We Can Answer Your Questions About DWI

The consequences of a DWI conviction can affect you now and far into the future. If you are convicted of Driving While Impaired in North Carolina:


  • You can lose your license or have your driving privileges restricted — underage DWI can result in a person losing his or her license until he or she turns 21.
  • You can be forced to pay enormous fines and court costs.
  • You can be required to install — and pay for — an ignition interlock device if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was .15 percent or above.
  • Your car insurance rates may increase exponentially.
  • Your job and your reputation in the community can be compromised.
  • You can be sentenced to mandatory jail time for some DWI offenses, including repeat offenses.

Serious Charges Call For A Serious Defense

At Besen Law, we understand DWI charges from multiple perspectives. Prior to becoming an attorney, Ted Besen was a police officer for six years. Attorney Besen provides strong defense representation to clients who have been arrested for DWI, helping them:

  • Explore the basis — the probable cause — for the traffic stop that led to their arrest
  • Investigate and develop a strategy to address any “aggravating factors” — like an accident — that may complicate their case
  • Obtain limited driving privileges if this is their first DWI
  • Request deferred prosecution — which can keep a DWI off their record — if it is available
