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.

Our family was in need of a lawyer twice in the past 5 years. Both times we called upon Schwartz and Waible Law Firm. They worked very hard and kept us informed every step of the way. Helped understand the ins and the outs of the law. We were very pleased with the out come of both cases. Hopefully won’t need further need, but if we are won’t hesitate to call upon this law firm. So if you are looking for a Law Firm that works as a team, are caring about their clients, and will do the best job possible you may want to call upon Schwartz and Waible. Thank you so much for your help. Sharon and Jim, January, 2011 We welcome this opportunity to extol Kirk Waible, one of the finest lawyers we’ve ever known. Our background is in education—we are retired after long careers of teaching classes from kindergarten through graduate school. During the past year (2010), Kirk represented someone very close to us. In a difficult, often convoluted, case, Kirk cut right through the mazes of the legal system to present his client’s defense so effectively that the outcome was far more successful than we had ever hoped. We found Kirk to be personable, smart, thorough, accessible, and well-versed in the law. Years ago, I (Jim) worked at length for a state legislature and dealt with many, many lawyers on a daily basis. Some of them were brilliant in their profession. But I feel Kirk stands head and shoulders above even the best of them. We would engage him in an instant to represent us in any legal matter.

I retained Jeff Schwartz of Schwartz & Waible after I was charged with a felony. Jeff was caring, professional, detail-oriented, and thorough in how he handled my case. He has a strong knowledge of criminal law and knows the Larimer County court system and its players well. He was able to negotiate the best possible plea deal for me, and I am grateful for his representation. I highly recommend Schwartz & Waible’s services.
