The traffic laws in Indiana are often complicated and confusing. From license suspensions to possible jail time, there are many traps to be avoided. Wilson Law Office works hard to make sure you never fall into one of those traps.


In Indiana, there are two basic Operating While Intoxicated Charges or OWI DUI charges. One is simply Operating While Intoxicated, while the other is Operating a Motor Vehicle with a blood alcohol content in excess of the legal limit (.08%). Any drinking and driving offense in Indiana begins with those two basic offenses.

There are some very important, little known SECRETS that can make a huge difference in the outcome of the case. At Wilson Law Office, we can explain those secrets to you and find out if they will help in your case. The results can be amazing if they do.

One of the most important aspects of OWI/DUI cases surrounds a driver's license suspension. In most Misdemeanor cases, the license suspension must run from 90 days to 2 years. Despite that, in the right circumstances, a license suspension can be shortened to as little as 30 days. Call right away to find out if that is a possibility for you.

In Felony OWI/DUI cases, the license suspension usually must run from 1 year to 2 years. One law, however, can change that license suspension so that it runs for 10 YEARS!! Call Wilson Law Office right away to make sure this does not happen to you.

As with all criminal offenses, the first question almost everyone asks is "Will I go to jail?" To begin with, if the OWI/DUI is a misdemeanor, the maximum jail time you face is ONE YEAR. It can be less than that, and in most circumstances, that time is all suspendible. In Felony OWI cases, the possible jail time is even longer. To protect against having to spend time in jail, contact Wilson Law Office right away. We will bring all our experience and knowledge to work to achieve the lightest sentence possible in your situation!
