West Virginia DUI Attorney
Driving under the influence, or DUI, is a serious criminal accusation. At Angotti & Straface, L.C., we defend people facing charges of DUI. A conviction for drunk driving can bring with it a suspended license, a revoked license, or even prison time. It is important to have a lawyer familiar with DUI/DWI laws and the criminal justice system. We can help you defend yourself and protect your rights and your future if you have been accused of drinking and driving.
There are two parts to the process of DUI matters. Administrative hearings determine issues of license suspension, revocation, and other DMV administrative matters. Criminal hearings determine if jail time, fines, or other punishment is in order for the conduct you are being tried for. In both situations, it is best to act quickly and contact a West Virginia DUI attorney before your rights are lost. A failure to act promptly can lead to the loss of your license without any further action by prosecutors.
Whether you are headed for city court, or the magistrate court, the more time your attorney has to work on your case, the better. Field sobriety tests, breathalyzer tests, and other methods of blood alcohol level determination are not always reliable. If mistakes were made by police, your arrest may not have been valid. Our lawyers have over 40 years of combined experience providing aggressive and knowledgeable criminal defense. We can help you deal with the prosecution and work through these difficult issues.
