Driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol and driving while impaired (DWI) are both serious criminal offenses in the state of North Carolina. Any individual suspected of DUI/DWI in Raleigh or the surrounding area needs to understand that neither the arresting officer nor the prosecuting attorney will exhibit any leniency when it comes to gathering evidence and pursuing a conviction. To help you defend your rights and protect your freedom, we strongly advise you obtain the legal services of a skilled Raleigh criminal defense lawyer.
Although legislation is currently in the works to have the laws changed by the end of year, as it stands right now a North Carolina DUI conviction does not qualify to be expunged off a person's criminal record. Negotiating for a reduction in charges, pursuing a complete dismissal of your DUI charge or working closely with your lawyer to obtain an acquittal at trial is your best option to avoid having a DUI conviction added to your criminal record. For the last 20 years the lawyers at our firm have taken pride in being steadfast advocates committed to helping clients fight the criminal charges they face.
We have always held a strong belief that people deserve a second chance and that is why we aggressively pursue any opportunity to help our clients expunge their record or avoid a criminal conviction in the first place. If you have been charged with a DUI and you need help fighting the charges you face, or you would like to find out more about how and when you may be able to get your DUI expunged in North Carolina, contact Hopper Law Firm PLLC.
