DWI

Experienced Counsel For DWI Defense

Driving is a crucial part of many people’s lives in North Carolina. Whether you drive for your job, to take children to school, to go to medical appointments or even just to access recreational events, losing that ability is a serious problem.

When a traffic stop places your driving privileges and your freedom in jeopardy, Herring Law Center, PLLC, will be ready to help you. Our criminal defense attorney, Renorda Pryor, is experienced with driving while impaired (DWI) cases involving drugs or alcohol. We prioritize protecting your rights and minimizing the penalties you face.

First-Time Offenses Can Have Major Consequences

If you do not have a prior DWI conviction on your record, the penalties of a misdemeanor conviction can still impact your life. You might face fines plus jail time ranging from a day to two years. The court may also revoke your license for a year as part of a conviction. Drivers under 21 years of age are subject to stricter laws and penalties.

Depending on the severity of the charges, we can work to reduce the possible penalties in a variety of ways. For example, we can challenge the legitimacy of the initial traffic stop or argue in favor of more community service instead of jail time. We search for all opportunities that may boost your defense.

Serious And Repeat Offenses Bring Additional Penalties

If you have a prior DWI conviction, the potential penalties become even more severe, including losing your vehicle or installing an ignition interlock device. The charges may be especially serious in the case of an injury or fatal car accident – even for a first-time offense.

Renorda Pryor understands how important your vehicle and driving privileges are to your life, which is why she fights to save them when possible. Her experience in both misdemeanor and felony DWI cases gives her the insight to find a strategic path forward.

Commercial Drivers Can Seek To Protect Their Career

Commercial truck drivers, bus drivers and other transportation professionals rely on their commercial driver’s licenses (CDL) for their livelihoods. However, state laws are especially strict for professional drivers.

Our firm can represent you with skill when your career is at stake. We know that losing your commercial driver’s license could also mean losing your income, which is why we are determined to advocate for you.
