Factors Causing DUI/DWI Charges in Oklahoma

Driving while impaired (DWI) differs from driving under the influence (DUI) because the blood alcohol content (BAC) requirement is below .08, whereas a DUI involves a BAC of .08 or above. Alcohol and drugs impair your ability to safely operate a vehicle, therefore the law is very strict about getting DUI offenders off the road.

With several decades of DUI/DWI defense experience behind us, we know all too well that good drivers and law-abiding citizens are often caught up in these cases through circumstances they could not have anticipated, such as:

  • Having a drink or two and driving home safely when another car struck them through no fault of their own. They were subsequently tested for blood alcohol content (BAC). The results came back positive and they were arrested even though they committed no traffic offenses.
  • Getting stopped while driving after taking legally prescribed medication that showed up in blood or urine tests.
  • Police or other law enforcement agents stopped them without probable cause – and they subsequently tested with a blood alcohol content above .08 percent.
  • They set out with a plan to get a ride home from a friend or take an Uber ride home if they drank alcohol. But they forgot about that plan and did not believe they were under the influence after a few drinks. With increased vigilance by police officers and fewer “bad drivers” on the road, their driving somehow caught the attention of a law enforcement agent. Now, they must focus on defending your driving privileges and your clean record.

Whatever happened to bring you to this point, please know that we are committed to helping you get through your DUI/DWI challenge and come out with your driving privileges and good name intact.
