About DWI/DUI Cases in St. Louis
In St. Louis, two separate sections of law govern the imposition of criminal sanctions and the suspension of a driver’s license. Missouri driver’s licenses are issued and administrated by the Missouri Department of Revenue. Once a person is charged with the offense of DWI/BAC, the Missouri Department of Revenue may file suit to suspend that person’s driver’s license. At an administrative hearing, an experienced DWI/BAC attorney can appear and challenge the suspension of the driver’s license by contesting the Department of Revenue’s evidence and calling witnesses. Even if the attorney is unable to prevent the license suspension, the hearing gives the attorney the opportunity to assess the strength of the state’s case and better advise their client on the appropriate course of action in the subsequent criminal proceedings.
In addition to the license suspension proceedings, a person arrested for DWI/BAC faces criminal consequences, such as fines, imprisonment, and a conviction. All DWI/BAC convictions are dependent upon the facts of each case. The DWI/BAC attorneys at Zolman Law Firm are ready to fight for the preservation of your license, liberty, and finances.
