If you are charged with a DWI in Baton Rouge or elsewhere in Louisiana, you’re at risk of losing your license, a large fine, and more. The fact of the matter is, even if it is your first DWI offense, the consequences are intended to be harsh. It’s no secret that drunk drivers kill or injure thousands of people every year and the authorities’ job is to reduce the number of accidents.
When it comes to DWI, prevention is always vastly better than a cure. Don’t drink and drive. There are many alternatives nowadays to getting behind the wheel after a long night of drinking: ridesharing (Uber, Lyft, etc.), designated drivers, taxis, and so on. Spending a few bucks on an Uber ride is much cheaper than getting pulled over while drunk – or worse, getting into a serious accident with injuries or deaths. Of course, DWI accidents that result in the harm or death of another person are penalized much more severely.
At the Russell Law Firm, we handle both DWI defense and personal injury law, where we help people who very often may have been harmed in DWI-related accidents, so we see this issue from both sides. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal for very good reasons but, as with all laws, enforcement is never perfect and our job at all times is to represent the best interests of our clients.
What Can Be Done if I Am Charged With a DWI?
Hiring an outstanding DWI lawyer can make a big difference if you are charged with a DWI. There are cases where the authorities made a mistake in their investigation and may charge someone without proper evidence, so it’s our job to make sure everything has been done correctly. Regardless of the circumstances, however, we are here to ensure that our clients’ interests and rights are protected.
