OWI Charge Reduced to Careless Driving
"Handling my own OWI would have guaranteed me a conviction, but Joseph Awad defended me in corners I never would have thought to look. My first phone call to him set the tone; he helped to gain perspective and move forward with my defense. I was initially offered a lesser charge of visually impaired driving, which was still financially, legally and personally onerous to accept. Attorney Awad was crucial in helping me understand all my options and outcomes, not just the one offered to me. On my own, I would've accepted this lesser charge as well, but on Attorney Awad's advice--honest and impartially given-- I pursued a further reduction of charges. Attorney Awad was spot on. He successfully argued for reducing my OWI to careless driving, a harmless traffic offense."
