Defending people charged with Driving While Impaired (DWI/DUI) constitutes the largest part of McCartan Law’s representation. We encourage all potential clients to take their time and ask questions before choosing an attorney.
Creative strategies are particularly necessary in DWI defenses, as the vast majority of the evidence used against an individual is tendered by trained witnesses (police officers and chemical analysts).
Simply being charged with DWI and having a Blood Alcohol Content of .08 does NOT make one guilty of the offense; it is the burden of the State to prove the elements of the offense and to validate the process by which the investigation was conducted.
While penalties related to a DWI conviction can be harsh, in many circumstances, they can be mitigated.
