Helping You Protect Your Right To Drive After A DUI/DWI Arrest

After a DWI/DUI arrest in Missouri, you face two legal hurdles — a criminal charge and a separate civil license sanction. The legal issues in all drunk driving cases are complex. You should never leave your fate in the hands of the judge, prosecutor or an inexperienced defense lawyer. You need vigorous legal representation as soon as possible to protect all of your personal freedoms and privileges.

I am Jeff Eastman of the Law Office of Keleher & Eastman. I am an attorney with more than 20 years of experience helping people accused of DWI/DUI understand their rights. I know the various ways to fight DWI charges, and I will fight for your rights and freedom.

After a DUI/DWI arrest, you have a short amount of time to act to protect your rights, perhaps as few as 15 days from the date of your arrest. Call me at 816-452-6030 for help challenging the loss of your license.

What Will Happen To Your Driver's License After An Arrest?

My firm can represent you in the administrative hearing, which is an opportunity to challenge the suspension. During this process, I will fight to prevent the suspension or revocation of your driving privileges. If you meet certain criteria, I will assist you in obtaining a limited or hardship driving privilege, providing you a way to legally drive to work, school or other necessary places.

Like the penalties that follow a DWI conviction or guilty plea, license sanctions become more serious with each subsequent DUI or DWI. They are as follows:

  • First-time conviction for DWI: 30-day revocation, 60-day suspension, able to apply for reinstatement after 90 days
  • Second conviction within five years: One-year revocation, no eligibility for a limited or hardship license
  • Refusal to take a breath, blood or urine test: One-year revocation
  • First-time underage driver: 90-day license suspension

After a suspension of your right to drive, I can help you with the process of reinstating your license. Expensive fines and various consequences, including the loss of your driver's license, can threaten your career and lifestyle. You owe it to your future to have aggressive legal representation by your side.
