North Carolina DWI Laws: What you need to know

DUI/DWI is a serious offense, and North Carolina has some of the strictest drinking and driving laws ever adopted in the U.S., but there are circumstances that may influence the outcome in your favor, depending on your circumstances.

  • Were you actually impaired?
  • Did the officer have a right to stop your vehicle?
  • Did the officer have sufficient evidence to place you under arrest for DUI/DWI?
  • Did the officer properly administer the field sobriety tests before arresting you?
  • Were proper procedures followed during your arrest?
  • Were proper procedures followed during any breath or blood tests?
Due to the severity of DWI sentencing in North Carolina, our attorneys explore all avenues in preparation of your defense.
