Fighting a DWI/OWI Charge

Can I fight my DWI charge?

As a criminal defense attorney, I am trained to help you fight your DWI charge.  However, it’s not helpful to fight a charge that is a good case, and I’m focused on finding how the prosecutor has a bad case to make your charge get reduced or go away.


In the Lafayette area, I’ve successfully defended the following DWI cases:


- When the driver took the breathalyzer test and had a BAC of .07%, and the driver looked polite and coherent on video, I was able to fight that case.

- When the driver did not take the breathalyzer test, cooperated fully with officers who were investigating his car accident, and politely refused the field sobriety testing the officers tried to conduct, I was able to fight that case.

- When the driver took the breathalyzer test and had a BAC of 0.00%, but took a drug screen and tested  positive for prescription antidepressants, and the driver’s doctor was willing to speak with the prosecutor before trial and explain that he (the doctor) cleared the driver to drive a motor vehicle, I was able to fight that case.

- When the driver took the breathalyzer test and had a BAC of 0.00%, and took a drug screen and tested negative, I was able to fight that case.


I scrupulously analyze every OWI case I have, and if there is not a good way to “fight” the case, that’s ok.  The legislature has made minimum mandatory sentencing on OWI cases, so I am able to guide my clients through what to expect.
