The DWI Process

There are a number of possible ways to fight your legal battle. The initial stop by the police, for instance. While the police can pull you over for a number of reasons, they cannot just pull you over on a whim. The reason has to be defined and fall within certain parameters. If it does not, all the evidence obtained in the stop may be inadmissible.

The Sobriety Test(s)

The officer can also be put on the spot when describing the results of your field sobriety test. There have been plenty of instances where the officer’s testimony – aided by a good defense attorney – demonstrated the real issues with field sobriety tests as a valid form of evidence. This has resulted in wins for DWI clients.

Even the blood alcohol test can be called into question. The test must be administered in a certain way for it to be considered reliable evidence.

If you have been arrested or charged with a DWI, please contact Attorney Nicholas Howie immediately to find out what your options are. The time to start fighting your legal battle is now.

The Trial

The last step in your DWI case is the trial. I advise you to fight your case to the end. A trial allows you to thoroughly question the   arresting office as well as any other witnesses to your DWI. It also allows you to call your own witnesses. You can even call friends and family that were with you prior to your arrest and can testify that you were not intoxicated. This is your last chance to prove your innocence.
Of course you can always take a plea bargain and there are some cases where a plea is the appropriate step. However, you need an experienced DWI attorney to evaluate your case and advise you as to the proper step to take.


If you are found guilty at your DWI trial or you take a Plea you will likely face any or all of the following penalties:
  • Loss of License
  • Fines
  • Jail Time
