Anyone can get a DWI – Sanjay Minocha can help.
One of the most common criminal charges, and one that can happen to anybody, is Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). When we hear about a friend or colleague getting arrested for DWI, many of us say to ourselves, “There, but for the grace of God, go I.” If you or a loved one are unlucky enough to have gotten arrested for DWI, Sanjay Minocha can help.
The consequences of a DWI conviction are severe.
The punishment for DWI can include jail time, probation, fines and court costs, community service, and a possible license suspension. But these short term penalties are nothing compared to the long term costs of a DWI conviction, including:
- losing or not being able to land certain jobs;
- huge increases in your auto insurance;
- greater cost of future health insurance and life insurance; and
- carrying a stigma that you will have to disclose for the rest of your life.
Because of these harsh consequences, every DWI case is worth fighting.
A good criminal defense attorney can put you in a position to beat DWI charges, even against odds that seem insurmountable, including cases with blood or breath tests, accidents, admissions, or other bad evidence. This is not to say that a great attorney will win every DWI case. But there are many means of attacking a DWI case.
Some DWI cases are dismissed because of procedural issues before trial. Sometimes cops violated a defendant’s constitutional rights during the stop, in which case the DWI evidence may be suppressed. Some DWI cases are ultimately won at trial because a good attorney can show reasonable doubt regarding whether the defendant was intoxicated.
All of these defenses are complicated and require a knowledgeable and dedicated criminal defense attorney. Sanjay Minocha understands the many avenues to defeat a DWI case and can help you or your loved one dealing with DWI charges.
Time is of the essence in a DWI case!
Administrative license revocation (ALR) (i.e., driver’s license suspension) deadlines start running immediately and don’t get put on hold while you wait for your court date. You have only 15 days to request an ALR hearing to contest the suspension. With the help of an attorney, you may be able to prevent a driver’s license suspension at the hearing.
