A Drunk Driving Conviction Can Have Long-Term Consequences
We Protect Your Rights And Defend Against OWI Charges
An arrest for drunk driving does not mean a conviction is automatic. Being pulled over and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol is a traumatic event. Law enforcement and prosecutors claim to have your best interests in mind. They want you to plead guilty immediately, so you can move on with your life.
Your first move should be to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney at Sheehan & Associates, P.L.C. We have your best interests in mind, not prosecutors or police officers. We attend to all details of your criminal case and know the consequences of a drunk driving conviction.
With so much at stake, assert your rights to legal representation before talking to anyone.
Drunk driving charges can take many forms, including:
- Operating while intoxicated (OWI): A blood alcohol content of .08 and higher
- Operating while visibly impaired (OWVI): A blood alcohol content of .08 or lower
- Super DUI: A blood alcohol content of .17 and above
Super DUI is a law that was recently enacted in response to drunk drivers well over the .08 blood alcohol content (BAC). If your BAC is at .17 or higher, you face serious, substantially increased penalties. Jail time is increased, as are the fines you face.
Prompt Action Is Important
It is important to enlist the services of an experienced drunk driving defense lawyer immediately. From the reason for the initial stop to the procedures followed during sobriety and chemical testing, we investigate all aspects of your drunk driving arrest. If any step taken by the arresting officer violated your rights, we will bring that to the attention of the courts.
Fighting for the best outcome is our focus, whether it involves getting an OWI reduced to an OWVI, negotiating a careless or reckless driving charge, or having the charges entirely dismissed.
