With more than 55 years of combined experience representing DWI clients, we can discuss how to pursue your most favorable outcome, which could include getting the charge reduced or thrown out altogether.

How We Approach Drunk Or Drugged Driving Cases

Driving while intoxicated or under the influence is known as several acronyms: OWI, DUI, DWI and OVWI. Any of these charges can change life’s conveniences – and cost a lot of money. Indiana laws are quite strict with severe penalties. But that doesn’t mean you are guilty. Sometimes an officer administers a breath test incorrectly, neglects to give you your Miranda rights or makes another error in your arrest. If an error is made during your arrest, we can find it and defend your rights.

At our Terre Haute law practice, we have represented numerous good people against drunk driving charges. Our cases include these types of arrests:

  • OWIs, DUIs, DWIs and OVWIs
  • Drug-related DUIs
  • Boating while intoxicated charges
  • Multiple offenses
  • Misdemeanors and felony charges

If you were stopped in or around Vigo County while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or for any other criminal charge, you need the personalized, strategic defense of our experienced and committed DWI attorneys. We can argue for you and point out factors that others might not see. Contact the firm for staunch representation now.
