DWI Attorney Serving Asheville, North Carolina

Finding Solutions for Your DWI Case

Most people have had one too many at some point or another, but that makes no difference to law enforcers. The law is not set up to be kind to people caught driving while impaired. That is why you need an experienced lawyer able to find the best solution in your DWI issue.

I started the Law Office of Attorney Eugene W. Ellison more than 30 years ago to help people from my Asheville, North Carolina, community defend against and optimally resolve driving-while-intoxicated charges. As my attorney profile indicates, I know this area of law and our local system well. Contact me today for vigorous and knowledgeable defense against your DWI charge.

DWI Law in North Carolina

North Carolina has strict drinking and driving laws, and you should know your rights and obligations:

  • The legal limit is .08 percent blood alcohol level. Above that, you can be found guilty of drunk driving.
  • If you refuse to take a breathalyzer, you will lose your license for up to a year, even on a first offense.
  • After taking a breathalyzer, you have the right to get a blood draw as a second opinion from your own doctor. This is good advice if you have any question about the accuracy of the test, but you need to have any additional testing done right away.

I make sure I know your case comprehensively, so that I can negotiate the best deal possible for you.

Experience with DWI

Twenty-five years of defending against DWI charges has taught me to be focused and smart when handling these cases. When I represent you as a new client, I begin a strong and thorough investigation of your case immediately. Some cases are better to take to trial, while others more logically call for negotiating the lowest possible sentence. I make sure to promptly and comprehensively investigate all the facts relating to your charge, so that you get the best deal possible.
