Driving Under Influence (DUI) / Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
Daniel Gabriele: DUI/DWI Lawyer in Independence, Kansas City, and Lee’s Summit MO
In the State of Missouri, a DUI/DWI is issued when a driver with a blood-alcohol content of .08 or more (the legal limit) is found to be operating a motor vehicle. The penalties associated with a DUI/DWI conviction can be significant. If you are stopped by a law officer for suspicion of driving drunk, and it is subsequently found that you had a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit while operating a motor vehicle, you may lose your right to drive. You have just 15 days from the arrest to have an attorney request a license hearing with the Missouri Department of Revenue to contest the license suspension and try to restore your driving privileges. If the license suspension is upheld, a competent attorney can help you file a petition for license reinstatement. Our firm may be able to arrange for a driving permit or hardship license that allows you to drive to work or school or to required drug/alcohol counseling.
