First-Offense DWI Attorneys

A conviction for DWI can affect your life in many ways. Though it is unlikely you will go to jail unless there are aggravating circumstances in your case, your driver's license will be suspended, and you will have to pay a fine and higher insurance premiums. You may also have to complete an alcohol abuse evaluation and treatment program. All told, a conviction will cost you several thousand dollars, and greatly inconvenience you for at least a year.

Not every DWI arrest results in a conviction. Depending on the circumstances of your case — and with experienced legal representation — it may be possible to overcome a DWI charge and minimize the consequences.

A DWI Arrest Is Not The End Of The World

Our clients come from all walks of life — doctors and lawyers, factory workers and skilled craftsmen, young people and senior citizens, men and women. What they have in common is that they exhibited driving behavior that caused the police to stop and subsequently arrest them for impaired driving.

But police officers can make mistakes — and those mistakes can lead to positive outcomes for people arrested for DWI.

When our law firm represents you, we will carefully examine all aspects of your case, looking for a way to overcome the charge. Some of the many possible defense strategies that could be used in your case include the following:

  • The officer did not have reasonable suspicion to stop you.
  • Police did not follow proper procedures in operating a DWI checkpoint.
  • The officer did not properly conduct field sobriety tests.
  • The officer did not have probable cause to arrest you.
  • Your breath test was administered improperly.
  • You were denied the right to have a witness present at the jail, or were given an unreasonable bond.

In addition, Hale Blau & Saad will also put a priority on helping you regain your driving privileges. We will work diligently to minimize the consequences of your DWI arrest.
