Missouri DWI Defense Lawyers

Have You Been Accused of Drunk Driving?

If you have been accused of DWI, this may very well be your first run-in with the law. At Hanrahan & Nacy, our lawyers are dedicated to making certain it is your last. Even if you have been accused of this crime before, even if it has escalated to the point that you are being charged with felony DWI, you can be confident in our ability to get you through the system with as little impact on your life as possible.

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is what people are charged with when they are pulled over and found to have more than the legal limit of alcohol in their system or are under the influence of drugs, legal or otherwise. Although many people refer to drunk driving as DUI, driving under the influence of either alcohol or drugs is known only as DWI in Missouri. Our attorneys provide an aggressive defense against DWI.

The Hidden Costs of a DWI Conviction

For first offenders, the fine for DWI is a maximum of $500. At first glance, many people think this is a relatively small fine. Unfortunately, there are hidden costs. Not only do you run the risk of driver’s license suspension or revocation, you may have to have an ignition interlock device installed in your car when you are allowed to drive again, at your cost. Your insurance rates are also likely to increase significantly.

A DWI conviction can have an impact on employment. In this competitive job market, an employer may choose an applicant with a clean record over someone with a DWI. Of course, if you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), a DWI will affect your career. Our attorneys are dedicated to getting you acquitted or minimizing the impact of the charge.
