Charlotte DWI Defense Attorneys

Protect Your License and Insurance Rate

For each subsequent DUI/DWI and traffic violation conviction you receive, the penalties increase. You face a possible fine, jail time, probation, and the loss of your license. With recent changes in North Carolina drunk driving laws, it is even more important to contact a lawyer at Baucom, Claytor, Benton, Morgan & Wood for an initial consultation.

DUI/DWI Defense

We defend against first, second, or multiple drunk driving and traffic charges. Our firm, located in Charlotte, North Carolina, focuses on keeping your driving record clear of any conviction.

Besides the fine and jail sentence, a DUI/DWI conviction will increase your insurance rate and may affect your employment. Under North Carolina's habitual offenders law, the state may charge you with a felony if you caused an accident or have multiple convictions on your record.

The defense against a DUI/DWI is complicated and requires the assistance of a knowledgeable attorney. At our firm, our attorneys stay current on the best practices to defend a DUI/DWI charge, including:

  • Consulting a DUI and a drug recognition expert
  • Filing pre-trial motions, including motion to suppress evidence
  • Requesting and attending the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) hearing
  • Seeking limited driving privileges

Thus, we can help you save money on insurance rate increases.
