Were You Charged With Driving While Impaired?
North Carolina’s penalties for drunk driving are among the harshest in the nation. Even if this is your first DWI charge, you could be facing:
- Up to three years in prison
- An ignition interlock device on all vehicles you own
- As much as $10,000 in court costs, fines, and fees, not including other costs
The law considers aggravating factors such as your blood alcohol level at .15 or higher or having a child in the car with you to determine the severity of your offense. Additionally, if you have a conviction, the charge could lead to even higher fines and incarceration time if you have a repeat offense in the next seven years.
We Will Investigate Every Detail Of Your Arrest
It is clear a DWI/DUI can have a huge impact on your life. Yet, many lawyers barely give these cases more than a glance before telling their clients to plead guilty and move on. They have no idea the details of your case they could be missing that could have a dramatic effect on the outcome of your case. Many attorneys simply want to know the number that you blew.
At Sullivan Law , located in Brunswick County, that’s not our style.
Formerly with the district attorney’s office, our firm’s founder knows the technicalities involved with the tests police officers must administer if you are pulled over and they suspect drug or alcohol use. Our firm investigates whether the officer has done the tests correctly.
For example, though the penalties are the same for drunk driving and drugged driving, the investigation should involve an entirely different battery of tests. But that doesn’t always happen.
Attorney Dustin R.T. Sullivan will conduct a thorough investigation of the process that police used in your arrest. We will determine whether the law was upheld or if your rights were violated.
