What to do if You are Accused of a DWI

Being accused of a DWI can be one of the most stressful and frightening times of your life. No matter the circumstances, you may be unsure of what steps you should take after the initial incident. If you are currently dealing with a DWI, there are several things you should do directly after that may help your court case down the road.

Keep Details Private


Talking about your DWI on social media could seriously affect your case’s outcome. Keep details to yourself, do not hint at any admission of guilt, no matter how small.

Keep Detailed Records


As you speak to those who witnessed your alleged DWI, it is important to keep detailed records of what they tell you. The when, where, why, and how of your case will be examined closely by lawyers and law enforcement alike. Be sure to keep track of all the details of your case, such as:

  • Who was with you
  • What time of day it happened
  • The name and badge number of the cop who pulled you over
No detail, however small, should be overlooked or omitted from your records.
