Since you are reading this, you or a loved one may be in serious trouble. Regardless of test results, refusals or record,


Here are the immediate steps I routinely take in DWI cases.

1) Contact a Judge immediately to set bail that can get an accused driver released from custody fast.

2) For most accused of a DWI in some counties, promptly get your driver's license and license plates reinstated without a reinstatement fee, ignition interlock, whiskey plates or other restrictions, while your case is pending.

3) Treating every case with the skill of 30-plus years in defending DWI cases. One of the many unsolicited thank-you notes from clients says: "You have made a really bad situation for me so much better by handling my case with such professionalism and care."
