Northwest Indiana DUI Attorneys

Facing an OWI/DUI charge is one of the most stressful life events a person can experience. The long-term consequences of a drunk driving conviction are so severe that your life could be altered in ways you never expected.

Because the punishment for drinking and driving in Indiana is so strict, it is crucial for you to contact a qualified OWI/DUI defense attorney immediately. Your lawyer will be your guide through the complicated Indiana court system. Your attorney will be the driving force ensuring your rights are protected every step of your legal journey.

If you have been arrested for operating while intoxicated in Indiana, you will face two different types of penalties. The first penalty is that your Indiana driver’s license will be suspended for six months if you take the BAC (breathalyzer test). If you refuse to take the BAC (breathalyzer test), your license will be suspended for 1 year for a first-time OWI/DUI, or 2 years if you have a prior OWI/DUI conviction.

The second penalty you face is if you are convicted of OWI/DUI, you may be sentenced to time in jail, an alcohol safety program, probation, and community service. You may even have to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle if this is not your first offense.

In addition to these court-sanctioned penalties, you will face steep consequences in other areas of your life. For example, you may have difficulty finding affordable automobile insurance. Your job could be in jeopardy if your employer requires a clean criminal and/or driving record.

A Knowledgeable DUI Attorney Can Help

Do not despair. You may assume that being charged with OWI/DUI means you will automatically be convicted and harshly sentenced. Nothing could be further from the truth! Attorney Shane O’Donnell, who is a former OWI Prosecutor, will closely examine the facts in your particular case and will determine your best and most effective defenses.
