Drunk driving is a crime that comes with severe punishments for those convicted of the offense. In El Paso County, police, prosecutors and the criminal court system do not take a drunk driving charge lightly. All drivers accused of being drunk behind the wheel with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of more than 0.08 percent will be prosecuted aggressively and to the full extent of the law.
Because the consequences are high, El Paso County drivers accused of DWI-related offenses will need to meet aggressive prosecutors with an equally aggressive defense. At The Foley Law Firm, we take pride in the work we do representing DWI defendants in their criminal court cases.
We realize that no two DWI cases are the same, and different people have a lot more to lose than others if their DWI case ends in conviction. For example, government workers, police officers, firefighters, teachers, drivers, professionals and other types of workers stand to have their careers destroyed if they are convicted of a DWI defense.
Others found guilty of DWI could suffer damage to their reputations, which could hurt their careers, romantic relationships, marriages, friendships and general standing in the community. On the other hand, some defendants may not suffer these kinds of consequences if they’re convicted of DWI, and they might want to address their charges with a different strategy that involves pleading guilty to the offense in exchange for a dramatic reduction in punishments.
Finally, there are many defendants wrongly accused of DWI. These defendants may have a good chance of getting their charges dropped, dismissed or receiving a verdict of not guilty if they can successfully navigate their criminal defense proceedings.
At The Foley Law Firm, we analyze the facts and evidence surrounding every DWI case we take on to devise a uniquely tailored criminal defense strategy to meet the needs, goals and specifications of our client. If you’ve been accused of DWI in El Paso County, our team of skilled legal professionals is available to advise you of your legal rights and options.
