Strong Defense Against DWI Charges
All alcohol-related driving offenses are serious in North Carolina, and many charges can bring devastating, life-altering consequences upon conviction. If you have been charged with driving while impaired (DWI), at any level and under any circumstances, it is essential to speak with a qualified, highly experienced lawyer.
Investigation and preparation are essential in determining the best approach to a DWI or other criminal traffic offense. Your attorney should be trial proven and respected in area courts. Each decision you make should be informed by his or her understanding of your most important concerns and priorities. Clients who turn to me, Wilmington DWI lawyer Geoffrey W. Hosford, receive focused, personal attention and maximum effort every step of the way.
Using My Experience To Protect Your Rights
As a specialist in criminal law as certified by the North Carolina State Bar Board of Legal Specialization since 2001, I have extensive DWI case experience. My familiarity with effective DWI defense strategies is evident in my trial work, which has involved complex issues of necessity, entrapment, and community policing as well as probable cause for traffic stops and problems with chemical evidence and equipment.
What Charges Are You Facing?
If your future or a loved one’s future is on the line due to a criminal charge, I am here to prioritize and attack the case. My capabilities cover the full spectrum of misdemeanor and felony driving offenses such as:
- Basic, first-offense DWI charges — for which the many serious consequences of conviction should never be underestimated
- DWI cases involving aggravating factors such as any prior convictions, having a minor in the vehicle or causing serious injury in an alcohol-related accident
- Felony DWI charges faced by drivers classified as habitual offenders, and so facing mandatory jail time and permanent driver’s license revocation if convicted
- Underage DWI, underage drinking offenses and other student crimes
Current North Carolina DWI laws are complex. Please make certain you understand exactly what penalties you are facing — and please, do not assume that the outcome will be the same with or without a skilled defense lawyer on your side.
