DUI / DWI Defence Law
Contact our skilled and qualified DUI/DWI attorney if you have been charged with driving under the influence.

We also give excellent DUI/DWI defence services at Criminal Defence Connect.
Operating a car while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, including prescribed prescriptions, is illegal in every state. The offence is referred to as driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI), operating under the influence (OUI), or a comparable title depending on the state.
Benefits Of Our Service
Our experienced criminal defence lawyer at Criminal Defence Connect may seek to have the case dropped or the charges reduced even if evidence of blood-alcohol content reveals impairment. In many cases, our attorneys can negotiate for reduced sentences and therapeutic diversion programmes. Depending on the seriousness of the offense and if it is the first offense, the defendant will face a criminal term (such as community service, a fine, or possibly jail) as well as a driver’s license suspension. An attorney may be able to help the defendant restore driving rights with conditions, such as utilizing an ignition interlock device (IID) or being allowed to drive just to and from work.
Penalties of this Charge
Drunk or intoxicated driving is a severe offense that courts take seriously, especially because it can be fatal to other drivers. As a result, a DUI case has a lot riding on it. DUI offenders typically lose their license for a period of time, must pay a substantial fine, and maybe sentenced to jail (especially if it is a repeat offence).
As a result, you should hire an experienced lawyer to assist you in resolving this case and avoiding penalties. Our goal at Criminal Defence Connect is to assist all of our clients in avoiding DUI/DWI accusations. Even if our defence attorney is unable to persuade the prosecution to drop the case, he or she may be able to decrease the sentence or find another way to make the situation more bearable.
Defences Against DUI / DWI Charges
You can’t be convicted of a DUI in some places unless you were really driving a car. So, if you were sleeping in a parked car when the cops arrived in one of these states, you probably had a good defence. However, in most states, a DUI conviction does not require proof of actual driving. All the prosecution needs to show is that you were intoxicated while “operating” or “in actual physical control” of a vehicle.
In order to prove that a driver is inebriated, there are several ways to do it. Chemical test findings, on the other hand, demonstrate how much alcohol and drugs the motorist had in his or her system in many circumstances. It’s also typical for the arresting officer to testify at trial about his or her observations of the driver’s impairment. Whatever the case may be, we will make every effort to give you the best defence possible.
