Drunk Driving Defense
One of the most serious traffic violations is driving under the influence of alcohol. The Law Office of Joe Ramboldt, LLC has attorneys practicing in Missouri and Kansas State and Municipal courts. Our office handles felony and misdemeanor DWI/DUI. Although Missouri and Kansas border each other, the state laws regarding DWI/DUI have substantial differences.
There are two aspects to the charge of DWI/DUI. First, there is the administrative portion of the offense. This portion of the offense addresses whether or not you lose your driver’s license. In Kansas you may have as little as ten days to request an administrative hearing. The time in Missouri may be as little as fifteen days. If you fail to meet the time requirements, you will lose your driver’s license.
The second aspect of a DWI/DUI charge is the criminal portion. In this portion of the DWI/DUI the court decides whether you go to jail/prison and/or pay fines etc. You may also lose your license if you are convicted of a DWI/DUI.
It is important that you have a law firm that understands the intricacy of DWI/DUI law. A DWI/DUI conviction can have detrimental effects on your future especially if your employment includes driving.
You should save an attorney’s phone number on your cell phone in case you are ever stopped for DWI/DUI. Some jurisdictions will allow you to consult an attorney before you perform a breath test. You should also be aware of the state’s laws regarding the effects of a refusal to take a breath test on your driver’s license.
If you have a commercial driver’s license and are pulled over in your personal vehicle, then you may still lose your commercial driver’s license. Anyone who has a CDL and receives a DWI/DUI should contact our office immediately.
If you have been charged with DWI/DUI, you need a reputable and aggressive attorney on your side. An experienced and knowledgeable attorney can protect your rights, and confidently guide you through the legal process. At the Law Office of Joe Ramboldt, LLC, we have helped countless clients fight their DWI charges. We are determined to achieve success in court, and are not afraid to challenge or negotiate with prosecutors to get our clients’ charges amended or dismissed.
