Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), Underage Driving Under the Influence (DUI), and Traffic Offenses

Criminal Defense

DWI and DUI are serious charges in Arkansas, as they should be. In fact, the attorneys at Dodds, Kidd, Ryan & Rowan worked with legislators to write the current DWI laws as well as with Driver Control and law enforcement agencies to draft all of the rights forms that suspected drunk drivers sign during the arrest. If you are charged with DWI or DUI, you face mandatory jail time, steep fines, a suspended driver's license, installing an interlock in your vehicle (with installation and maintenance fees), increased insurance rates, and possible future employment issues. Also, DWI is also the only criminal charge in Arkansas where the prosecutor and judge are legally prohibited from dismissing the charge; you either plead guilty, or you go to trial.

Don't believe that being charged with DWI automatically means you should plead guilty. The attorneys at Dodds, Kidd, Ryan & Rowan bring more than 90 years of combined legal experience to help you aggressively defend against both felony and misdemeanor DWI charges. Our attorneys prepare every DWI case to go to trial and have a long track record of winning cases when other attorneys said it couldn't be done.

In addition to DWI charges, we can defend against moving violations, including:

  • Speeding tickets
  • Driving through school zones
  • Revoked or suspended license issues

With traffic violations, if we are unable to have your case dismissed entirely, we will do everything possible to negotiate with the prosecutor to keep an infraction off your record and keep your insurance rates low.

If you are a CDL driver We also understand how minor traffic violations can have huge impacts on your career. We will do everything possible to help you maintain your commercial driver's license (CDL) and keep you active within your vocation.

Our attorneys represent clients in Little Rock and throughout Arkansas.
