Many citizens charged with driving while intoxicated have never stepped foot inside of a court room and have had no previous blemishes on their criminal record. The court process can be confusing and downright scary when you have no idea what to expect; however, with an experienced DWI defense attorney on your side, you can feel confident that your rights will be protected. DWI defense attorney Bill Powers of the Law Offices of Powers McCartan is ready to take on your DWI case and help you through this difficult process.
After you are arrested for DWI, you will be required to appear in court. During this time, the prosecution will state the charge(s) against you and present evidence to prove that you were driving while impaired. Your defense attorney’s job is to refute the evidence against you and disprove the prosecution’s claims by building a strong defense. At any time before your DWI case goes to trial, the prosecution (the State of North Carolina) and your defense attorney may decide to enter into a plea bargain.
