Louisiana law takes drunk driving seriously. So, when you have been arrested for DWI (often referred to as DUI or OUI), working with a knowledgeable attorney is critical to your success. At Stephen Rue & Associates, we have in-depth knowledge of Louisiana criminal law and DWI law.
Our lawyers focus on helping our clients fight the serious consequences of a DUI conviction. These consequences can range from fines to years of imprisonment, depending on your record of prior DUI offenses and the seriousness of the charges you face.
With extensive experience, we have the capacity to successfully represent people who have been arrested for drunk driving (DWI/DUI/OWI) in the state of Louisiana. We build strong defenses by paying attention to every aspect of your case:
- Was the traffic stop legal?
- Were you given the proper field sobriety tests?
- Were the field sobriety tests given correctly?
- Was the Intoxilyzer 500 calibrated correctly?
- Did the officer correctly read the results of your blood or breath test?
By examining every detail, we are able to see where errors may have occurred. We never let the police overstep their bounds by allowing evidence to be used against you when it was illegally obtained. We make sure that your case is viewed in the most favorable light and that you receive the best possible results.
The state of Louisiana automatically suspends the driver's licenses of drivers who refuse to take a sobriety test. To protect your license, you must request a hearing within 15 days of your arrest. Failure to act in time means the loss of your driving privileges. Contact our law firm as soon as possible to take action. Our phones are answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We also represent people who have been accused of traffic offenses such as speeding, reckless driving, driving on a suspended or revoked driver's license, driving without insurance or vehicular manslaughter.
