Catalano & Carpenter LLP


We are DWI Defense attorneys. We don't just handle the occasional DWI as a favor for friends or family.  

We represent motorists arrested and charged with DWI every day.  ​​​​

A DWI conviction, and in many cases even the mere arrest, can result in devastating consequences. Loss of or suspension from employment, bankrupting fines, surcharges and other fees, as well as the possible loss of freedom are all immediate concerns. But there are many other long term consequences from a DWI conviction that can continue to cause problems for the rest of your life. That's why you need and deserve an attorney who can not only properly defend you now, but also protect you from those future problems. ​
