Driving while ability impaired is a traffic infraction similar to a speeding ticket and, as a result, it is often the agreed upon reduction sought after by many defense lawyers and defendants.
However, in this age of increasingly stringent enforcement of DWI laws, the ability of defense lawyers to get such reductions is becoming more difficult. The unwillingness of prosecutors to offer reductions to charges such as DWAI is removing the plea bargain and is creating a system based on ever more trial practice.
In this contested environment, an offer by a prosecutor to reduce a charge many times has to be earned through the use of knowledge and experience. Furthermore, it is this same fundamental understanding of DWI defense techniques and law that allows an attorney to prevail in the courtroom.
