DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE (DUI)
DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED (DWI)
OPERATING WHILE INTOXICATED (OWI, OVWI, OVI)
With the persistent campaigning against drunk driving in full effect, Indiana legislature and law enforcement have taken a stricter stance against the crime. DUI check points are popping up all over the city, and DUI Tests are more difficult to pass than ever before. The number of reasons why you can be pulled over are essentially equal to the number of vehicles on the road. That means even the most unsuspecting or law-abiding person can fall guilty of the crime at any given point in their lives. DUI’s exclude no one, but a tough DUI defense lawyer can exclude you from jail time and other harsh drunk driving penalties if you choose the right one. Trust experienced DWI lawyer, David. E. Lewis, to craft an impactful and strong defense on your behalf, and relieve you of all the stress and worry that comes with a DUI charge.
