One Mistake Shouldn't Destroy Your Future
A conviction for a drunk driving offense in Mississippi can have a devastating impact on your life. In addition to the immediate penalties you can suffer, including fines, jail time and the loss of your driver's license, it could also hurt your ability to obtain certain professional licenses and interfere with your employment opportunities.
For many people, the arrest for a drunk driving offense is their first ever encounter with the law. You may not understand all your rights, and the police are usually of little help in clarifying them. Talk to a criminal defense lawyer whose only focus is protecting your rights in these matters. If you are facing charges for any type of drunk driving offense, talk to the Meridian DWI/DUI attorneys at Witherspoon & Compton, LLC.
Laurel Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys
When you hire our firm, we conduct a complete investigation of your case, looking for any opportunity to have improperly obtained evidence thrown out. We have been successful in previous cases challenging evidence based on the validity of the initial traffic stop, the accuracy of the field sobriety and blood alcohol tests, Miranda rights issues, and other considerations.
We can also represent you in administrative hearings. This is a separate proceeding that determines the status of your driving privileges after a DWI/DUI arrest or if you refuse a breath test. You only have 10 days from the date of your Notice to request a hearing on the matter. If you miss this deadline, an automatic license suspension will take effect. We will present the strongest possible argument for your driving privileges to remain intact. If the suspension is upheld for any reason, we can help you with the process of possibly obtaining a hardship license.
