St. Louis, Missouri (September 2018)-- The St. Louis, MO law firm [The People's Counsel](https://www.thepeoplescounsel.com/) is a criminal defense law firm that has found great success with their expanded services which now cover the areas of DUI and DWI which stand for driving under the influence and driving while intoxicated. The firm is run by Charles L. Barberio IV and his legal team. The expanded services were first announced back in July of 2018.
The Missouri Department of Motor Vehicles imposes severe penalties for individuals convicted of DWIs or DUIs. The legal limit in Missouri is 0.08 percent. This is defined as the blood alcohol concentration (BAC). That number is lower for drivers of commercial vehicles such as trucks. It is 0.04 percent. Minors have the lowest limit of all at 0.02 percent. While these numbers are an excellent guideline for law enforcement, there are a number of circumstances that can change the need for a DUI or DWI arrest.
[The People's Counsel](https://www.thepeoplescounsel.com/defense/driving-intoxicated/drivers-license-reinstatement/) launched its misdemeanor or felony DUI and DWI practice back in July as part of its ongoing criminal defense practice. The practice focuses on using research and review of documentation to obtain acquittals and "not-guilty" verdicts when drivers are arrested for DUIs or DWIs. The firm has a consistent success rate of fighting DWI and DUI cases in St. Louis County. Their expertise is in the area of after-DUI/DWI license reinstatement.
[The Law Offices of Charles L. Barberio](https://www.thepeoplescounsel.com/hardship-license-missouri/) IV also provides expert legal advice and trial representation across many different criminal charges, including drug crimes, violent crimes, murder, assault, theft, and other related areas.
According to a spokesperson for the St. Louis DUI defense attorney, "DWI and DUI offenses in the state of Missouri carry a stringent penalty. Our goal is to ensure that our clients' rights are upheld at all times especially in the circumstance of a wrongful arrest or possible conviction on improper grounds."
