You Need A Tough DUI Defense

DUI charges are the most serious criminal charges that most people will ever face. Too many people have misjudged how much they can safely drink and then got behind the wheel. An extra beer or glass of wine can make the difference between getting home safely and finding yourself facing criminal charges.

I am St. Louis DUI defense attorney Thomas Sandifer. I can help you protect yourself, your future and your driver's license from the very serious potential penalties of a DUI conviction. In my 25 years of practice I have served as a municipal judge, an assistant in the state attorney's office and a prosecutor. Seeing the courtroom from all sides helps me build cases that are designed to help my clients secure the best possible resolutions to the charges they are facing. Let me help you fight your drunk driving charges.

How Do You Fight DUI Charges?

Many people mistakenly believe that once the state has a BAC reading higher than .08 their case is as good as closed. This is not the case. There are many effective defense strategies that can win even the most difficult cases.

After you have been charged with DUI, you need to take action to defend yourself. What most people are not aware of until they have been charged is that there are two parts to a DUI:

  • Criminal charges — A criminal conviction can carry various penalties including jail for felony/repeat offenders.
  • Administrative process — You have 15 days to request a hearing where you can fight to prevent the suspension of your driver's license.
