Las Cruces DWI Defense


DWI/DUI Defense

If you have been charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI), you may feel hopeless and believe there is nothing you can do. Do not despair. There are defenses to the charge and you need an experienced, aggressive attorney on your side to protect your rights. Both Jeff and Terese Lahann are Las Cruces DWI defense lawyers with close to 50 years of combined experience prosecuting and defending DWI/DUI cases. We know what to expect from the prosecutor and are not afraid to aggressively fight to protect your rights. 

Do not delay!

Time is of the essence. Most likely when you were arrested, the officer took away your driver's license and/or issued you a Notice of Revocation. Your license is not revoked yet, but you must request a hearing with MVD within 10 days after arrest. We can take care of that for you, as long as you come see us within a day or two after your arrest. If you hire The Lahann Law Firm for your DWI case, we will represent you at the MVD License Revocation hearing.

Potential consequences of a DWI conviction.

A conviction for DWI in New Mexico carries life-changing and expensive consequences. Even a first time offender is facing:

  • Mandatory jail time.
  • A substantial fine.
  • Probation.
  • Suspension or revocation of your driver’s license.
  • Dramatic increase in your car insurance that will be in effect for several years.
  • A conviction on your record that you will have to report on job and loan applications for the rest of your life.
  • Possible child custody and visitation issues if you are divorced or in the process of getting a divorce.
  • Possible loss of your job. At a minimum, you will lose wages due to time off work to spend time in jail or appear in court.
  • An ignition interlock control device will be installed in your car requiring you to blow into it before your car will start.

You will also be required to pay court costs in addition to any costs associated with probation and the ignition control device. If you have a prior DWI conviction, the penalties are even greater.

But don't give up! Our firm is dedicated to winning your DWI case. If that can't be done, we will work hard to minimize the consequences to you and your family.
