Even if it’s your first DWI offense in North Carolina, you could be facing possible jail time, a suspension of your driving privileges, drastically increased insurance premiums, an ignition interlock device, probation, alcohol counseling and a fine of up to $4,000, depending on the circumstance. You definitely need to hire an experienced North Carolina DWI attorney to help you.

In North Carolina, DWI stands for “driving while impaired” and means the operation of a vehicle after the consumption of drugs, alcohol or other intoxicants. The Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) limit in the state is 0.08%.

If you’re pulled over for suspected DWI and have a North Carolina driver’s license, then you have already given “implied consent” to take a blood or alcohol test. If you refuse the blood or alcohol test, then you may lose your driver’s license for up to 1 year.
