Cases involving driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs are known by many different names, but all of them require the services of a skilled criminal defense DUI lawyer. Different jurisdictions have different names for drunk driving:
DUI (driving under the influence) - Kansas's terminology for drunk driving
DWI (driving while impaired or intoxicated) - Missouri's terminology for drunk driving
OUI (operating under the influence)
DUII (driving under the influence of intoxicants)
OUIL (operating under the influence of liquor)
DWAI (driving while abilities are impaired)
OMVI (operating a motor vehicle while impaired)
"wet reckless" (alcohol related reckless driving).
Nationwide, the penalties for a drunk driving conviction are getting more and more severe, and can include substantial jail time, loss of driver's license, increased car insurance rates, ignition interlock device placed on your vehicle after your license is reinstated, auto impoundment, alcohol and drug educational classes (DUI school), lifetime conviction on your criminal record, negative effects on your DMV driving record, denial of admission into foreign countries, denial of naturalization or deportation from the U.S., employment consequences, professional license consequences, the inability to rent a car, consequences in unrelated legal proceedings (such as divorce or child custody hearings), not to mention the embarrassment associated with an arrest for DUI.
DUI laws include specifics such as blood alcohol content level, which varies from state to state, but generally it must not exceed .08 percent (BAC). This is the legislated level for Kansas. Driver's license suspensions and/or revocations follow a drunk driving conviction. Forty-five states permit convicted drunk driving offenders to drive only if their vehicles have been equipped with ignition interlocks. Kansas is very strict about requiring interlock devices on vehicles driven by dui offenders.
"When I take on a DUI case, I approach it as a personal challenge. After years of defending hundreds of people, I noticed some similarities and legal issues that more commonly arose. However, each DUI case is unique. I enjoy analyzing the specific issues for each individual case, and formulating a strategy given the specific situation....searching for chinks in the prosecutor's armor. While I never guarantee a certain outcome, I do guarantee aggressive, thorough advocacy. I will personally do everything I can to effectively defend you."
