Driving while impaired does not always mean you are under the influence of alcohol. In some cases, prescription drugs can result in your being cited for a DWI in North Carolina. There are also certain medical conditions that can result in law enforcement officers deciding you are driving impaired when this is not the case.
Conviction in a DWI case is not an option if you work for a government contractor, or work in certain other professions including truck drivers, school bus drivers, or taxicab and ride-share drivers. In fact, a conviction can mean your livelihood is at stake. When you consider these risks, along with fines, points against your driving record, and the potential of having to attend certain classes you cannot afford to take chances. Therefore, you must work with a Pitt County, North Carolina DWI attorney who has experience handling these types of cases.
We have experience representing defendants in DWI cases across the area. We will review the circumstances of the traffic stop, field sobriety test usages, and the use of breathalyzer or other tests. We understand people make mistakes, and law enforcement officers are as likely to make mistakes as anyone else. Field sobriety tests and breathalyzer tests are imperfect as well so do not make the mistake of thinking a failed test means certain conviction.
Fortunately, when you work with us, you will have an attorney on your side who has experience with DWI trials. We are not afraid to fight for a verdict that benefits our clients. Contact JC Law today if you are facing a DWI charge and let us help you fight back.
