Relentless Defense For DWI Charges

The penalties of a DWI are serious and may last long past the sentence a judge imposes. Some of the potential consequences affect every aspect of your life, both personal and professional.

But many DWI cases can be won. I know from personal experience. That hopeless case may not be hopeless. I am Jeff Eastman, an experienced and determined defense lawyer. My firm represents clients in all types of DWI/DUI cases, including first-time DWI offenders, repeat DWI offenders and DWI accidents cases.

Have you been arrested for DWI/DUI? It is imperative you act quickly and retain competent counsel to assist you. Call the Law Office of Keleher & Eastman at 816-452-6030.

No Stone Unturned When Protecting Your Rights

Mistakes are often made in the investigation and chemical testing process. A small oversight or omission can be the difference between prison and probation, a conviction and an acquittal, a DWI and a dismissal.

When I represent a client, I thoroughly review every aspect of the events leading up to the arrest and thereafter. I look for that omission or oversight. I look for trends in the law that may be beneficial to you. I consider sources outside Missouri for successful arguments and tactics.

Factors that may lead to a more favorable disposition or dismissal of a DWI charge include:

  • Lack of probable cause for the police to stop
  • Lack of probable cause for the police to arrest you
  • Improper administration of field tests
  • Inadmissible breath or blood tests
  • Unique personal characteristics, including biological and physiological issues which affect field testing and chemical results
  • Many other factual and legal issues

When it helps my client's case, I consult with experts in a variety of disciplines, including field testing, toxicology, pharmacology, physiology, ophthalmology, chemistry, accident reconstruction, statistical analysis and many others. I have developed these relationships to better assist the client serious about the defense of their case. This is critical when defending you!

You Need A Lawyer For Your First DUI Offense

Even if this is your first offense, you need to aggressively defend against the DWI/DUI accusation. If you already have a DWI conviction and are arrested again, you face substantially harsher punishments, including the possibility of jail, an extended loss of license, an ignition interlock device on any vehicle you operate and monitoring for alcohol consumption, all at your cost. Your third DWI in a lifetime may now be filed as a felony.

In some instances, 10 years after your first finding of guilt for certain alcohol-related offenses, you may be able to have all records of your arrest, plea, trial, finding of guilt and license sanction expunged.
