Shelby County DUI/DWI Lawyers

All too many people consider DUI/DWI charges to be a minor offense, even a common one. Many people will simply plead guilty. This idea is widespread and dangerous. A DUI/DWI conviction can have long-lasting and even disastrous effects on your personal or professional life, and can even destroy educational or housing opportunities. Even in the most minor of cases, it is almost always in your best interest to partner with an attorney to understand your rights and the charge against you, and to work toward an outright dismissal or mitigated consequences.

If you or someone close to you has been charged with a DWI or DUI in Tennessee, get in touch with The Childress Firm, PLLC, as soon as possible.

Memphis Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys

We at The Childress Firm, PLLC, are ready to put our extensive litigation and criminal defense experience to work to aggressively advocate for you in any felony or misdemeanor DUI/DWI case. It is important to realize that a first-offense conviction will cost a minimum of $450 (up to $1500) and a one-year license revocation. If you refuse the breathalyzer test, it will be an automatic license revocation regardless of the outcome of the criminal case. With each subsequent conviction, the fines jump up (all the way to a maximum of $15,000 for a fourth DUI), in addition to probation, school, mandatory treatment assessment, possible interlock devices and license revocations (up to six years). None of this takes into account insurance rates and the effect that a DUI conviction will have on background checks.

Our lawyers will use our experience in comprehensive investigation and discovery tactics to fully understand your case. From there we will attack absolutely any weakness in the prosecution's case. If we cannot reach an outright dismissal, we may be able to bargain the charge down to a "wet reckless" charge or mitigate consequences in another way. We strongly encourage you to protect your rights and future by getting in touch with The Childress Firm, PLLC, as soon as possible.
