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
I will personally do everything I can to effectively defend you."
