If you’ve been charged with a DUI, you need to find a lawyer quick to protect your driving privileges! Craig M. Divine at Divine Law Office, LLC handles several different charges you may need to have a defense attorney hired for. We’ll discuss a couple between the states of Kansas and Missouri in the counties of Jackson, Johnson, Wyandotte, Clay, and Platte. Alcohol related driving offenses are very time sensitive, and you must move quickly to get a request in for an administrative review hearing to keep yourself on the road. Find a lawyer is the first thing you need to do! Craig has extensive experience in Missouri and Kansas with the following:
- DUI: also known as driving under the influence, this covers drunk driving as well as driving while using illicit drugs. Sometimes this can include prescription medication – even if prescribed by a doctor.
- DWI: otherwise known as driving while intoxicated. This is the most common alcohol related offense and most often charged when drinking and driving. The legal limit in both Kansas and Missouri is .08 – not much at all! Most don’t even feel drunk at this level.
- DWS: driving while suspended; often from forgetting to pay a traffic ticket or has received one of the former two charged and failed to request a review. Pleading guilty to this will result in the loss of driving privileges (loss of license) for 1 year and can lead to felony charges.
- Chemical refusals: if you’re stopped with suspicion of DUI/DWI and you refuse, you can have a lengthy license suspension. However, if you find a lawyer you can reduce or eliminate any suspension from a refusal.
Often the first step once you’ve been charged with a DUI/DWI is to find a lawyer to represent you. Once you’ve done that you will have an administrative license hearing where you will fight to keep your license. Find a lawyer like Craig M.
