When you are facing criminal charges, the full weight and resources of the police, prosecutor and the state are against you. You need an experienced defense lawyer to protect your rights and fight for your freedom in court. Depending on your circumstances, you may also need an advocate who can help you protect your professional reputation, educational career, future employment opportunities, or immigration status.
We handle misdemeanor and felony cases in Benton, Washington, Carroll, and Madison Counties including theft, assault, battery, juvenile offenses, drug charges, including possession, distribution, and manufacturing, domestic violence and protection orders, and sex crimes.
DWI/DUI and Traffic Offenses– When you are charged with a DWI/DUI charge you are facing legal battles in both the criminal courts for your freedom and with the administrative proceedings for your driver’s license. Even for a first offense the penalties can range from one day to one year in jail, up to a $1,000 fine, and a 6 month suspension of your driver’s license. The stakes are much higher for subsequent drunk driving offenses. Having a qualified attorney represent you, even on a first offense, can help you find weaknesses in the state’s case against you to win your case or help you negotiate the best possible plea terms.
At Meister & McCracken Law Firm PLLC we help you with both the criminal drunk driving charges, as well as the driver’s license revocation hearings. Arkansas does not allow the prosecutor to reduce the charges of a DWI and only gives you 7 days to begin administrative proceedings for your driver’s license. This means early, competent representation is very important.
We can also help with any other traffic violations or tickets, from speeding to driving on a suspended license or CDL tickets.
