West Virginia DUI or DWI

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or driving while intoxicated (also known as DUI or DWI) is a crime in every state, including West Virginia. It is an even more serious offense if you were in an accident in which someone was injured or killed, or if you are a repeat offender. A West Virginia DUI/DWI lawyer can explain your legal options.

As soon as possible after you've been charged with a West Virginia DUI/DWI, you'll want to hire a West Virginia DUI/DWI attorney. Finding a West Virginia criminal defense attorney experienced in this area of legal representation is imperative. Your attorney will advise you on all the factors involved in mounting a drunk-driving defense, informing you of all your available alternatives. Your lawyer will also thoroughly investigate your case to uncover any evidence that would support your innocence and build the best case possible to help you avoid conviction.
