 Let the DWI attorneys at Gilles Law fight for you. We offer clients charged with DWI aggressive representation and zealous advocacy, from start to finish. Our attorneys understand the severity of the charges that you face and what is at stake. Furthermore, we understand that every DWI is different and every client is unique. We tailor our representation to each individual client, and provide the personalized service that is necessary.

DWI/DUI is a serious charge with serious consequences, and you should consult a DWI attorney immediately upon being charged.

Defending a DWI charge is a serious matter. Here is how we fight for you, if you have been charged with DWI or DUI:

  • Your DWI attorney will defend you by challenging every step of the DWI encounter. We will start by evaluating whether you should have been stopped in the first place. We will then evaluate whether there was probable cause for arrest. Next, we will examine whether proper post-arrest procedures were used in your case and if they were not, whether we may be able to get your case dismissed.
  • Your DWI attorney will evaluate your entire case and go over everything with you.  Because of this, you stay well informed during every part of the DWI process.
  • Your DWI attorney will explain to you what mistakes you may have made during the DWI stop and how that may impact your case.
  • We will discuss your goals with you. Based on these discussions, we will come up with a strategy that fits these goals.
  • We will make sure you are aware of how DWI sentencing works so that you are fully informed regarding the risks that are involved.
  • We will discuss the penalties, including license suspension and other collateral consequences of a DWI conviction.
  • Your DWI attorney will represent you at every stage of the District Court process, from your first appearance to your DWI trial, and will even be available to hire for an appeal, should that need arise.
  • We will discuss your potential eligibility for a limited driving privilege, should you be convicted.

Consequences of being charged with DWI

In North Carolina, a DWI conviction will stay on your record forever. It can never be expunged. DWI convictions can prevent you from getting certain jobs and having a valid driver’s license. A DWI attorney can help you understand the consequences you may face as well as whether you may be eligible for a limited driving privilege.

  • Even prior to being convicted, upon being charged with DWI, a civil revocation (30-day suspension of your driver’s license) occurs immediately. If you contact us right away, we may be able to get you back on the road much faster than that.
  • License suspension upon DWI conviction
  • License suspension for willful refusal of post-arrest breathalyzer test
  • DWI sentencing upon conviction
  • Other collateral consequences of DWI conviction 

A DWI attorney can help you navigate this process. If you have been charged with a DWI in North Carolina or DUI in South Carolina, it is imperative that you speak to a DWI lawyer/DUI lawyer immediately, so that you can get the best possible outcome.
