Serious Penalties

A Driving While Impaired (DWI) or Driving Under the Influence (DUI) conviction has penalties that could have a serious impact on your life. License suspension, jail time, probation, fines, increased insurance costs, and even loss of employment are all potential consequences of a DWI.

In North Carolina, when an individual has been charged with DWI, his or her license is automatically suspended for 30 days. After 10 days, an individual may be able to regain limited driving privileges for the final 20 days of the 30-day period. After 30 days, individuals can pay a fee for license reinstatement until the case is resolved. However, if you are found guilty, especially if this is not your first offense, you have the potential to lose your driver's license for an extended period of time. You need a committed advocate to relentlessly and aggressively defend you throughout every stage of the process. We can help.
