Kansas DUI Defense
A conviction for DUI (driving under the influence) can result in mandatory jail time, high fines, suspension of your driver’s license, and more. If you have been stopped for a DUI or a related crime, you need a skilled defense attorney familiar with the intricacies of the DUI statutes and experienced in challenging these charges.

The lawyers that comprise Joseph, Hollander & Craft’s DUI defense team have defended thousands of DUI cases with favorable success rates. Our team includes multiple former prosecutors with experience from the other side of the action. With offices in Wichita, Topeka, Lawrence, and Overland Park, we happily represent individuals in state and municipal courts all along I-35 and I-70—from the Oklahoma border to the greater Kansas City area.

Our DUI defense attorneys are trial attorneys. They know how to challenge the case against you and how to put evidence on in your defense. But they won’t wait until trial to begin your defense. When there are problems with the initial car stop, field sobriety tests, the arrest, or the results of any test measuring blood alcohol concentration, our attorneys attack the resulting evidence and the propriety of the charges at the earliest possible opportunity.

We know there are risks associated with litigation and a certain outcome may be the best one. Even if you decide you do not want to take your case to trial, it is important to have an experienced DUI attorney negotiate the best possible plea deal. Our attorneys know the information the prosecution will consider when evaluating a plea agreement and can help put you in a prime position to receive a more favorable sentence.

Our DUI defense team handles felony and misdemeanor DUIs, as well as license revocation proceedings. We know the impact of these actions can extend beyond your freedom, finances, and driving privileges and affect your family and career. We are committed to helping our clients manage their cases to achieve the best possible outcome under the circumstances. If you have been stopped for a DUI or related crime in Kansas, call us today.
