Have You Been Charged With Aggravated DWI?

Aggravating factors in DWI cases include:

  • .18 BAC or higher BAC: While .08 to .17 BAC is considered a DWI, .18 and above is an aggravated DWI, carrying stiffer penalties.
  • Drunk driving with a child in the car: Leandra's Law or the Child Passenger Protection Act makes it a felony to drive drunk when a child aged 15 or younger is in the car.
  • Multiple DWI convictions: If you have already been convicted of DWI in the past 10 years, another DWI offense may be charged as an aggravated DWI.

I will explore all available legal strategies to help you defend against these charges. In some cases, it is possible to have an aggravated DWI charge reduced to a misdemeanor DWI. In other situations, it is possible to have charges dismissed altogether due to an illegal DWI stop or a malfunctioning Breathalyzer or inaccurate DWI blood test. In every case, I work tirelessly for the best possible outcome.

As a former prosecutor, I know how to challenge DWI evidence to obtain favorable results for my clients.
