Important Questions to Consider When Charged with a DWI

“My License was seized by the police – Is my license suspended? Do I have to wait a 30-day period in order to drive? Am I eligible for a pre-trial driving privilege? Can I drive to my place of work? Can I drop my kids off at school? If I’m convicted, will I lose the right to drive for a year?”

These are some of the questions we are asked by DWI clients. Considering that every case is different, you will need the right information based on the facts of your case.

MAYBE.

Was I Legally Arrested for DWI?

MAYBE. A police officer must establish “Probable Cause” (or “PC”) before arresting a driver. Probable Cause is established by roadside sobriety test results and observations of the driver’s mannerisms and behavior before, during and sometimes after the DWI investigation. PC is usually contested at trial. A judge must conclude that Probable Cause existed at the time of arrest, or the case will be dismissed.
