Stephen M. Smith & Associates provides experienced and skilled defense for clients charged with drunk driving. If you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI), sometimes referred to as driving under the influence (DUI), we can help you. We can defend you from criminal charges and help you save your license after an arrest. If you have been arrested for DWI you MUST immediately request an administrative hearing to prevent your license from being suspended 30 days after your arrest. Failure to request this hearing timely will result in you losing the right to contest the automatic suspension.
Everybody comes to New Orleans for a good time; however, sometimes that time turns out bad. When you are arrested for municipal crimes such as fighting on Bourbon Street, Drunk in Public, Trespassing, etc. contact us immediately. We will provide you with the best representation and if you are from out of town we can often times resolve any legal issues without the need for your presence in Court.
Traffic citations left unattended are a great way to ruin your day. When you get a ticket let us represent you. In most cases we will get your charges dropped or reduced without the need for your appearance in Court. In any event, our fee will be less than the fine should you pay the ticket without our representation. In addition, we will work to prevent a moving violation from appearing on your driving recordwhenever possible.
We offer the best resolution of a bad situation before it gets worse.
