How Do You Fight A DWI?
Well, one of the first things you do when you get a DWI is you need to find an attorney. So, you need to find an attorney who is competent in criminal defense and DWI offense.
You don’t want to get a lawyer who does this or that you want someone within that community whether it’s Orleans Parish, Jefferson Parish, Saint Tammany Parish like we are that actually knows the prosecutors, that knows the judges, that knows the system and how they’re handled. Certain Parishes have diversions, others don’t, so you really need to get someone what’s involved and that actually practices DWI defense work.
So, that’s one of the first things that you do. Other than that you don’t need to drink or drive again. You need to assess yourself and figure out whether or not maybe alcohol or drugs is a problem and get yourself into some treatment.
