DUI / DWI Defense

Experienced Missouri DWI and DUI Attorney

If you are facing a drunk driving charge, you should hire a lawyer who will help you understand the potentially serious consequences that you could be facing. A DWI/DUI charge can affect your life, your wallet, and your freedom.

A driver's license or commercial driver's license (CDL) suspension can affect your ability to earn a living. Costly fines can damage your financial position. In more serious cases, you may face jail time. Protect your rights. Contact an experienced DWI and DUI attorney at Sotta & Briggs immediately.

There are two aspects of a DWI case. The first involves an administrative hearing where the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) can suspend your license. The second is the criminal trial, where the justice system can impose fines and jail sentences on criminal defendants.

You should understand the difference between these proceedings. You can be successful in one proceeding but lose in the other. Hire an experienced DUI and DWI attorney to represent you during both hearings. We will explore every avenue of possible resolution in your defense. Were you pulled over on I-44 or US-71? We will question whether the officer had probable cause to stop you in the first place. Was the officer properly trained to administer sobriety tests? Was the equipment properly calibrated? The answers to these questions could determine the result of your case.

We are committed to providing clients with thorough and skilled defenses in both the administrative hearings and the criminal trials. We know how to challenge alcohol related traffic stops and the circumstances surrounding the stops. Put our knowledge and experience to work for you.
