You probably already know that you’ll lose your license at least temporarily, and may have to pay fines. But did you know that you may also be required to perform community service, tolerate home monitoring and even go to jail?
If you go to jail, this may be a giant hurdle the next time you apply for a job. It might even cause you to lose the job you already have.

With years of experience and advanced training, and a history of winning, Robert McMillin is an aggressive defender of your rights. His credentials, training and passion for justice combine for a powerful defense that gets results.
James Bates has extensive experience and training in Gas Chromatography, with the same machines used in the Louisiana Crime Lab when they examine drug or alcohol tests. That training allows him to find problems or errors in the analysis protocol and procedures.
Dubious or incorrect blood test results may move the judge to throw the case out and excuse the defendant. When test results are faulty, you may be able to walk free out of the courtroom that day.
Louisiana DWI laws spell out harsh punishments
For Jefferson Parish residents, the penalties for driving while intoxicated are steep. And if you are arrested more than once for DWI, the punishments increase with every additional offense. You may be required to:
- Install an ignition interlock device on your car
- Wear an ankle monitoring device
- Attend a substance abuse program
- Spend up to a year in jail
You may even be stripped of your driver’s license – permanently if you have a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL).
