With more than 60 years of combined experience, our Lake Charles DWI defense attorneys are very familiar with the Louisiana DWI laws and the penalties for conviction. We will fight to help you keep your driver’s license, have the case dismissed if possible, or work to reduce the charges and penalties you face. There is a time limit of only 15 days following a DWI arrest to file for an administrative hearing with the Louisiana Department of Motor Vehicles, in order to determine whether your license will be suspended or not. This hearing is one of several ways in which we can begin to defend your case. Because of the strict time limitations, if you or a loved one has been charged or arrested for DWI, you need to contact us immediately for our firm to be able to provide to you a defense to the fullest extent as allowed by the law. This administrative hearing is but an initial step, and if you do not request a hearing, you will automatically lose your driver’s license.
Our DWI lawyers are certified in the same standard field sobriety procedures as the police officers. Therefore, we are prepared to cross-examine law enforcement regarding your DWI stop, and the methods used to determine your sobriety level.
