We are quite possibly the only DWI Law Firm in Missouri, if not the Country, that gives any indication on-line as to our pricing structure. Pricing truly hinges on which of the 100+ courts that your legal matter is under the jurisdiction of.

Each and every court has it's own approach to a DWI charge which has a direct impact on pricing.

At Carter Law Offices, LLC (operator of DwiCenter.com and DidYouBlow.com) our approach is very different than nearly any other competing DWI focused firm. Regardless of what you have paid upon engaging our services, we un-turn every single stone that might reveal a weakness in the prosecution's case.

You will have an eyes-wide-open awareness of your case before you make any permanent decisions.

You may choose to do depositions of your arresting officer(s), hire an expert to call procedures into question, appeal a bad administrative decision (which we do all of the time) and many other things that most occasional DWI attorneys may not even know are options.

There is no chance that you can achieve the best outcome in your case unless you have an attorney that knows Missouri DWI law back, forward, up and down.

We are the only DWI firm in St Louis whose lead attorney/former Judge faced his own DWI and was found innocent by a jury of 12 in 9 minutes.
