Every DUI Case Is Unique, And A Lawyer’s Guidance Can Help
Drinking and driving offenses not only carry hefty fines, but can also end up being on your criminal record for life if you do not have an attorney representing your interests after you are first charged. Carrico Law Offices LC represents men and women throughout the Charleston area facing first-time and repeat DUI/DWI charges. We offer our clients aggressive legal representation, personalized attention and advocacy.
It is important to remember that only experienced lawyers understand all aspects of a DUI charge. Our attorneys provide advice on issues involving:
- Your DUI stop leading to the arrest and charges
- Breathalyzer and blood tests
- Breath test refusal
- Search and seizure issues
First-Time DUI Charges And Deferment Program
If you face a first-time offense and your DUI is not an aggravated offense, you may be entitled to a deferment program in West Virginia. The program is helpful in the sense that it qualifies you for an expungement of your criminal record at the end of the program. There are specific issues involving license suspension and your DUI, so it is important you talk to an attorney to learn more about whether this program is right for you.
Repeat DUI Offenses
The consequences increase significantly for repeat DUI offenses, especially if the offense is aggravated. For instance, a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .15 or higher is considered an aggravated offense. At Carrico Law Offices LC, we have a track record handling all types of DUI cases, including aggravated DUI and repeat DUI.
