Driving while intoxicated (DWI) offenses are taken very seriously in Missouri. Sometimes referred to as driving under the influence (DUI) or operating under the influence (OUI), a conviction on drunk driving charges can result in extremely serious penalties, including the loss of your driver's license, fines and jail time. If you have multiple DWI convictions, you can face even more severe penalties. The increased insurance premiums can cost you thousands of dollars over time, and professional licenses, such as CDLs, may be in jeopardy.
With so much at stake, it is essential that you have strong representation from an experienced Missouri criminal defense lawyer who knows the law and has the ability to protect your rights. At the law firm of Deputy & Mizell, L.L.C., we provide proactive, aggressive representation to anyone facing charges for a Missouri drunk driving offense. Whether you are a resident or you were visiting the area on vacation, our Lake of the Ozarks DWI defense attorneys are ready to help.
Aggressive Defense Against Any Drunk Driving Charge
Many people make the mistake of assuming that there is no defense for a DWI and that they might as well save the time and money necessary to fight it and just plead guilty. Nothing could be further from the truth. A number of things can be challenged in these cases, many of which can lead to a dismissal or reduction in the charges you are facing.
When you hire our firm, we closely examine every aspect of the case. We build the strongest possible defense in an effort to obtain the most favorable outcome on your behalf. We have been successful in previous cases challenging the validity of the initial traffic stop, the accuracy of field sobriety or blood alcohol concentration (BAC) tests and many other issues.
We have experience handling all types of alcohol-related offenses, including the following:
- First-offense DWI
- Prior offender and persistent offender cases
- Breath or blood test refusal and other implied consent matters
- Minor in possession of alcohol
- Open bottle
- Boating while intoxicated offenses
