DWI/DUI

St. Louis DUI Attorneys

In MO and IL, there are two cases to any DUI or DWI case. There is a civil case, regarding your driver’s license only, and there is the criminal case, involving a possible conviction and jail time.

At Ochs & Klein Attorneys, P.C., our associates will interview you and conduct an initial investigation to determine the probability of success with taking certain aspects of your case or the whole case to trial. We will provide you with your options and let you know the costs of each option. Attorneys’ fees are only one part of any DUI / DWI case that are expensive. Court fines, probation fees, and increased auto insurance rates are all expensive. At Ochs & Klein Attorneys, P.C., we help you find the best option.

Messages from Patrick Ochs, Associate Attorney

Law enforcement increasingly has been cracking down on drunk drivers in Missouri and Illinois, in an effort to combat intoxicated drivers. More and more DWI checkpoints and traffic stops are being conducted across these states to address this problem. Drivers have little notice of the traffic stop or the possible legal ramifications that can result from a DWI arrest.

Often times, people who have been arrested and charged with a DWI are ordinary citizens who found themselves in a difficult situation and ended up being arrested. Frequently, it is not clear whether a driver is guilty or innocent. We understand the stress and anxiety that can occur following an arrest. We will ensure you are well informed of all the steps that need to be taken in fighting these charges.

A DWI conviction in Missouri’s carries the possibility of expensive fines, loss of license, jail time, and in certain circumstances - imprisonment. Additionally, there can be collateral consequences that extend far beyond any penalties imposed by the Court. This is a matter that can affect your livelihood, including keeping your job, your home and in some circumstances, even your marriage and the right to transport your children.

A DWI is one of the most difficult criminal cases to defend, because it is typically based on an officer’s direct observation, bolstered in many cases by so-called “objective” chemical testing. My job is to ensure that the prosecutor and the police do their job properly and that your rights are protected.

Since beginning my career as a criminal attorney, I have won countless cases for my clients by providing an aggressive defense at every stage. I proudly represent our firm’s clients, concentrating in DWI, including challenging the Department of Revenue’s suspension, revocation or denial of your driving privileges.

If you have been arrested for DWI, take decisive action and contact Patrick Ochs at (800) 491-1486, or send me an email at pochs@ochsklein.com.

    “You said you'd get all of the insurance money, and you did!”
    Hey Rich: Thanks for all of your help on my cases. All I wanted was my medical bills paid for and that insurance adjuster wouldn't help me with that and said I had to do it myself. So I hired you. You said you'd get all of the insurance money, and you did! Thanks for helping me with all of your advice, so I can retire too. Thanks again.
