Always Fight Back Against Missouri DWI Charges

If you have been arrested for DWI in Missouri, you may feel embarrassed or ashamed. Do not assume you are guilty! Guilt is based on a violation of law. It is up to your attorney to evaluate your case based on the current laws.

At The Civella Law Firm, P.C., in St. Louis County, I have more than a quarter century of experience helping people who are facing DWI charges. I understand that this can be a difficult and trying time. I will treat you with dignity and respect throughout the process.

Drunk Driving Charges Involve Two Separate Proceedings

There are no stupid questions when you are facing a DWI charge. I strive to quickly and fully answer all of your questions and keep you informed as to the status of your case. To schedule a confidential consultation, contact my office.

If you have been charged with DWI, you will be subjected to two different proceedings:

  1. The Department of Revenue proceedings to determine if your license will be suspended and for how long
  2. The criminal proceedings that will determine whether you are convicted, fined or sentenced

I understand that the loss of a license can have tremendous impact on your ability to work, to care for your family and maintain order in your life. I will do everything in my power to save you the hassle of losing your license.

The Main Objective Is To Avoid A Conviction

When you hire me, you will get a lawyer who will request video of the DWI arrest, visit the scene of the arrest, require not just the alcohol influence report but also the maintenance records for the breath machine. Believe it or not, some attorneys are not this thorough, but they need to be in order to defend their client properly.
