A drunk driving conviction can lead to jail time, the loss of your drivers license, fines, probation, and a criminal record that will follow you forever.  Every year, DWI laws become more complex and you need a dedicated, skilled DWI lawyer who stays on top of the growing complexity of DWI laws.  Your DWI case is far too important for you to simply give up and turn over your drivers license.   Don't accept a guilty plea as foregone conclusion. 

Gordon Glaus began his legal career trying DWI cases as a prosecutor. He worked with law enforcement to build cases and get DWI convictions.  Gordon Glaus now uses this insight and experience to attack DWI cases and successfully defend his DWI clients, resulting in numerous acquittals at trial.  He has attended countless hours of continuing education and legal training to better defend his clients facing DWI charges.  Gordon Glaus has also appeared as a featured speaker at the Missouri Bar's Annual DWI Law and Science Seminar.
