Arrested for DWI in North Carolina?

By Burch Law Office  Jun. 15, 2010 10:25a

If you have been arrested for DWI (driving while impaired) or DUI (driving under the influence) in the Greenville, North Carolina area, then you could be facing some of the stiffest penalties available for this violation. Not only could you have your license suspended, be fined and placed in jail, but your car insurance premium could be drastically increased and subject to a 400% surcharge. As an example, if you are now paying a yearly premium of $900, your payment could increase to $3,600 per year. Hiring a skilled DWI attorney is necessary to help you avoid the heavy penalties connected to a DWI or DUI offense. At the minimum, we can at least make attempts to help you obtain a lesser penalty or alternative sentence.

Field sobriety tests are used by police officers as a method of determining if a person's abilities are impaired by either alcohol or drugs. You may have submitted to one of these. These tests are not always accurate and are subject to flaws and misunderstandings. Some of these could include instructions not being correctly carried out, adverse weather conditions, uneven pavement or even insufficient lighting. Our skilled attorneys know the right questions to ask and what needs to be done to help you build a strong case.
