DUI & DWAI

The most common driving offense that the average person will be charged with are is a DUI or a DWAI . A conviction of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while ability impaired (DWAI) can have a deeply impact many facets of your personal life. Having Greeley DUI attorneys who are caring and compassionate can help alleviate the stress and anxiety stemming from the court process you will be subjected to. The following lists the potential consequences of DUI & DWAI charges.

  • Possible driver’s license revocation. In addition to the standard required court hearings, it’s important that you request a DMV hearing in order to determine what your driving consequences will be. Ultimately, the DMV determines whether or not to revoke your driving privileges and, if so, for how long. Our Greeley DUI attorneys assist in navigating this process, while directing you on methods that can keep your DMV penalties to a minimum.

  • If you are convicted, jail time is a distinct possibility; especially if you had a high blood alcohol content (BAC) when you were pulled over. It’s not unusual for our Greeley DUI Attorneys to be able to get your jail time reduced or alternatives to incarceration ordered instead. These potential alternatives include work release, home detention, and monitored probation.

  • DUI/DWAI fines and fees can exceed $10,000 when all is said and done. These fees include alcohol education courses, therapy, community service, and jail fees. We can help you to achieve the best possible deal in court; rendering your financial burden is as minimal as possible.

The presumptive level of intoxication for DWAI is .05 in the state of Colorado, while  the presumptive level of intoxication for a DUI is .08 and above. Jail time will be mandatory barring a BAC is above a .20. Always consider that even if you feel sober enough to drive after a simple glass of wine or a couple of beers, your BAC may be above the legal limit. Law enforcement is legally mandated to follow specific procedures when a blood/breath test, or roadside evaluation is performed. Our Greeley DUI attorneys are experts in closely scrutinizing police reports to ensure that proper procedures were followed. Oftentimes, blood and breath can be re-tested if the levels are questionable, and on occasion it is possible to challenge the reasoning behind being stopped by the police in the first place. After combing through your police reports, we will determine any potential penalties you may face, and discuss with you your options in order to achieve the best possible outcome.
