It’s a scary, confusing and stressful time for anyone who has been charged with their first-time DWI. You’ve probably had some serious consequences from the moment you were arrested, and those can be: 

  • Permanent Mark on your criminal record 
  • Jail Time 
  • Fines 
  • Suspension of Driver’s License 
  • Increased Insurance Rates 

By hiring a professional law firm, like iLaw, our team will investigate all the charges brought against you, review all the evidence gathered by law enforcement and speak/interview with potential witnesses that can help your case. Through this process, we are able to judge the best course of action that could result in reduced charges or throwing the case out entirely. 

Some penalties that can be faced during a first time DWI can be: 

  • A fine up to $2,000 
  • A license suspended by minimum of 90 days 
  • An incarceration from three to 180 days

If an open container is found, the jail time minimum is six days, instead of three. And if you refuse to voluntarily participate in the BAC testing, the license suspension is of 180 days due to consent laws. 

We are here to get you back on your feet and navigate through these stressful moments.
