Drunk driving is a serious offense that carries serious consequences if the accused is convicted of the DWI charges. Large fines, jail time and suspension of the driver's license are just some of the punishments that are possible for those charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving under the influence (DUI). If you are facing these types of charges, you need the assistance of an experienced criminal defense and DWI defense lawyer.
At the law office of Villarini & Henry, L.L.P., we have been providing aggressive and tailored criminal defense and DWI defense services to clients since the establishment of our firm in 1985.

Effect on Your Driver's License
A DWI charge does not always result in the long-term suspension of your driver's license. It will, however, result in the suspension of your license for a period of time before you appear to argue your case and situation at an administrative license hearing. After this hearing, you may be able to retain your license for certain activities — such as going to work — or keep it altogether.
Contact an attorney at Villarini & Henry, L.L.P., today and schedule a consultation to discuss how to begin structuring your DWI defense.
