Lawyers That Will Protect Your Rights


Your DUI or DWI charges can fall under a host of aggravating factors that can affect the severity of your case. What does the state of North Carolina consider to be aggravating factors? These factors range from a previous DWI conviction within seven years of the current charge; driving impaired while your driver’s license is revoked; serious injury to another individual while driving impaired; and driving impaired accompanied by a disabled person who is unable to exit the in the vehicle without assistance. Other aggravating factors include, but are not limited to a blood alcohol level of .15 or more within a reasonable period of time after you were stopped; reckless or negligent driving; and a reportable accident that occurred as a result of driving negligently.


Mitigating factors can also influence your sentencing. The DUI defense attorneys at Ivey McClellan will ensure proper consideration is given to all the mitigating factors available to you. These include, but are not limited to, slight impairment due only to alcohol but with a blood alcohol level of .09 or less; driving while impaired but safely otherwise (no speeding, recklessness, or negligence); a safe driving record; impairment determined to be caused by the ingestion of the correct dosage of a lawfully prescribed drug; and voluntary completion of a substance abuse assessment, compliance with its recommendations, and proof of abstinence from alcoholic consumption for 60 consecutive days.

Keep the Experienced Professionals At Your Side 

It’s the state’s responsibility to pursue DUI actions against individuals who have been charged for the offense. The state has considerable resources on their side to pursue these ends, including a team of District Attorneys, Assistant District Attorneys, and police officers. When you get charged with a DUI or DWI, make sure you receive assistance and guidance from a DUI law firm with decades of experience helping individuals mitigate or eliminate the charges brought against them.
