driving and drinking in North Carolina

Don't Let a DWI Charge in Charlotte Ruin Your Life

Under North Carolina law, there are two paths to a drunk driving conviction:

  • Failure of a chemical test, such as a Breathalyzer test: A blood alcohol level (BAC level) of .08 or higher can result in a conviction.
  • Appreciable impairment: No chemical test is required for this type of conviction, which is based on failed field sobriety tests, appearance of intoxication, driving pattern or other conditions that indicate alcohol impairment.

We will fight to prevent a conviction. Our DWI defense strategies allow us to take on all types of drunk driving charges, from first offenses to multiple offenses. We defend adults, as well as minors facing underage DWI charges. Our goal is to protect you from the DWI punishments and sentencing you could face. Offenses committed after December 1, 2011 may face being convicted up to a level A1. This charge carries mandatory minimum jail times and larger fines.

In addition to defending against the drunk driving charge itself, our Charlotte DWI Defense Lawyer can assist with open container tickets and all DMV matters, including obtaining limited driving privileges. We provide representation in hearings to contest driver’s license suspensions, such as suspensions related to Breathalyzer refusal.

Our Charlotte DWI Attorney specializes in defending against charges of driving while impaired (DWI), also commonly referred to as driving under the influence (DUI). These charges require immediate action due to the strictness of North Carolina’s laws. At the Law Office of Jason H. Reece, our Charlotte DWI Defense Lawyer will move quickly to protect your constitutional rights and civil liberties while guiding you through the criminal justice system.
