Winston-Salem Driving While Impaired Defense Lawyer

Strong Defense Against Driving While Impaired Charges

Driving while impaired (DWI) is one of the most common charges that people face. More than with any other type of charges, DWI can hit anyone from every walk of life. Although DWI charges are common, the fines, jail time and other penalties associated with DWI convictions can be extremely serious, especially when they involve underage drunk drivers or multiple offenses.

I take a strategic, aggressive approach combined with a commitment to compassion for my clients. I understand the anxiety you are facing, and my staff and I will do everything we can to help you.

First Offense DWI

The consequences for a first offense DUI are serious. Although different factors can alter the severity of the penalties, first offense DWI could result in the loss of driving privileges for a year, fines and up to 60 days imprisonment.

At John E. Fitzgerald, Attorney At Law, I can help defend you against the DWI charges and represent you in the administrative process with DMV hearings to retain your driving privileges.

Second And Subsequent DWI Convictions

The penalties for DWI increase with each successive conviction. At the highest level, you could be facing thousands of dollars in fines, permanent license revocation and years imprisonment.

College And High School Students And DWI
