Defending Mississippi DUI/DWI charges

Those charged with a Mississippi DUI/DWI face criminal penalties and other long-term consequences, such as driver's license suspension, fines, probation and jail time. The severity of the penalties depends on the circumstances of the DUI offense, the offender's driving history and whether the offender had previous DUI charges.

Christopher G. Holt Attorney at Law provides aggressive criminal defense for those facing drunk driving charges in Gulfport and throughout Mississippi. He represents those accused of all types of DUI offenses, including first-time offenses, multiple offenses, felony DUI and DUI drugs. Attorney Holt uses proven strategies to achieve favorable outcomes such as examining all aspects of the stop, arrest, field sobriety test and breath test.

Police must have reasonable suspicion to stop vehicles and to arrest individuals for a DUI. If a police officer pulls over a driver without a legitimate reason, all evidence subsequently obtained may not be admissible in court. Officers must have probable cause for arrest and must properly administer field sobriety tests. The three tests that have been standardized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are the walk and turn, the one-leg stand and the horizontal gaze nystagmus. Police officers may also administer a portable breath test to see if the driver's blood alcohol level is over the legal limit of .08 percent.

At Christopher G. Holt Attorney at Law, we are dedicated to providing those facing Mississippi DUI/DWI charges with effective defense representation for both criminal and administrative proceedings. Attorney Holt helps DUI/DWI clients avoid criminal convictions and protect their drivers' licenses.
