
With many traffic violations, individuals often consider proceeding without a defense lawyer. Whether it is simply paying a ticket or appearing in court, it is wise to have a skilled defender at your side. Paying a ticket — even a minor offense — is considered an admission of guilt and will likely result in points being added to your driving record. With enough points, you might lose your driving privileges or face severe consequences. Let our firm examine your offense and provide the legal guidance you need.
