A charge of driving while impaired (DWI, sometimes referred to as “DUI” or “drunk driving”) is one of the most serious misdemeanors in North Carolina. Its impact on your life may include huge fines, skyrocketing insurance costs, an ignition interlock device (IID), a suspended or revoked license, and even jail time. If you caused a fatal accident while impaired by drugs or alcohol, you face felony DWI charges.
If negotiations for a dismissal or lesser charge fail, we use our knowledge of North Carolina DWI laws and trial experience to fight your DWI charges at trial. We are prepared to fight every step of the state’s DWI case by:
- Challenging the law enforcement officer’s probable cause to stop your vehicle, challenging the legality of DWI checkpoints
- Indicating the flaws in the highly subjective field sobriety tests
- Contesting the legality of your arrest and any search of you or your car
- Explaining the unreliability of the chemical test to which you were subjected
If you are charged as a repeat DWI offender, we explore the the priors conviction and inform you in a timely manner what impact this may have on your current DWI.
Each of these challenges to the prosecution’s case is complex and requires an experienced and aggressive defense attorney with the legal and practical knowledge needed to prevail. The Law Offices of Ames Chamberlin is dedicated solely to criminal defense, and we have a proven track record of successfully contesting the state’s evidence in DWI cases.
DMV Hearings in Guilford County, North Carolina
Any person arrested for DWI faces an automatic civil revocation of the driver’s license if charged with driving with a blood or breath alcohol level of .08 or if they refused a blood or breath alcohol test. We can petition the court on your behalf for a pretrial “limited driving privilege.” We will also seek a limited driving privilege, if you are eligible, if you are convicted of the offenses of Driving While Impaired.
The DMV has exclusive jurisdiction over driver license issues in North Carolina. Should you get a DWI conviction in another state, the Driver License Compact between states mandates that the North Carolina DMV receive notice of the conviction. You are entitled to a hearing at the North Carolina DMV regarding any suspension it wishes to impose as a result of that out-of-state DWI conviction. A skilled attorney can advise you appropriately and may assist you in obtaining a limited driving privilege if your license is suspended in North Caroline based on a DWI conviction out of state.
