Experience Counts When The Stakes Are High

A DWI Conviction Has Serious Consequences

A DWI charge may not seem like a severe offense, but it is a crime that the state of West Virginia takes very seriously. One conviction can affect your career and reputation for years.

I, defense attorney John J. Balenovich, am prepared to work hard to:

  • Get the criminal case against you dropped
  • Get charges and penalties reduced
  • Help you obtain alternative sentencing such as substance abuse treatment

I will also help you fight to keep your driving privileges.

You should contact John J. Balenovich Law Offices, LC, in Charleston if you face misdemeanor or felony charges such as:

  • First-offense DUI or DWI
  • Felony DUI or DWI (for example, repeat offenders or vehicular homicide cases)

Do not disregard the seriousness of a drunk driving charge. The consequences of a drunk driving offense conviction can include:

  • Fines
  • A suspended or revoked license
  • Probation and community service
  • Mandatory drug or alcohol treatment
  • Jail time

Remember that a criminal record is a heavy burden to carry. It is worth your best efforts to avoid a misdemeanor or felony conviction. John J. Balenovich Law Offices, LC, is here to provide the defense you need.

Yes, You Can Fight A DWI Or DUI

You may think that the police have an open-and-shut case against you, but this is not likely true. It is still possible to fight a DUI or DWI, even if you failed a roadside sobriety test or blew a Breathalyzer over the legal limit of .08. I have successfully disputed these charges and gotten DWI penalties removed or reduced for many of my clients. In fact, merely having an experienced lawyer in your corner can motivate the prosecution to offer a better sentence or plea deal.
