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.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Our son was in need of representation, and we considered doing things on our own; but since we were unfamiliar with the law and procedures involved to resolve the issue, we contacted Schwartz and Waible. It was the best decision we could have made. The charges our son faced were unwarranted, and since the attorney succeeded in persuading the opposition to fairly evaluate the situation, we were able to sleep at night; and ultimately, the charges were dismissed. I give my highest recommendation for the law firm. We couldn’t be more pleased with their services and the outcome as a result.

I would refer Schwartz & Waible as attorneys to anyone that is in need. They take the time to make sure that you know what the process of the courts are and are always willing to answer any question no matter how big or small it may be. They are very kind and understanding. Any time I needed to check in to see where our case was going, I always got a returned call back in a timely manner. They are some of the good guys to have in your corner. Thanks Schwartz & Waible for holding my hand through everything we went through the summer of 2010.
