DUI / DWI
 

DWI is a serious offense with potentially grave consequences.  North Carolina has some of the strictest laws in the United States when it comes to driving while impaired.  It most commonly refers to when you are driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or greater, but applies to other controlled substances as well. The penalties for a DWI vary based on what your blood alcohol content (BAC) level was at the time, whether any other infractions were committed, and if you are a first time offender. Penalties can range from a suspended license and a fine to jail time or a combination of both.  For your convenience, levels of punishment are listed below.

If you have recently gotten a DWI, we can help. If you are a first time offender you may be able to avoid jail time. You probably already know that in North Carolina, your license is automatically suspended for 30 days if you are simply charged with a DWI.   If you have questions about DWI call us to set up a free consultation.
