DWI Law and Processing

I'm an attorney experienced with law in personal injury, criminal defense, and DUI in Durham, North Carolina. I offer a unique approach to fighting for your legal rights, and am recognized by District Attorneys and Law enforcement officers across North Carolina as one of the most aggressive, knowledgeable, and effective DUI practitioners in the state. My office and I also take other traffic violations, criminal defense, and personal injury cases.

What the District Attorney does not want you to know:

  • He may not have his witnesses available for your case.
  • He may have favorable evidence for you and is not disclosing it.
  • You have the right to confront and cross examine all witnesses against you and you have the right to a fair and impartial trial.
  • There may be problems with his blood or breath alcohol evidence.
  • The alcohol that was measured may be alcohol that you drank after driving or alcohol in your breath, not from your stomach.
  • You may not have been not afforded all the rights and privileges allowed you by the US Constitution and the NC Constitution.

What you must do immediately to preserve your right to drive:

Questions you should be prepared to answer:

  • What were you doing prior to your arrest?
  • What alcohol had you consumed and how much?
  • Why did the officer stop you (if you know)?
  • What coordination tests did you take?
  • How well did you perform those tests?
  • What did you say to the officer?
  • What were the results of any breath tests? (Blood test results won’t be available until much later.)
  • Were there any witnesses to your behavior shortly prior to your leaving the place before your arrest or shortly after you were released from jail?
  • Were you allowed a witness to the breath or blood test and did you avail yourself of that opportunity?

How can we discredit the arresting officer’s testimony?

  • By disproving his recollection of the events.
  • By using documents prepared by him or others to discredit his version of the events.
  • By using testimony or facts gathered by my investigation to prove he is being dishonest.
  • By using video evidence.

What are the consequences of being caught and convicted of driving on a suspended license or revoked license?

If you drive after having your license revoked, you could be sent to prison. In addition, if you are convicted of driving with a revoked license, you will lose your privilege to drive for a much longer period of time. If you are not legally in the U.S. or on a Visa, you could be deported if caught driving with a revoked license.

What can you do to avoid losing your privilege to drive?

Hire an experienced attorney who is willing to fight for you and who understands the process of license revocation and restoration, who understands Department of Motor Vehicles and who knows Department of Motor Vehicles hearing officers and knows how to get answers from them.
