DUI & DWAI

On average, The most common driving offense for a person to be charged with is a DUI or a DWAI . A conviction of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while ability impaired (DWAI) can have a deep impact on your personal life. Our Loveland DUI attorneys are caring and compassionate, and can help lower the stress and anxiety that comes with the legal processes you will be subjected to. The following lists the potential consequences of DUI & DWAI charges.

  • Potential driver’s license revocation. In addition to the standard required court hearings, it’s important to request a DMV hearing that will determine what your driving consequences will be. Ultimately, the DMV will decide whether or not to revoke your driving privileges and for how long. Our Loveland DUI attorneys will assist you in navigating this tedious process, while informing you of methods that can keep help your DMV penalties to a minimum.

  • If you are convicted, jail time is a strong possibility–especially if you had an extremely high blood alcohol content (BAC) when you were pulled over. It’s not unusual for our Loveland DUI Attorneys to get jail time reduced or to get alternatives to incarceration ordered instead. Potential alternatives include work release, home detention, and monitored probation.

  • DUI/DWAI fines and fees can exceed $10,000. These fees include alcohol education courses, therapy, community service, and jail fees. We’ll help you achieve the best possible deal in court; rendering your financial burden as low as possible.

The presumptive level of intoxication for DWAI is .05 in the state of Colorado, with the presumptive level of intoxication for a DUI being .08 and above. Jail time is mandatory given a BAC is above a .20. It’s always important that you consider that even if you feel sober enough to drive after a simple glass of wine or a couple of beers, your BAC can very well 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 Loveland DUI attorneys are experts in scrutinizing police reports to determine if proper procedures were indeed followed. Many times, blood and breath can be re-tested if the levels are questionable, and occasionally it’s possible to challenge the reasoning behind being initially stopped by the police. After closely examining your police reports, we can determine potential penalties you may face, and discuss with you your options in order to achieve the best possible outcome.
