DWI Laws in Missouri

Missouri DWI laws allow for driver’s license suspensions of 30 days on a first offense. You must request an administrative hearing within 15 days of the arrest to get your license back. A conviction for drunk driving, even a first offense, can have serious and long-term consequences, affecting your insurance premiums and possibly your right to drive and your ability to earn a living.

Charges at DUI Checkpoints

Under Missouri DWI laws, law enforcement officials can establish DUI checkpoints on the roads and highways. Blood alcohol content data gathered there is admissible if the checkpoint was operated according to Supreme Court guidelines. Leaving a DUI checkpoint constitutes probable cause for arrest. If you were arrested under these circumstances, our defense rests on determining the legality of the checkpoint operation and the accuracy of the BAC testing equipment.

Being Pulled Over for DWI

In lieu of a DUI checkpoint, it is possible to be pulled over if a police officer suspects you are drunk driving.

If you were stopped and pulled over, our Rolla DWI attorneys build a defense by questioning:

  • The legality of the stop
  • The accuracy of the field sobriety test
  • The maintenance and inspection records of breathalyzer and Datamaster equipment

We can prepare you for the administrative hearing at the Department of Revenue and help secure the return of your suspended license. Our Rolla DUI attorneys are ready to defend you against criminal charges by filing suppression motions, seeking dismissal, and aggressively representing you in court.

If you have been charged with drunk driving, you need the skill and trial experience that we offer. Call us at (573) 240-8844 today.
