DWI Charges

Given that a DWI is the most serious criminal charge that most people are ever likely to face, and the fact that the consequences of failing to fight this charge vigorously can have a negative effect for years to come, it is critical that you secure legal representation from a lawyer who has the skill and experience necessary to help you mount an effective defense.

At the law office of James M. Wagman, Attorney at Law, I have been serving the needs of people who are facing DWI charges for more than 35 years. I am attorney James Wagman, and I know the impact DWI charges can have on someone’s life. These charges need to be taken seriously, and you need to begin working to defend yourself right away after being charged.

Take A Stand Now To Protect Your Finances In The Future

What many people fail to consider when debating how to approach defending against DWI charges are the long-term costs. Your insurance costs are likely to be more expensive as the result of a DWI conviction. More importantly, with a DWI conviction on your record, the penalties for any future DWI convictions will be dramatically more severe. The penalties increase for every successive DWI that occurs within a certain number of years.

I offer exceptional DWI representation to those facing such specific charges as:

  • Aggravated DWI offenses — Various factors such as high blood alcohol content (0.18 or greater BAC) can lead to the more severe penalties of an aggravated DWI charge.
  • DWAI drug offenses — Drug-related DWAI charges are as serious as any other DWI charge.
  • Felony DWI offenses — Felony charges can carry prison as part of the sentence.
  • Underage DW offenses — Unlike adult DWI, a BAC of .02 is a sufficient basis for an underage DWI conviction.

What Happens After Arrest For DWI?

For most people, the process that follows an arrest for DWI is a mystery. Not only do most people not know anything about it before their arrest, few learn anything more about the process immediately following their arrest. The police do not necessarily see it as their duty to educate you.

Your familiarity with the DWI process is not the most important thing after an arrest. What is important is that you secure the representation of an attorney who does know the process and who has the experience and skill to be able to help you secure the best possible resolution to your case.
