DWI AND DUI ARE TWO DIFFERENT TERMS For The same offense. DWI stands for driving while intoxicated. DUI stands for driving under the influence. In Missouri, DWI and DUI mean the same thing; there is no legal difference between them.

YOU ONLY HAVE 15 DAYS TO SAVE YOUR LICENSE! The arresting officer took your license and gave you a temporary permit to drive. That permit is good for only 15 days. We must file the proper paperwork so you can continue driving until your hearing. If we don't file in time, your license will be automatically revoked. Jackie Hunt will take care of all the paperwork. Call her today at 314-993-0984.

THE COST OF A DWI CONVICTION CAN BE STAGGERING. You can be fined or even go to jail. Your driver license can be suspended or revoked. Your insurance rates can shoot through the roof. You can lose your job or be passed over for promotions. You may have a hard time finding another job. In short, the cost of a DWI conviction can far outweigh the cost for a good, hard-fighting DWI attorney.

IF YOU ARE CHARGED WITH DWI, THE DECK Is Stacked against you. DWI cases are different from most other criminal case because of the high level of emotion attached to them. For more than 30 years, various organizations have spent tens of thousands of dollars and countless man hours whipping the country into a frenzy over DWI. And now YOU face this highly charged emotional climate.

EVERY DWI IS TWO CASES IN ONE, A Civil Case and a criminal case. In the civil case, your LICENSE is at risk. In the criminal case, your FREEDOM is at risk.

IN THE CIVIL CASE THERE ARE NO JURIES, No Plea bargaining, no fines, no jail time. There is only one question: "Was there probable cause to believe that you were operating a motor vehicle with a BAC (blood alcohol content) of .08 or more." If the answer is "yes," there is only one penalty: the automatic revocation of your license.

IN THE CRIMINAL CASE, THE STATE MUST PROVE beyond a reasonable doubt that you operated a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. You have the right to a trial by jury. We may be able to plea bargain. If you are convicted or plead guilty, you can be fined or jailed or both.

YOU PROBABLY HAVE A STRONGER DEFENSE THAN you think. It is never easy to beat a DWI charge in Missouri, but you probably have a stronger defense than you think. The police can make serious mistakes during a DWI arrest. We use those mistakes to defend you. Were your rights violated? Were you stopped without probable cause? Were the roadside tests administered properly? Was the breath test administered properly? We challenge the evidence every step of the way. We look for procedural errors that allow us to throw out evidence. We do everything in our power to win your case.

JACKIE HUNT AND HER TEAM DEFEND ALL TYPES OF DWI CASES:

First Offense: Many first offender cases can be resolved so that a conviction does not show on your record.

  • Abuse & Lose: The law is especially harsh for drivers under age 21. Minors can lose their license even if they are not operating a motor vehicle.
  • Felony DWI: If you are convicted of felony DWI, you will probably go to jail. Felony charges include DWI's that cause property damage or injury or death. Repeat offenses can be felonies as well as other charges arising out of intoxication-related traffic offenses.
  • DWI Involving Drugs: It doesn't matter if you use legitimate prescription drugs or illegal substances. A DWI involving drugs carries the same penalties as a DWI involving alcohol.
  • Multiple DWI charges result in higher penalties based on how many times you have been previously convicted. That's why it is so important to fight your first DWI charge as hard as you would if it were your second or third.
