Experience and Expertise to Effectively Fight for You
I have fought and won several DWI cases in Jefferson County, and throughout the Saint Louis area. During a DWI investigation police will cut corners, take shortcuts, and make mistakes. Your DUI lawyer should not! I provide my clients with an incredibly thorough DWI defense that often times leads to helpful evidence – the type of evidence that gets a DWI reduced to a non-alcohol violation, or even thrown out and dismissed.
If you have been charged with a DWI or DUI in Jefferson County you are facing a serious charge that could result in the loss of your drivers license, a criminal record, or even a jail or prison sentence. Because the stakes are so high in every case, it is extremely important to have the best Jefferson County DWI lawyer available to fight for you throughout the case.
DWI Defense in State and Municipal Court Cases
Whether your DWI / DUI is charged in state court or one of the many municipal divisions of Jefferson County depends on what police department charged you, and whether or not you have prior DWI arrests or convictions.
- Any DWI issued by the Missouri State Highway Patrol in Jefferson County will be prosecuted by the State Court in Hillsboro.
- Other police departments will often times prosecute first-time offenses locally in municipalities such as Byrnes Mill, Festus, Pevely, etc.
