Operating While Intoxicated (OWI)
We represent people charged with Operating a Vehicle while Intoxicated. If you are facing this serious charge without a lawyer, you do not have to face the criminal justice system alone. Your first OWI conviction could send you to jail. You could also be fined heavily, and lose your right to drive. You could also be required to attend and complete an expensive alcohol treatment program. The penalties for a second OWI conviction are worse including a mandatory 5 day jail sentence or performing 180 hours of community service.
People sometimes plead guilty in OWI cases because they do not know about important legal defenses available to them. As experienced lawyers, we will review your case and use every possible legal defense to protect your rights. We have experience in over 100 criminal jury trials. In 2012, Steven Knecht was selected as one of the top 100 Indiana trial lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers.
If you would like to discuss how we may be able to help you in your OWI case, call us today for a free interview. Then, if you wish to hire us as your lawyer, we will explain all fees and costs in advance. In some cases, a payment plan can be arranged.
Do not wait. And do not face the State of Indiana alone.
