A DWI Carries Hefty Penalties — Protect Your Rights
A drunk driving conviction does more than just place a mark on your criminal record. An individual who has been charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) or operating under the influence (OUI) can face a driver’s license suspension, driver’s license revocation, steep fines and potential for incarceration depending on the severity of the charge.
At Elias Law Offices, our York County DWI and OUI attorneys of Elias Law Offices help protect individuals who have been charged with criminal offenses throughout Maine. They firmly believe their clients deserve to be treated as people rather than as files on a desk. The legal issues they face in the criminal justice system can change their lives dramatically, which is why we remain dedicated at all times to upholding their rights and protecting their futures.
Your Legal Advocates Against Drunk Driving Charges
When you are charged with a DWI or OUI, you face consequences in two distinct areas: within the criminal justice system and with the Department of the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (DMV). In fact, you could be found not guilty of a DWI and still end up with your driver’s license suspended if you do not take steps to retain your driving privileges.
If you have been pulled over, work with an experienced lawyer at our firm as soon as possible to prevent an automatic license suspension with the DMV. We strive to have charges dropped completely, have charges reduced and, if you are convicted, to avoid the most severe of the possible collateral consequences that could affect you for years to come.
