DUI/OWI/DWI Lawyers in Merrillville Protect Your Future

Everyone makes mistakes. Whatever happened, what’s important now is protecting your future. Indiana’s DUI/OWI laws have severe consequences. It’s not a time to take chances. You need a lawyer with a proven record of success. You need one of our experienced Merrillville DUI attorneys.

At the Law Office of Weiss, Schmidgall and Hires, P.C., our criminal defense attorneys have more than a decade of experience keeping clients out of jail, on the road and not burdened with outrageous fines. If the police violated your rights or used faulty equipment, we might be able to get your case dismissed. If not, we’ll work to reduce your charges and shield you from jail time, heavy fines and the loss of your driving privileges. We can also protect your driving privileges and clean up your record with an expungement or record sealing. A traffic violation attorney who knows the process can help you make the best of this early opportunity to get your license back right away.

Our OWI lawyers do what they can to get you a hardship license so you can get back on the road and keep moving on with your life. New Indiana guidelines apply effective July 1st, 2019.

Keeping your CDL license
