DWI Is More Serious Than You Think

Perhaps you know that you could lose your driver's license. Perhaps you know that you could be fined up to $1,000 for your first DWI and even more for repeat offenses. Perhaps you know that you could spend up to six months behind bars for your first offense and even more if you have been convicted of DWI before. But that is not all.

  • Do you know about all the hidden repercussions of a drunk driving conviction?
  • Do you know that the fine does not include court costs, fees and other surcharges, including the costs related to alcohol counseling or an ignition interlock device?
  • Do you know that your insurance premiums will likely skyrocket?
  • Do you know that you will have a criminal record that can be seen by potential employers and others?
  • Do you know that you can fight DWI charges and possibly avoid all repercussions?

Fight Drunk Driving Charges.

At Palazzo Law Firm in Gretna, Louisiana, we fight for people accused of drunk driving in the New Orleans metropolitan area, and throughout the Gulf South region. We have more than 20 years of experience handling driving while intoxicated (DWI) charges, also referred to as driving under the influence (DUI) charges. We have an impressive record of success.

Many people plead guilty to these charges, thinking that they cannot be fought, thinking that the evidence against them is too strong. What evidence do they have against you? Did you blow over the legal limit? That evidence is not as strong as you may think. There is room for human error in the administration of the test. There is room for mechanical error if the breath test device has not been properly calibrated and maintained. Our criminal law attorneys know how to find the flaws in the evidence in drunk driving cases. When we find them, we use them to seek reduced charges or dismissal of charges.

We are trial lawyers. While some may see DWI charges as minor, we do not. We recognize that they can prove costly, and for that reason we are prepared to fight them in court if that is what it takes to protect you, your driving privileges, and your future.
