‘Help! I Was Cited With A DWI! Can You Help Me Get My Driver’s License Back?’

Many people charged with drunk driving have never been in trouble with the law before. Some are caught by surprise when they are stopped while driving home from a social event after consuming a couple of beers, glasses of wine or shots of hard liquor. They may not feel inebriated, but then a traffic stop for an unrelated reason such as a fender bender can lead to an arrest on charges of one of the following:

  • DWI: Driving while intoxicated
  • DUI: Driving under the influence of alcohol
  • DUID: Driving under the influence of drugs

Your first concern – keeping your driving privileges – is no doubt important for your livelihood and lifestyle. We are ready to act quickly to increase your chances of keeping or recovering your driver’s license.

Other potential consequences, such as jail time, high fines and installation of an ignition interlock device, are also damaging. Worst of all, however, is a criminal conviction on your record. A criminal record can hold you back when you pursue jobs, leases, loans and other goals that you have in life.

Misdemeanor Or Felony?

If you have been charged with DWI, DUI or DUID by a state patrol officer or local law enforcement officer, you may be at risk of conviction of a crime such as the following:

  • A misdemeanor (for a first or second offense)
  • A felony (for multiple offenses)
Remember: Defense for a first-time offense may be as critical for your future as that for a second or third offense case. Even if you are convicted for the lesser crime of a misdemeanor, you could face fines, the suspension or revocation of your license and increased or canceled auto insurance rates. And a future DUI arrest could then be charged at the felony level, with a devastating outcome.

Mitigating Consequences Of A Drunk Or Drugged Driving Arrest

Being convicted of a crime is a matter for a municipal or state court. Losing your driver’s license is a civil, administrative matter involving the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT).
