As one of Pender County’s top DWI attorney’s, I know how scary and expensive it can be to receive charges for DWI (driving while impaired), also known as DUI (driving under the influence). Even at the lowest level of punishment, a North Carolina DWI / DUI conviction can lead to jail time, thousands in fees and court costs, and the loss of your ability to drive. Additionally, insurance companies, potential employers, and others often use a DWI conviction against you for years to come. This site is dedicated to giving you all of the information you need to move forward successfully after being charged with a DWI in North Carolina.

It’s a mistake to plead guilty without a local expert DWI attorney on your side, and it is an even larger mistake to face a DWI charge on your own. Feel free to use this site as a resource, check out our FAQs, and if you need any assistance at all, I would be happy to set up a free consultation for an honest assessment of your case. I successfully defend clients charged with DWI each and every day, and my record at the Pender Country Courthouse speaks for itself. If you have questions or need help, you can always call (910) 256-8044 or fill out our contact form.


Do I Need a DWI Lawyer or Can I Represent Myself?

The Short Answer Is That You Should Always Have a Good DWI Attorney in Your Corner If You Are Charged With DWI.

Hire me, hire someone else, or, if you can’t afford one, ask for an attorney to be appointed to you. The worst mistake you could possibly make in a DWI is to try to handle it yourself. Find a professional who knows the area, the officers, and the judges. Do not gamble with your freedom.

There are a huge number of legalities that can be a factor when evaluating DUI/DWI cases. You should have a lawyer who knows the best path forward without compromise.
