A DWI could cost you your reputation, career, occupation and driving license. You are facing the possiblity of a lifetime of shocking surprises ahead; job, insurance and family issues. Here is where I come into play. You need to speak with someone who knows the subject, someone who can speak with you about this matter privately.
