Intoxication Offenses

Facing intoxication charges is distressing, and a conviction can have a lasting impact on your ability to drive, work, and hold professional licenses. Powerful lobby groups such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving encourage a zero-tolerance attitude toward all intoxication offenses. As a result, consequences for these types of charges can be severe, including strict probation, prison time, and major fines. If a person was injured or killed as a result of an accident, punishments are even harsher.

Because of the influence of powerful interest groups, prosecutors avoid dismissing intoxication cases unless a skilled defense attorney leaves them no other choice. Judges fear being portrayed as “soft on crime,” and are strict when it comes to intoxication offenses.

Being charged with an intoxication offense does not mean you are guilty, or that a jury will convict you. An expert defense lawyer can bring knowledge and expertise to vet law enforcement's claims and counter the prosecution's arguments.

At the Neal Davis Law Firm, we are certified experts in administering and evaluating the roadside sobriety tests that officers perform on those suspected of intoxication, and we know that the machines and tests used to determine blood-alcohol content can be faulty or produce unreliable readings that are inadmissible in court.


As top DWI lawyers, we understand the complex laws that apply in different types of intoxication cases, and we know how to investigate and prepare each case accordingly. We have obtained favorable outcomes for many defendants charged with DWI, including professionals for whom discretion is critical, as well as in intoxication manslaughter cases. Here are some of our success stories:

  • CASE DISMISSED for an executive whose breath test was equivalent to a blood alcohol level of over .08%
  • CASE DISMISSED for a student who drove the wrong way down a street and hit another car, and whose blood-alcohol level tested over .08%
  • CASE DISMISSED for a small business owner whose blood-alcohol level tested over .08%
  • CASE DISMISSED for a professional whose blood-alcohol level tested over .08%
  • CASES NO-BILLED (grand jury refused to indict) in multiple intoxication manslaughter cases
  • PROBATION for young professional charged with intoxication manslaughter

WARNING: IF YOU HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH DWI, YOU ONLY HAVE 15 DAYS AFTER NOTIFICATION OF A DRIVER'S LICENSE SUSPENSION TO REQUEST A HEARING AND CHALLENGE THE SUSPENSION.

He focused on listening and helping, not just explaining his fees
Client needed representation for a child sex abuse case that was complex and needed an attorney who understood the full extent of the law.

" Neal represented our son and the case against him was dismissed, while other attorneys we consulted primarily focused on explaining their fees and pushed us to settle. Neal took time to understand our needs and truly appreciate our values and to convey to the Court, the District Attorney and the Judge the true essence of the case details and the circumstances of how our son was himself victimized, versus treating us as another case. He saw the case through to the utmost extent of the law, so our son, who is an honor student, was completely exonerated, and he made sure that support and professional help were in place during the experience. He declined the court's offer of a 2-year probation and pushed harder with the D.A. even though we had already paid him his fees. Most attorneys would have simply walked away at that point; however, Neal wasn't satisfied with the results and had the case reset since he knew it was not a fair result for my son. In the end, the case was dismissed. "
