Facing a DWI or Driving While Intoxicated charge in a Jefferson County, Missouri, can be a confusing experience. While many people believe that a single DWI conviction may not have much impact on your future, this charge can greatly hinder your ability to commute to work or school, obtain or keep employment and secure car insurance.
When facing DWI proceedings, it is beneficial to have the assistance of a knowledgeable lawyer who understands the process before you and the options you have for addressing your charges. At The Law Office of Jason A. Korner, I understand the challenges faced by individuals charged with DWI in Jefferson County.
My background working with the local prosecutor’s office in Hillsboro combined with my knowledge of the processes following a DWI arrest in these local courts has lead to successful results for my clients. This background allows me to provide the comprehensive and informative advice you need to combat the charges against you and limit the harm done to your wallet, your driving privileges and your freedom.
Whether you have been charged with a first offense DWI or have been through the DWI process before, I work diligently to help you protect yourself from unnecessary harm. Contact my office online or call 314-409-2659 to schedule a free consultation to discuss your specific charges.
Many DWI cases in Jefferson County will be handled in one of the municipal courts throughout the county. Most of the individual municipalities have a municipal court that can prosecute a DWI case, but there is also a municipal court for all of Jefferson County.
The Jefferson County Municipal Court is located on the third floor of 400 1st Street in Hillsboro, Missouri. Many Jefferson County DWI cases will end up in the Jefferson County Municipal Court because it is either a first or second offense and the arrest was made by a member of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department.
As an attorney, I strive to offer the detailed and supportive DWI defense representation you need to traverse the criminal and administrative Department of Revenue (DOR) hearings following your arrest. To that end, I appear with you or on your behalf at every court hearing as well as the hearing before the Department of Revenue regarding the possible suspension of your driving privileges. During both processes, I am always examining the case against you for information that can be used to have the charges against you reduced or even eliminated.
I also conduct a thorough examination of the events leading to your traffic stop and the officer’s actions during that stop, and will go as far as putting the officer on the witness stand during your trial. My training in the proper execution of DWI field sobriety tests allows me to ensure that you were given a fair opportunity during your stop and that all subsequent tests were completed to the letter of the law. I encourage you to explore both the Results and Testimonials pages, and please pay particular attention to the Jefferson County cases on the Results page.
Every case is different, but it is important in all cases that the individual facts and circumstances are investigated and analyzed for the best possible outcome. Please take advantage of the many pages on this site with useful information about DWI defense.
You can also call my office and ask for a copy of my book “Fear of the Unknown: A Guide to Surviving a DWI in Missouri.” The book is available on Amazon for $9.95, but if you call my office I will mail you a free copy.
