DWI Attorney | Jonesboro and Throughout Arkansas

Hard Drinker with Liqueur Glass - Attorney Office in Jonesboro, AR
The most common test given to drivers who seem to be driving under the influence is the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test. In Arkansas, a BAC of .08 percent or higher will generally result in a DWI charge, but impaired driving may be enough for a charge even if the BAC is less than .08. A drunk-driving conviction could affect you for the rest of your life. With each consequence increasing in severity after the first offense, you can expect probable jail time, fines and penalties, temporary license suspension and the installation of an ignition interlock device (IID). It’s important that you trust a DWI attorney with your defense. The Law Office of Michael Lilly in Jonesboro will handle these charges and the consequences of any related automobile accidents.

Strong Legal Representation for Your Case

What happens when you are charged with a DWI/DUI? In Arkansas, a criminal case will be filed and the DMV will suspend your driver’s license. If you act fast, requesting a hearing within seven days, you may be able to avoid losing your license. The courts in Arkansas do not need proof from a BAC (often obtained through a Breathalyzer) to show impairment. The police might use field sobriety tests, your physical appearance or a physical chemical test to infer impairment. Because the consequences of a conviction are heavy, it is always in your best interest to obtain the services of a lawyer before you attend the hearing.
