DUI/DWI cases are like no other charges in the criminal system. They’re fast moving, highly penalizing, and they come with an entirely different burden of proof. If you’ve been charged with a DUI, you can’t afford to delay. Choosing Norton Hare right now to defend your rights is a way to protect your life, your bank account, and your freedom in the years to come.
The DUI Difference
The pressure to arrest and convict drivers on DUIs is ever increasing in the world of law enforcement because it often means a monetary gain for states that other convictions simply don’t have attached. Cases are more complex than ever these days, and the burden of proof increasingly falls on the defense thanks to implied consent laws.
Does that mean you should simply plead guilty to the charges and move on? Absolutely not. It does, however, mean you need an aggressive DUI law firm that understands and embraces the challenges ahead.
Crafting a drunk driving defense strategy requires an entirely different knowledge of the laws in Kansas and Missouri as well as the experience necessary to know what police procedures are used during traffic stops, what scientific and medical evidence will be introduced in the courtroom, and what training police deploy to use their available resources.
Attorney Jay Norton – a member of the National College for DUI Defense and the State Delegate to the organization for the state of Kansas – and the rest of the team at Norton Hare have been working with defendants like you for more than two decades. We know how to build a defense that questions every ounce of evidence against you.
What’s On the Line If I’m Convicted of Drunk Driving?
A DUI is not a routine traffic offense. The effects burrow their way into every aspect of your life.
You may see DUI ramifications in all of the following places.
- Your license
- Your criminal record
- Your job
- Your money
- Your family relationships
It’s a confusing, frustrating process ahead. After a DUI stop, you’ll be arrested, taken to jail, fingerprinted, and photographed. The worst part? It doesn’t end after you’re convicted. On every single job application, every single rent and loan application, you’ll have to relive it again and again.
You have one chance right now – hiring the right attorney. There are many possible strategies we can exploit to help achieve your best possible outcome.
The One Mistake That Could Change Your Life
If you’ve been arrested on DUI charges, there are many things you should do immediately. There are also several things you shouldn’t do.
Unfortunately, there’s one huge mistake many people make that changes everything – not taking the matter seriously. DUI charges will follow you, and if you don’t find the right law firm to help you fight the charges, you’re walking into a trap with long-term consequences.
Protect Your Rights
A person is not guilty of a drinking and driving violation just because he or she is charged with one. A charge of DUI in Kansas or DWI in Missouri can have serious ramifications on a defendant’s driver’s license, criminal record and ability to function in society.
