Denver DUI/DWAI Attorneys
Driving under the influence (DUI) and driving while your ability is impaired (DWAI) are both crimes that can quickly turn your life upside down. To protect your job, your finances, and your freedom, seek help from Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. Our expert Colorado DUI attorneys will vigorously defend you against the harsh penalties a conviction can bring.
What You Can Be Charged With
You can be arrested and charged with DUI if officers believe you are above the legal limit of 0.08% BAC. It does not matter how buzzed you feel or whether you think you can safely drive your car; with a BAC of 0.08% or higher, you are presumed to be too drunk to drive.
A DWAI charge arises when officers believe you cannot safely drive your car because of alcohol consumption. The prosecution need not show that you had any specific amount of alcohol in your system. Instead, it is enough to convict you if prosecutors show you had some alcohol in your body and your ability to drive safely was impaired.
What Happens If You’re Convicted of a DUI: The Penalties
Even first-time DUI and DWAI offenders may be sentenced to jail, assessed hundreds of dollars in fines, and ordered to perform community service.
If you have previously been convicted of DUI or DWAI, the penalties will only increase. A first-time DUI conviction also means that your license will be suspended for nine months.
You may also lose employment, have a professional license revoked, or have difficulty obtaining housing or getting approval for loans.
Providing Personalized Strategies for Those Charged with a DUI/DWAI
No two DUI or DWAI cases are alike. Your Colorado DUI attorney will work hard to understand the evidence collected by officers. Then, we will design a personalized defense strategy.
