In North Carolina, it is illegal to drive a motor vehicle after having consumed enough alcohol that you have an alcohol concentration of .08 or higher or while you are under the influence of an impairing substance. It is a harsh fact that the vast majority of DWIs result in conviction. If you have been arrested for DWI you are not on a level playing field. The system has stacked the cards against you. It is extremely important for you to be represented by a DWI defense attorney.
