Navigating DWI Charges in Louisiana

If you have been arrested in Louisiana for DWI, your Baton Rouge DWI attorney needs to be resolute in your defense, but agile enough to find the best solution to your problem.

Don't even think about trying to "sort this out for yourself." Even if you think you can be as effective in your own defense as an experienced lawyer, you might not realize what you are up against. The police officer may pretend to be a regular guy or gal, but in this situation he or she has only one role, and that is to bring the full force of the law and its penalties upon you. Prosecutors, too, do not make their careers by being soft.

The penalties could include fines, license suspension, community service, mandatory treatment, or jail time. If this is not your first charge, the sanctions are more harsh with each time. At some point it becomes a felony charge.

Any conviction for DUI, felony or misdemeanor can give you a criminal record that potential employers, landlords and educational institutions can access. Let us help you prevent conviction and a record.
