DUI/DWI/Drunk Driving: Penalties And Defense Strategies

You've been pulled over, charged with DUI/DWI, and now face the possibility of a criminal conviction on your record. What's next? Do you have rights? What can you do to protect your future? Do you need an attorney? These are all important questions. The first step to take is to contact an attorney. An attorney can help you through the legal process and find a solution that works best for you.

At Magee, Zeringue & Richardson, Attorneys at Law, we offer significant experience helping people who face drunk driving charges. We are familiar with the penalties of drunk driving and will work hard to make sure that a conviction does not prevent you from getting a specific job, ability to get housing, a student loan, or a similar situation in the future.

What Are The Penalties For Drunk Driving?

The biggest thing a defense lawyer can help with is navigating the legal process after a DUI/DWI charge. At Magee, Zeringue & Richardson, Attorneys at Law, we can help explain what to expect and what the potential consequences are for drunk driving. We handle issues involving:

  • Suspended licenses
  • Revoked licenses
  • Multiple DUIs/DWIs

Our DUI/DWI defense attorneys will work to avoid jail time at all costs. If you are a repeat offender in Louisiana, we will work to keep a second or third conviction from your record.

Time Is Of The Essence

Time is important in DUI/DWI cases. The sooner you can contact a lawyer, the better. If you miss deadlines for your case, it can be detrimental to the outcome of the situation. As soon as you retain our services, we will start working on your defense.
