Greensboro DWI Attorney

Experienced, Assertive DWI Representation in Guilford County

If you have been charged with driving while impaired (DWI) by alcohol or drugs, you probably have some serious concerns about the possibility of losing your license or going to jail. Hiring a skilled criminal defense attorney can help you protect your rights, your driving privileges and your freedom.

When you need an experienced Greensboro DWI lawyer, you can contact me, attorney Jim Kimel. As your advocate, I pursue each option and explore every aspect of your case to ensure your rights were protected. I am not afraid to take your case to trial if it means protecting your rights and retaining your driving privileges.

Protecting Your Rights and Freedom

Most DWI offenders do not go to jail unless they have previous convictions for drunk driving. However, if your blood alcohol content is above .08, your license will automatically be suspended for 30 days. Within that time, though, you can seek limited driving privileges for the last 20 of those 30 days. I can help you obtain temporary driving privileges and continue to represent your interests in both Guilford County traffic and administrative courts to retain your driver's license and privileges.

As a former four-term elected district attorney, serving a total of 14 years, I am well-known and respected by all 12 judges within the Guilford County district. Drawing on my in-depth knowledge of the local court system and my trial experience, I seek to obtain the best possible outcome on your behalf.

I am a firm believer in making the State prove its case against you. I thoroughly investigate each aspect of your case, asking questions like:

  • Did law enforcement officers have probable cause to stop your car?
  • Were you informed of your rights?
  • Were any field sobriety tests or Breathalyzer tests administered correctly?
  • Can the state prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were driving while impaired at the time of the traffic stop?

Depending on the answers to these questions, your charges could be significantly reduced or dismissed altogether. I will explore every available option in the court system, such as the First Offenders Program and other programs, to minimize the penalties against you.
