The crime of Driving While Impaired is a hot button issue in North Carolina, and especially so in Charlotte and the surrounding counties. Many politicians and judges in our area have made DWI enforcement a key part of their campaigns for office. DWI carries a stigma that can cost you your current job, and can keep you from getting a new job. A conviction for DWI can cause you to lose your license which could keep you from driving to work or school.
If you have been charged with a DWI, you need an attorney who can help you avoid the potential pitfalls that the court system will put in your way. Call Street and Shook, Attorneys at Law, so that we can help you to minimize the consequences of your DWI arrest. When examining a DWI arrest, it is important to know whether or not the officer had the authority to stop your vehicle, whether or not the officer can prove that you were driving the vehicle, and whether or not there was probable cause for your arrest. Our office will examine the actions of the officer(s) that arrested you, and make sure that they complied with the law in stopping you and arresting you. Even if you were caught “Red Handed” we can help to reduce the penalties that the Court will impose against you.
