Many people do not realize that even first-time DUI/DWI offenses can have significant consequences. There are specific procedures that must be followed and strict timelines following your arrest and charges. The most important step to take is to hire a defense attorney to protect your rights.
I am DUI/DWI defense attorney Broocks Greer, and I have been representing clients in Shreveport and the surrounding Louisiana areas for more than 40 years. I devote much of my practice to criminal matters and have particular experience in first DWI offenses in Shreveport, repeat DUI/DWI offenses and general DUI/DWI defense.
Defenses to First-Time DUI/DWI Offenses
There are a number of different approaches that I can take as your defense lawyer. When representing my clients, I immediately request the discovery of videotapes and documentation surrounding the performance of the field sobriety tests, information about the breath tests and more.
First-time offenses are misdemeanors. The consequences for a misdemeanor conviction are considerably less than a felony offense, but can still be serious. I will work to negotiate a resolution before trial and work to minimize the negative impacts of the situation as much as possible. You can trust that at Broocks Greer, Attorney at Law, LLC, you will be represented with strong advocacy.
