Arrested for driving under the influence?
DWI (also know as DUI) is a serious offense that can have significant, life-changing consequences. Arrest and conviction of a DWI can result in a criminal record, hefty fines, loss of your driving privileges for months or years, jail time, and even the loss of your job. To avoid or minimize the damage that a DWI conviction can cause, you need an experienced attorney who will guide you through your legal options and protect your rights.
The expert DUI attorneys at Harmon, Smith & Vourvoulias provide aggressive, thorough representation to people accused of DWI/DUI in Greater New Orleans and the River Parishes. Our firm works with you to determine the best strategy for your case, and we never plead out a case until all other options are exhausted.
Building Your Defense
Despite what you may have heard, it is possible to overcome some DWI/DUI and related charges. The police sometimes make mistakes. The police officer who pulled you over may not have had probable cause to stop you or may have violated your rights by improperly administering the field sobriety tests. Breathalyzer machines, which measure your blood alcohol level, sometimes return questionable readings that can be inadmisible in court. In addition, biological factors sometimes explain the results of blood alcohol tests like the Breathalyzer. There may also be legal issues preventing the state from obtaining a conviction.
At Harmon, Smith & Vourvoulias, our first priority is finding a way to obtain a dismissal of your charges or a reduction to a non-alcohol-related driving offense. We will review every detail of your case to find any and all available defenses and will aggressively represent you throughout the legal process.
