We Don’t Play to Lose

Anyone who follows sports knows the concept of “tanking” a game. For those not familiar, “tanking” is not putting forth full effort to get a better long-term reward. In other words, playing to lose. The Coffey Firm doesn’t play to lose! Mimi is a DWI Lawyer with 25 years of experience. She is board-certified in DWI Defense by the NCDD. Mimi knows what it takes to win. She conducts a full case evaluation before she even thinks about closing a case. Mimi wants to know you and your goals so she can serve your interests. In other words, The Coffey Firm knows that you are a unique individual, you are not a case number. Mimi and her team of DWI Lawyers and staff will provide you with the best representation possible.

What is a “win” in a DWI case?

Obviously, a win is a redemption of the charges. Typically, though, a “win” is satisfying the client’s goals. Like most other issues in criminal law, DWIs are not Black & White. All cases are different, and all clients are different. Sometimes the facts are favorable. Other times a win is a mitigation of damages. The Coffey Firm’s #1 goal is to achieve our client’s objectives.

It goes without saying that The Coffey Firm will always fight for a not guilty, a dismissal, or a reduction. However, a quick check with the county clerk of pretty much every county will show that only a handful of cases (around 2-3%) are reduced or dismissed per year. Any lawyer who promises or guarantees a dismissal or reduction is disingenuous.

Will I have to go to Jail on my DWI?

For a first-time DWI, we usually say that “you do not have to go to jail unless you want to.” This may sound like a strange answer but remember that each case is different and each client has different goals. Each client has a different “win” for us to fight for. Put in simpler terms, there are many alternatives to serving jail time, especially on a first-time DWI, if a conviction can’t be avoided. Mimi will go over all these options during the case evaluation and will give her recommendations. Remember, accomplishing your goals is a win in a DWI case.
