Why should I hire an attorney for my DWI?
The North Carolina Driving While Impaired Statute is becoming increasing complicated. Sorting through potential constitutional, factual and technical defenses is a difficult thing to do. Remember, it is the District Attorney's job to prosecute you to the fullest extent possible. Unless you have an attorney in court fighting for your rights, it is not a level playing field.
