The most common serious 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 severe repercussions in your personal life. Our Windsor DUI attorneys are caring and compassionate, and will help relieve the stress and anxiety that go along with the legal processes you’ll be subjected to. The following lists the potential consequences of DUI & DWAI charges:

  • Potential driver’s license revocation is a very real possibility. In addition to typical required court hearings, it’s important to request a DMV hearing to determine what your driving consequences will be. Ultimately, the DMV decides whether or not to revoke your driving privileges and for how long. Our Windsor DUI attorneys will help you navigate this tedious process, while letting you know of methods that can keep help your DMV penalties at a minimum.

  • In the event that 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 Windsor DUI Attorneys to get jail time reduced or to get alternatives to incarceration ordered instead. Potential alternatives can 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 can help you achieve the best possible deal in court; making 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 will be 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 glass of wine or a couple of beers, your BAC may 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 Windsor DUI attorneys are experienced in scrutinizing police reports to determine if procedures were indeed followed. Many times, blood and breath can be re-tested if the levels are questionable, and occasionally it can be possible to challenge the reasoning behind being initially stopped by the police. After examining the police reports, we can help determine any 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.
