Why DWI Defense?

DWI is one of the hottest issues of today. Legislators continue to change the laws to make the streets safer. While we do not condone drinking and driving, the rights of individuals charged with this crime need to be protected. We need to remind the court system that a person in the United States is still deemed to be innocent until proven guilty. We also help ensure that law enforcement uses proper procedures to stop and/or charge individuals. Without this protection, it would be a short step to the reduction of our Constitutional protections.
