DWI Defense In Arkansas
Drunk driving is a serious offense that can dramatically affect your lifestyle and future. The attorneys at Files & Brasuell, PLLC, in Little Rock are dedicated to protecting your rights if you are suspected of driving under the influence.
What To Do If You Are Pulled Over On Suspicion Of DWI
You have rights if you are suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It is important to contact our law firm right away if you have been arrested on suspicion of DWI. We can protect your rights and guide you through the criminal defense process.
Field Sobriety And The Breathalyzer Test
You have the right to refuse to perform a field sobriety test. Breathalyzer test results will be considered evidence of intoxication so to protect yourself from a DWI conviction, it may be in your best interests to refuse a Breathalyzer test as well. If you do refuse, however, your license will be suspended for six months.
If you do take a Breathalyzer test, you have the right to have a second test performed at your own expense. The police are required to provide reasonable assistance to have this second test (blood or urine) performed.
Our defense lawyers can make sure your rights were not violated before or during the traffic stop.
DWI Penalties And The Impact On Your Driving Privileges
Penalties for DWI convictions vary in Arkansas. In addition to criminal charges and punishments, your driver’s license will be suspended immediately after being arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. To see a full list of the criminal penalties and license suspensions, visit our DWI Penalties page.
Depending on your specific situation and DWI offense, you may qualify for a 30-day driving permit. The permit will expire 30 days from the date of your arrest so it is vital to request a hearing within seven days to protect your driving privileges. Our lawyers have decades of experience helping individuals proactively address DWI charges. We focus on getting you the best resolution so you can move forward with your life.
