If you or a loved one has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI/DWI), it is important to take immediate action to protect your rights and freedom. At Freedom First Criminal Defense, our experienced attorneys are dedicated to providing aggressive and effective representation for individuals facing DUI/DWI charges. We understand the serious consequences that come with a conviction, and we will fight tirelessly to help you obtain the best possible outcome in your case.
Driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) is a serious crime that carries significant legal penalties, including fines, jail time, and the loss of your driver's license. In many states, a first-time DUI offense is considered a misdemeanor, but repeat offenses or particularly high blood alcohol levels can result in felony charges.
If you have been charged with DUI, it is essential to retain the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. At Freedom First Criminal Defense, we have the knowledge and skills to challenge the evidence against you and provide a strong defense in court.
One of the key ways we can help is by challenging the accuracy of the breathalyzer test that was used to determine your blood alcohol level. Breathalyzer tests are not always reliable, and there are a number of factors that can affect their accuracy, including the type of machine used and the training of the officer who administered the test. Our attorneys will carefully review the evidence and work to identify any potential problems with the breathalyzer test in your case.
We will also work to challenge any other evidence against you, such as eyewitness testimony or other forms of chemical testing. We will do everything in our power to help you avoid a conviction and protect your rights and freedom.
If you have been charged with driving under the influence of drugs, you are facing serious consequences that can impact every aspect of your life. In many states, even a first-time offense can result in jail time, steep fines, and a license suspension. And if you have previous convictions or if your actions resulted in injury or property damage, the penalties can be even more severe.
That's why it's so important to have a skilled and knowledgeable attorney by your side. At Freedom First Criminal Defense, we understand the complex laws and legal processes involved in these cases, and we know how to build a strong defense on your behalf. We will carefully review the details of your case, examine the evidence against you, and challenge any violations of your rights.
One of the most common ways that people are charged with a DUI/DWI is by driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) that is above the legal limit. In most states, the legal limit is a BAC of 0.08%, but it can vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case. For example, if you are a commercial driver or a minor, the legal limit may be lower.
If you are pulled over and a breathalyzer test or other test shows that your BAC is above the legal limit, you may be charged with a DUI/DWI. This is a serious offense that can carry significant penalties, including fines, jail time, and the loss of your driver's license.
At Freedom First Criminal Defense, we know that there are many ways to challenge a BAC test and fight a DUI/DWI charge based on a high BAC. Our attorneys will carefully review the evidence in your case, including the details of the traffic stop and the accuracy of the testing equipment. We will work tirelessly to build a strong defense on your behalf and protect your rights.
In the state of [state], it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. If you are pulled over and found to be over the legal limit, you will be arrested and charged with DWI.
The consequences of a DWI conviction can be severe and long-lasting. You may face fines, jail time, and the loss of your driver's license. In addition, a DWI conviction will remain on your criminal record, potentially impacting your ability to find employment, secure housing, and even obtain loans.

Our attorneys will explore all possible defenses and work to ensure that you receive a fair trial and the best possible outcome for your case.
A DUI/DWI charge can be a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances of the case. A first-time DUI/DWI offense is typically a misdemeanor, but it can be upgraded to a felony if the individual has previous DUI/DWI convictions or if the incident resulted in injuries or fatalities.
If you are facing a felony DUI/DWI charge, the stakes are higher and the potential consequences are more severe. A conviction can result in significant jail time, hefty fines, and the loss of your driver's license. You may also face other consequences, such as the loss of your job, difficulty finding employment in the future, and damage to your personal and professional relationships.
At Freedom First Criminal Defense, we understand the serious nature of a felony DUI/DWI charge. We will work tirelessly to build a strong defense on your behalf, using our knowledge of the law and our experience in the courtroom to protect your rights and fight for the best possible outcome in your case.
In many cases, individuals who are charged with DUI/DWI were driving without a valid license at the time of the incident. This can be due to a suspended or revoked license, or simply because the driver never obtained a license in the first place. If you were charged with DUI/DWI while driving without a valid license, you may face additional penalties on top of those associated with the DUI/DWI charge itself.
It's important to understand that driving without a valid license is a separate offense from DUI/DWI, and you will need to address both charges in order to protect your rights and minimize the consequences you face. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you understand the charges against you and develop a strategy for responding to them.
One of the most common issues that arises in DUI/DWI cases is a refusal to submit to a chemical test. This can happen for a number of reasons, including fear, confusion, or simply not wanting to cooperate with law enforcement. However, it's important to understand that refusing to submit to a chemical test carries its own consequences, separate from the underlying DUI/DWI charge.
Under most state laws, driving is considered a privilege, not a right. As a condition of this privilege, drivers are required to comply with certain laws, including submitting to a chemical test if asked to do so by a law enforcement officer. If a driver refuses to submit to a chemical test, they can be subject to additional penalties, even if they are ultimately not convicted of a DUI/DWI.
For example, in many states, a refusal to submit to a chemical test can result in an automatic suspension of the driver's license. This suspension can last for several months, and the driver may be required to complete an alcohol education program before their license is reinstated. In some cases, the driver may be required to install an ignition interlock device (IID) in their vehicle, which prevents the vehicle from starting if the driver has been drinking.
At Freedom First Criminal Defense, we can help you understand the potential consequences of refusing to submit to a chemical test and develop a defense strategy to protect your rights and freedom.
Being charged with a hit and run while under the influence is a serious offense.

At Freedom First Criminal Defense, we understand the complexities of hit and run cases, and we know how to build a strong defense.

If you are under the age of 21 and have been charged with DUI/DWI, you may be facing serious penalties. In most states, it is illegal for a person under the age of 21 to operate a vehicle with any detectable amount of alcohol in their system.
