DWI Attorney

When charged with this type of offense, two legal questions are important in determining how to handle your case. First, did the officer have a reasonable suspicion to stop your vehicle? Second, was there probable cause for your arrest? The answers to these questions can be the deciding factors between a guilty plea and a not guilty plea. Attorney Ryan B. Addison looks closely at these questions in every case to determine the best course of action.

Even if a guilty plea is appropriate, there are many factors that the court will consider in a DWI or DUI case to determine the appropriate punishment. Such factors include: the level of alcohol involved, prior convictions, and whether you had a valid license at the time of arrest. Attorney Ryan B. Addison will look at all of these factors and others to determine where you stand. Additionally, Ryan’s familiarity with the law and the local justice system can make a real difference. A DWI/DUI conviction can have fines as high as $4,000, and jail time in excess of two years. Because there is so much at stake and there are so many complexities, it is highly advisable to seek counsel. Call Ryan for help.

Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) Calculator

The BAC calculator gives only estimates of blood alcohol concentration and doesn't take into account all the factors that affect BAC. So you shouldn't rely on these estimates. If you’ve been drinking, let someone else drive.

One drink = 1.5 ounces of hard liquor, 12 ounces of beer, or five ounces of wine.
Blue = Impaired driver.
Red = BAC of .08% or greater a DUI/DWI in the state of NC.
