Experience On Your Side
DWIs (sometimes called DUIs) can lead to far-reaching consequences, impacting your driving privileges, tarnishing your reputation and potentially jeopardizing your employment. The criminal consequences alone for a first-time offense can range from hundreds of dollars in fines to several months in jail. Repeat offenses carry even harsher sentences, and some are felonies. DWI charges should never be taken lightly.
Following an arrest for DWI, your next step should be to involve an attorney as soon as possible. Contact the St. Louis area law firm of Grant, Miller & Smith, LLC, for a confidential consultation.
The firm’s DWI/DUI defense lawyers draw on a wealth of experience — more than 60 years combined — to protect the rights and reputation of clients. They understand the nuances of Missouri courts, where they appear on a daily basis. Additionally, attorney Greg Smith recently completed in-depth training on DWI detection and field sobriety tests through a course sponsored by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). The legal team’s outstanding trial skills and problem-solving abilities can work to your advantage.
While alcohol is a common factor in many DWI arrests, you can also face charges for allegedly driving under the influence of drugs such as marijuana, cocaine and narcotics. Even legally valid prescription medications can result in a DWI arrest.
Drug-related DUI charges carry the same severe consequences as those involving alcohol. The lawyers at Grant, Miller & Smith have invaluable experience handling both types of charges. They can guide you through the process, strategize a strong course of defense and make sure that your rights do not get swept aside.
