Bertie County, North Carolina, DUI Arrest Penalties: Lawyers Fighting for You

If you are convicted for drunk driving in North Carolina, you could face a mandatory one-year suspended driver’s license, mandatory substance abuse assessment (and treatment, if recommended in your assessment), fines, and jail time. However, at Pritchett & Burch, we fight to minimize the consequences against you by fiercely challenging the evidence:

  • We question probable cause for the DUI/DWI arrest
  • We challenge Breathalyzer calibration and reliability
  • We demonstrate unreliability of certain field sobriety tests
  • We obtain independent chemical testing, when necessary
  • We analyze police reports
  • We challenge checkpoint stops

We put our criminal defense experience to work in order to find holes in the case against you, and use that to our advantage when negotiating a favorable outcome that preserves your interests.
