DWI and DUI Defense
The Gogel Law Firmhandles DWI and DUIs throughout Missouri and Illinois.

Our experienced DWI Lawyer in St. Louis will work with the prosecutor to lower the violation you were charged with or to get you the best possible outcome for your case.  

For most, a DWI or a DUI is the most serious offense they will ever encounter.  In Missouri, driving while intoxicated, or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol has harsh consequences - both on your driver's license and criminal record.  The consequences of a DWI can cause you to lose your license, your job, or even your freedom.  With such important things at stake, you need the highest quality representation available when dealing with a DWI.    

St. Louis DWI Attorney handles DWI defense with the highest priority - every case, every time.  I will personally do an extensive, full investigation into your situation. Our St. Louis DWI Lawyer employs multiple resources and all the time and attention necessary to help our clients achieve the best possible result when they choose to hire my firm for DWI or DUI legal representation. 

DWI and DUI cases are complex in nature, and at times can be confusing, especially for someone who is unfamiliar with the criminal justice system.  As an experienced
DUI Lawyer in St. Louis, we devote all the time necessary to sit down and explain all aspects of DUI representation to our clients.  I will personally keep you informed of all proceedings and developments throughout each stage of the case.

If you have been charged with driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you should consult with an attorney that handles
DWI defense and DUI defense as quickly as possible.  You have the right to challenge the decision to suspend or revoke your license for any alcohol related offense.  However, Missouri has extremely strict filing deadlines when it comes to drinking and driving violations.  Failure to meet these deadlines results in the loss of your license and any rights that you have to appeal or challenge the department of Revenue's decision to take your driving privileges.  

If you are alleged to have blown over the legal limit .08%, you and your attorney only have 15 days from the date of the stop in which to initiate proceedings to keep your license.  If you are accused of refusing to submit to a breath, blood, urine, or saliva test, you and your attorney have only 30 days to initiate proceedings to save you from a long-term license revocation.

A DWI or DUI actually consists of two separate cases

When you are charged with an alcohol related offense, you actually have two separate,

but extremely crucial matters to handle.  There is a criminal case against you which will

be charged either in a Municipal Court (for a first-time offense) or in the Circuit Court of the county where you were pulled over.  In addition to the criminal case there will also be a civil case where you are seeking to keep your license.

In Missouri the charge of driving while intoxicated is a very serious offense.  When you are facing charges for a DWI or DUI the prosecutor will make a charging decision based on several factors including whether or not you have any prior offenses, whether there was an accident, as well as other factors.  Consult with an experienced
DWI Lawyer in St. Louis anytime you may be facing DWI charges so that you can fully understand the charges you are facing.  

The following is a basic explaination of how DWI and DUI offenses in Missouri are characterized: (See RSMo 577.023; RSMo 558.011 for reference)

  • 1st offense (NO prior alcohol related contacts)
    • This is a Class B Misdemeanor with a range of punishment up to 6 months in county jail.
  • 2nd offense (a prior offender)
    • This is a Class A Misdemeanor with a range of punishment  up to one year in jail.
  • 3rd offense (a persistent offender)
    • This is a Class D Felony with a range of punishment up to 4 years in prison.
  • 4th offense (an aggravated offender)
    • This is a Class C Felony with a range of punishment up to 7 years in prison.
  • 5th and subsequent offenses (a chronic offender)
    • This is a Class B Felony with a range of punishment no less than 5 years and up to 15 years in prison

Whenever you are charged with a DWI or DUI in Missouri, whether in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, Jefferson County, St. Charles Counrt, or anywhere else in the state, you are at risk of losing your driver's license.  The Missouri Department of Revenue can suspend, revoke, or even issue a long term denial of your privilege to legally drive.  Our
St. Louis DUI Lawyer understands that the inability to drive causes extreme hardship resulting in loss of your job, ability to support yourself and your family, and many other harsh consequences that we want to avoid.  Often times the civil penalties from a DWI or DUI in St. Louis and the surrounding counties cause more problems than the criminal case.  That is why our DUI Lawyer in St. Louis is so committed to providing the best DUI representation available when we handle cases of this nature.

When you choose us to represent you for your DWI / DUI we will put our experience and expertise to work to help you achieve the best result possible so that you can retain your ability to drive, work, and support yourself and your family.
