The most common driving offenses that an average person will be charged with are a DUI or a DWAI . A conviction of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while ability impaired (DWAI) can have a severe impact on many aspects of your life. Having Northern Colorado DUI attorneys who actually care will help alleviate your stress and anxiety throughout your entire court process. The following lists the potential consequences of DUI & DWAI charges.

  • The potential revocation of your driver’s license. In addition to the standard required court dates, it’s imperative that you request a DMV hearing in order to find out how extensive the consequences will be. Ultimately, the DMV will determine whether or not to revoke your driving privileges and, if so, for just how long. Our Northern Colorado DUI attorneys will assist in navigating this process and direct you on ways to keep your DMV penalties to a minimum.

  • If you are convicted, jail time is a major possibility; especially if you were caught with a high blood alcohol content (BAC) when you were pulled over. Many times our Northern Colorado DUI Attorneys can help get your jail time reduced or look at alternatives to incarceration, such as work release, home detention, and monitored probation.

  • DUI/DWAI fines and fees can reach over $10,000 when all is said and done. These fees include alcohol education courses, therapy, community service, and jail fees. We’ll assist you in achieving the best deal in court, so that 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 is mandatory barring a BAC is above a .20. It’s always important to consider that even if you feel sober enough to drive after having a simple glass of wine or a couple of beers, your BAC may be above the legal limit. Law enforcement legally mandated to follow specific procedures when a blood/breath test, or roadside evaluation is performed. Our Northern Colorado DUI attorneys have significant experience in closely scrutinizing police reports to check if procedures were followed. Oftentimes, blood and breath can be re-tested if the levels are questionable, and on occasion it’s possible to challenge the reasoning behind being stopped by the police in general. After combing through your police reports, we will determine any potential penalties you may face, and discuss 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.
