Learn How to Defend Against Your Charges
In Missouri, if you are found driving while intoxicated it does not matter if the police pulled you over legally or not—you can be prosecuted for DWI. The state has taken every measure it can to take down anyone even accused of drunk driving, which means you will need quality legal assistance from a Kansas City DWI lawyer to defend yourself. At Guilfoil Law Group, we feel that the state permits too much fallacious evidence to be permissible during a DWI case. Despite scientific studies that prove field sobriety tests unreliable, Missouri will convict defendants based on these grounds. We utilize aggressive litigation techniques to circumvent these outrageous practices.
