We'll Make Sure You're Driving Again.

We talk every day with people who have been arrested for DWI. One of the first questions they ask is, "Will I be able to drive if convicted?"

For most people, the answer is yes, though there may be certain restrictions placed on their driving privileges. It all depends on the specific circumstances of your case.

The best way to keep your driving privileges however, is to beat the DWI charge. At our firm, that is always our preferred strategy. We aggressively defend our clients at all stages of the legal process, including pretrial hearings, license suspension hearings and if necessary, at trial.

Pre-trial License Revocation

When you get arrested for DWI/DUI in North Carolina, your driver's license will be automatically suspended for 30 days. After 10 days, you may be able to get a hardship license that allows you to drive for certain purposes. The hardship license does not come automatically however. You must demonstrate to a judge that you have a legitimate need to drive and that you are worthy of getting limited driving privileges. To do this, you will need representation by an experienced DWI defense attorney to get your license back, as well as to deal with the criminal charge itself.

Having represented thousands of clients in the course of our practice, we understand how important it is that you be able to drive as soon as possible after you've been charged with DWI.  As part of our representation of you, we'll make sure you are driving again as soon as possible. 


Keeping You on the Road

If you are convicted for a first-time DWI in North Carolina, your license may be suspended for up to a year. The license suspension period increases for people with multiple convictions. If you have two or more convictions, restoration of your license will require the installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle.

Even if you are convicted, it may be possible to obtain limited driving privileges that allow you to drive during certain hours. If a conviction cannot be avoided, we will work hard to obtain the most liberal driving privileges we can. Mr. Vanderweert's goal will be to keep you on the road, so you can continue to go to work or school and tend to your affairs.
