DUI / DWI DEFENSE ATTORNEY
DUI and DWI alcohol and drug arrests are taken very seriously in Vermont. Even first time arrests can carry harsh consequences. Clients may face jail time, the potential loss of driving privileges, and could be subject to major fines, court fees, and spikes in auto insurance premiums. These potential consequences call for an experienced defense.
At BarrSternberg, our attorneys have amassed more than 40 years of experience vigorously defending clients charged with DUI or DWI. Led by one of Vermont’s top defense attorneys, David Silver understands how the DUI / DWI process works, client rights, and the critical details that state attorneys must rely on to prove that clients were intoxicated or impaired when driving. The team has an in-depth understanding of the emerging science behind prosecutions for driving under the influence of marijuana or other drugs, having successfully challenged many DUI Drug prosecutions as well. Understanding that every case is unique, each of our defenses is tailored for our clients; every report and detail is considered as we prepare for the best possible defense. The results of our work have saved people from the ruinous consequences and have put the firm at the top of professional and client recognition for DUI defense excellence.
