DWI

What's a DWI?

A DWI (Short for Driving While Impaired) is a misdemeanor drinking and driving offense where your blood alcohol content (BAC) registers at either .06 or .07. If your BAC registers above .07, you are considered to be Driving Under the Influence (DUI), which carries stiffer legal penalties than a DWI. See our page on DUI.

It is important to note that a drunk driving arrest does not mean automatic conviction and punishment. We will analyze and challenge every aspect of your case to build an effective defense.

How do we evaluate your case?

We utilize our extensive experience as former prosecutors to analyze what happened when you were pulled over and arrested and whether your rights were violated. Generally, here are some of the questions we will ask:

  • Did you take any Standard Field Sobriety Tests (SFST)? Sabah is a certified instructor of SFST and can teach police officers how to perform them properly. He will examine whether or not they were correctly administered and whether the officer was properly trained.  If not, your case could be dismissed.
  • Did you agree to take a breath test or blood test?
  • Was the Intoxilyzer machine working properly?
  • Was the blood properly drawn and preserved? If not, your case could be dismissed on any number of issues that may arise.

Will my license be revoked?

An arrest for DWI does not automatically trigger a license revocation, however there may be other conditions (like refusal to submit to a field sobriety test or if you are under 21) specific to your case that may trigger a revocation. You must request a DPS hearing within (15) days of the date of the arrest to contest a revocation, so we recommend that you contact a lawyer immediately following your arrest to ensure that your rights are preserved. See our page on Driver's Licenses for more information.
