Pleading guilty to a DWI/DUI charge can have consequences far more serious than a fine and jail time. A drunk driving conviction can cost you thousands of dollars in high-risk auto insurance premiums. If you are a commercial driver, a DWI/DUI conviction can cost you your career.
At the Law Offices of Steven M. Werner, P.C. in Colorado Springs, I defend DWI/DUI, driver's license revocations and all traffic-related cases. As your lawyer, I can advise you of the best tactical approach to dealing with the prosecution and the DMV based on the particular facts in your case.Defenses in DWI/DUI Cases
Even if you think you are guilty of driving while intoxicated, there may be a defense strategy that can lead to an acquittal or a reduction of charges. As your lawyer, I will determine if the police had a legal reason to pull you over. I can also challenge the results of the breathalyzer test. Even if the charges can't be dismissed, I may be able to negotiate reduced charges such as driving while impaired.
Given the potential cost of a DWI/DUI arrest, no one should plead guilty without first seeking the advice of an experienced defense lawyer.Defenses in Traffic Cases
Paying traffic tickets can have costs that go far beyond the amount of the fine. Paying tickets will result in the assessment of points on your driver's license. If you get too many points, your auto insurance rates can go up and your driver's license can be suspended.
As your lawyer, I can negotiate with prosecutors to reduce a traffic violation to a less serious offense, such as speeding to an equipment violation.
I represent people charged with all types of traffic violations, including:
- Reckless driving
- Driving after revocation
- Driving without insurance
- Vehicular assault
- Vehicular homicide
