Asheville Lawyers For Multiple DWI Offenses
If you have been charged with DWI and have prior convictions on your record, it is important to consult with an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible. The penalties you face if convicted are harsh, including thousands of dollars in fines, months in prison and years long driver’s license suspension.
With the emphasis on cracking down on DWIs, defending these cases has become increasingly more complicated and more difficult. You need an attorney who understands the tests and tools used by law enforcement, understands the law, and can effectively present your case. At Devereux & Banzhoff, PLLC, our lawyers use a systematic approach to evaluate every aspect of your case.
We provide strong DWI defense representation to clients in Asheville and throughout surrounding North Carolina communities.
Driver’s License Considerations
If convicted of a second DWI in North Carolina, your driver’s license will likely be suspended for one year. However, if it is your second offense in less than three years, the suspension period may be up to four years.
When your driver’s license is reinstated, you must install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. This instrument works like a Breathalyzer and requires you to blow below a programmed limit before you can start the car.
Second and subsequent offenses also require that you attend alcohol safety course as well as community service. Reinstatement of your driver’s license will only come after you have completed these programs.
