Experienced DWI Attorney

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a serious criminal charge that can affect your life for many years to come if convicted. That’s why finding the right legal assistance is so important when faced with a possible DWI conviction. Your attorney should have ample experience defending clients with similar charges. The right attorney will also be completely dedicated to upholding the law and preserving the rights of their clients.

I, Angela Arellanes, have spent the last 25 years providing solid criminal defenses to clients in Albuquerque facing the fights of their lives. My firm Angela Arellanes Law has experience with misdemeanor and felony DWIs, including aggravated DWIs which carry much stiffer penalties. I aggressively represent clients and ensure the court is aware of all pertinent details regarding your arrest, chemical testing, and possible rights’ violations so your best interests will be preserved.

Previous Successful Defenses Against DWI

When working with DWI clients in the past, I’ve helped get cases dismissed, charges reduced, and sentences decreased by meticulously reviewing all relevant factors. When questions arise, I can call bystanders to the stand whose version of events conflict with the arresting officers or enlist expert witnesses to call into question the conduct surrounding breathalyzer results or field sobriety testing. I’ll present your case in the best possible light so the court can make an informed decision.

If you’ve recently been charged with a DWI, the first step is to schedule a consultation with my firm. Contact me today for more information or call 505.247.2417 so we can get started on your criminal defense.
