If you or a loved one is facing a Des Peres DWI, DUI, or other criminal defense matter, attorney James P. Feely, Jr. can help.

The City of Des Peres is located within St. Louis County, Missouri.  The City Hall and court is located at 12325 Manchester Road Des Peres, MO 63131.

The Des Peres Police Department is a well-trained police force that strictly enforces the laws in their jurisdiction. 

The officers make arrests for DWI, drug possession, assault, and many other offenses. 

If you have a DWI charge, Mr. Feely will help you by fighting for your rights in both the criminal offense and also the resulting DOR administrative matter.

You will have an administrative case that involves DOR if your BAC tested .08 or higher, or if you refused the breath or blood test.

When you have a DWI charge you must act quickly to protect your driving privileges. 

The Missouri Department of Revenue can suspend your license for a BAC test result of .08 or higher - and this can take place 15 days after you are arrested under certain circumstances.

A person can also be arrested and charged for a DWI if they are under the influence of a drug instead of alcohol.

This type of DWI charge is sometimes referred to as a DUI. 

If arrested for a DUI, the police can request a blood or urine test from the arrested driver.

The police will generally ask for a blood test instead of a urine test, because a blood test is more accurate in detecting the level of the active drug in your system at the time the sample is taken. 


Missouri does not have a set standard that dictates what exact amount of a drug in your system creates a presumption of intoxication. 


This is unlike alcohol DWI cases, where a .08 blood alcohol content is the set legal standard for presumption of intoxication.  

​In other words, there is no standard similar to the ".08 level" in drugged driving (DUI) cases.
