Jefferson Parish, Louisiana DWI Defense

LA DWI Lawyer

Louisiana is home to many charming areas, especially along the Mississippi River. Jefferson Parish is certainly one of them, named for Thomas Jefferson due to his purchase of Louisiana from the French. Established in 1825, Jefferson Parish began as a farming town. Booming with residents, it then became the first suburb of New Orleans.

With historic districts, yearly festivals and parades, and many other attractions, Jefferson Parish is a fun place to visit as well as reside.

Even the most quintessential of suburbs are not immune to the toils of irresponsible drivers, though.  Irresponsibility comes in all forms—texting while driving quickly becoming the most common. It also comes in the form of a motorist driving home from the local festival after consuming one too many beers and, resulting in a DWI charge. Regardless of the situation, alcohol or drugs combined with a key and ignition is a recipe for disaster.

Drunk driving accidents are far too common throughout the state. Although the legal BAC is .08 percent in Louisiana, individuals still push the limits and create danger for themselves and others.  When intoxicated drivers are not caught and charged for DWI, an unsafe situation develops. Because of this, police officers in Jefferson Parish are cracking down on anyone they believe may be operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.

The penalties for such recklessness, such as mandatory jail time after a second DWI conviction, can affect your entire life—including career, finances, and social relationships.
