Rowdy Williams – DUI attorney serving Terre Haute

Serious Consequences. Drunk driving charges, including OVWI/ DUI alcohol or drugs, are prosecuted aggressively by prosecutors in the Wabash Valley. If you have been charged with DUI, knowing your rights and retaining an experienced and skilled Terre Haute DUI lawyer to evaluate your case is critical. The punishment for drunk driving is serious and can include jail time, fines, outpatient and in-patient treatment programs, and a lengthy driver’s license suspension. Even when you eventually are eligible to get your driver’s license back, you could end up paying thousands of dollars in high-risk insurance premiums. If you are convicted of a second dui or drunk driving offense, you may face a felony charge.

Typical Police Reports. As a former deputy prosecutor, Rowdy knows that law enforcement gathers evidence for potential DUI cases in a variety of ways. Even prior to pulling you over, an officer typically wants to witness firsthand his or her first-hand your driving, and report to the judge if you were weaving in and out of traffic, traveling at a high rate of speed or driving in some other reckless or unsafe manner. When you are pulled over, the police will observe all of your actions. A delay retrieving or dropping your license can be reported as fumbling. If you are nervous or you have sat in your vehicle for a long period of time and brace yourself as you get out of the car, the police may state that you were unsteady on your feet. The law enforcement official typically will shine a bright light into your eyes and state that your eyes were glassy and bloodshot. These statements in police reports are frequent and standard in a dui report. Terre Haute DUI attorney Rowdy Williams have handled hundreds of OVWI/DUI/Drunk Driving cases. He is experienced in cross-examining the witnesses to counter the impact of the aforesaid testimony.

Challenging Evidence. In the event you have failed a Breathalyzer test, there are ways to fight dui charge in court of law. There are certain standards and procedures that law enforcement must be comply with before giving the Breathalyzer test. Our Terre Haute Drunk Driving attorneys thoroughly understands the law, therefore we can provide good legal analysis regarding the admissibility of the test. Rowdy and his colleagues have been successful in keeping this type of evidence out. Our attorneys have also challenged the stops themselves. Whether your case involves an accident, a Breath Test failure and/or guilty statements made to the police, you should still seek the counsel of an experienced dui lawyer to help you stay out of jail.

Benefits of Filing with a bankruptcy attorney. There are tremendous benefits of filing for bankruptcy. In most cases you can keep all of your property and get a fresh start. Here are some of the great benefits of filing bankruptcy:

  1. Most clients keep all of their property.
  2. It Stops Foreclosure.
  3. It Can Stop Car Repossessions.
  4. It Can Eliminate Certain Tax Debts.
  5. It Can Eliminate Credit Card Debt.
  6. It Can Eliminate Medical Debt.
  7. It Can Stop Wage Garnishments And Lawsuits.
  8. In Some Cases It Can Lower Your Car Payment.
  9. It Stops Creditor Harassment.

Desire a Credit Score of 700? A big misconception that some of my clients make, is that filing with a bankruptcy attorney will ruin their credit score forever. The fact is, filing bankruptcy with a qualified bankruptcy law firm may be the only way to improve their credit score. A lot of debtors have bad credit due to a divorce, job firing or unexpected medical expenses. People have been misled (typically from the credit card companies) regarding people ruining their credit after they file with a bankruptcy lawyer. The following are the facts:

  1. While filing chapter 7 bankruptcy will remain on your credit report for a 10-year period and chapter 13 bankruptcy will stay on for 7 years, it does not take ten years to reestablish your credit score. There has been a study that states that 96% of debtors were offered new credit after one year of filing bankruptcy.
  2. You can get credit again! While improving your credit does not happen magically, we will walk you through the steps you need to take. The credit types that people want after a bankruptcy are new car loans, credit cards and home loans. A lot of my clients expressed to me that they are offered credit card and vehicle loan offers after securing their discharge. The reason for this is they are a good credit risk! My clients have discharged and gotten rid of a huge amount of debt which was making them a poor credit risk. By getting rid of the debt and freeing up disposable income they become more attractive to lenders. In addition, people cannot file a bankruptcy petition again for a long time. I am aware of car lenders that may provide finance cars right after you file bankruptcy.
  3. By virtue of the fact that credit scores are weighted greater towards recent activity and not mistakes you have made in the past, a person that is timely on paying his/her or debts after bankruptcy and handles their other financial decisions in a reasonable and prudent manner, should expect to notice an improved credit score within twelve months after they file. The notion that a person who chooses bankruptcy relief will sentence you to a reality where you cannot get credit is just not correct!
