How to Handle a DWI in New Hanover and Pender Counties

Getting arrested and convicted of DWI—driving while intoxicated—in North Carolina is both scary and costly. Not only can you expect to spend hundreds in court costs, but these convictions often carry jail time and loss of driving privileges for a period of time.

It’s never a good idea to handle a DWI case on your own, especially with such high stakes. This kind of conviction is something that will follow you for the rest of your life, with it held against you by auto insurers and potential employers for years to come.

Never make the mistake of pleading guilty to a DWI charge without an experienced lawyer by your side. Putting your future at risk is never worth the cost of a lawyer
