Getting arrested for DWI is no laughing matter. Years ago it was not considered serious but now it can have a profound impact on your life. This can affect your employment, your driving privileges, and can even your finances. The estimated cost of getting a DWI from start to finish can easily be over $5,000. Having a DWI attorney in your corner can save you lots of money and can even help you protect your driving privileges.
Over the last few years Louisiana has cracked down on DWI offenders because of the rising number of accidents and fatalities caused by drunk drivers. You will not get a slap on the wrist but you will pay fines, possibly AA meetings, the loss of your drivers license and so on. That is why its so important to quickly find a DWI attorney that fits your budget and experience level.
