Many people believe a DWI is a “traffic matter” simply because it involves a vehicle. The truth is that DWIs are serious criminal offenses that can carry significant penalties and collateral consequences, including jail time. Should a person be charged with a third DWI in their lifetime, they will be facing a felony charge. The laws, scientific and psuedo-scientific evidence used in the prosecution of DWIs, are ever-changing. An attorney needs to have specialized knowledge and experience to properly defend someone accused of driving while intoxicated. The attorneys at James Law Group have that experience and ability. Call us today if you have been accused of a DWI.
