DWI/DUI Defense Attorney Louisiana

Louisiana driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving while under the influence (DUI) laws in Louisiana are strictly enforced; a conviction can result in loss of your driver’s license, hefty fines, incarceration and a criminal record, which can impact your livelihood for years.  If you’ve been stopped at a checkpoint and charged with a DWI/DUI offense, you need to speak with one of our attorneys who have years of experience in handling DWI cases throughout Louisiana.

Specific penalties for DWI offenses increase dramatically with each subsequent conviction.  If you’re convicted for a second time, you are subject to a prolonged jail sentence and loss of driver’s license for up to a year.  A third conviction can result in a prison sentence of up to 5 years, loss of driving privileges for 2 and seizure of your car.  A 4th conviction will have even more severe consequences including up to a 30-year prison sentence.

Regardless of the number of convictions on your record, our firm will work with you to formulate a strategy to attain the best possible outcome for your case.  There are various circumstances that can impact your case such as whether you’ve had prior offenses in the last 10 years, to what extent your blood alcohol content (BAC) exceeded the legal threshold, whether you were underage or a minor, the existence of minor passenger and whether you have a commercial license.

Depending on the specifics of your case, our attorneys may recommend negotiating a favorable plea bargain.  While some prosecutors are reluctant to allow a plea bargain we will work diligently to convince the prosecutor that you deserve leniency.  Once the prosecutor agrees to a plea bargain, you may plead guilty to a lesser charge, typically for reckless driving.  While the plea deal will have less onerous consequences, it may still result in loss of your driver’s license and other penalties, though they would be less than what you would have been subjected to if you were prosecuted for DWI.

Given the harshness of the penalties you may face for DWI, you should not entrust your case to just any attorney.  Our firm has represented countless individuals in Louisiana facing DWI charges and can aggressively represent you to obtain the best possible result.  Contact the J.
