We Strive to Achieve Positive Outcomes for Informed, Empowered Clients
Many people charged with a DWI have little legal experience and do not fully understand their rights under North Carolina law. With this collection of library articles, the lawyers at Browning & Long, PLLC seek to help clients gain the information they need to move forward with confidence and peace of mind. Explore a wide range of topics related to drunk driving charges, including what to expect from the legal system, the importance of mitigating and aggravating factors, possible legal options, potential outcomes, and more.
Simply being charged with DWI in North Carolina often results in your driver’s license being revoked for a minimum of 30 days. However, we can typically get your driving privileges reinstated almost immediately. We do this by either, first, challenging this civil license revocation, or second, getting you a limited driving privilege.
Whether you realize it or not, a considerable amount of evidence exists regarding your DWI charge, much of which is vital to an effective defense of your case. We will review your court file, subpoena necessary documents, videos, and notes, and file the appropriate pretrial motions in a timely manner.
As former prosecutors, we are aware of all the potential defenses that may be available to you. We do not automatically assume you intend to plead guilty and face the harsh consequences associated with a DWI conviction. We pledge we will examine every possible defense and take your case to trial if it is in your best interest.
While it’s our goal to win every DWI case we have, it’s simply not possible for any attorney to win every time. If you are ultimately convicted of DWI, we will help you take every step possible to reduce the potential penalties, such as avoiding jail time, keeping you driving, reducing monetary costs, and more.
