A DWI Charge Can Put Your Life on Hold

When it comes to DWI in Texas, even a criminal charge alone can derail your life. A single arrest can seriously jeopardize your job, your freedom, and your reputation. If you have been arrested for drunk driving, you can’t afford to delay your defense. Because the penalties for DWI are harsh, you need an attorney who knows how to aggressively defend your rights.

Although I believe that no one should get behind the wheel without being completely in control, I also ardently believe that everyone deserves a chance to contest unfair and inaccurate charges. I have the knowledge and experience to help you defend yourself so you can regain your freedom and get on with your life.

You Can Be Charged Without Going over the Legal Limit

Many people mistakenly believe that you can only be arrested if you go over the “legal limit.” Although Texas law sets the DWI threshold at a .08 blood or breath alcohol concentration, police can also arrest you if they determine you are too impaired to drive. This means you can be arrested and charged with DWI regardless of the amount of alcohol in your blood.

It is important to remember, however, that driving with alcohol in your system is not an automatic crime. As long as you’re not impaired, it is not illegal to drive home after a casual drink with friends or a glass of wine at a restaurant. Many people are wrongfully accused and unjustly prosecuted simply for having a little alcohol on their breath. If you have been arrested unfairly, you need a lawyer who can tell your side of the story and protect your rights under the law.

Punishments Are Severe

Because drunk driving causes countless injuries and fatalities each year, lawmakers have created increasingly severe penalties for DWI convictions. First offenders can be fined up to $2,000, sentenced to up to 180 days in jail, and lose their license for up to one year.

Two-time offenders can be fined up to $4,000, spend up to one year in jail, and lose their license for up to two years.

Offenders with three convictions face a $10,000 fine, up to 10 years in prison, and the loss of their license for up to two years. Additionally, whether you’re on your first conviction or your fourth, you must pay an annual license reinstatement fee.

Defending Your DWI Case

If you have been charged with a DWI, there are many ways to defend your case. The truth is, police officers are human beings who sometimes make mistakes. Many arrests take place at night, when eyesight is compromised and perception is often far different than reality.

Tired, overworked officers have been known to incorrectly administer field sobriety tests that lead to false arrests. Additionally, faulty equipment and improperly trained technicians can produce inaccurate breathalyzer and blood test results.

Federal Criminal Defense

Defended countless clients accused of federal crimes. As an experienced federal litigator, I know how to assemble an effective defense for high profile crimes.

Drug Possession

Because drug possession is a serious crime that can result in life-changing penalties, it is absolutely imperative to work with a Texas criminal defense lawyer who understands the law in this area.

White Collar Crimes

Because these types of cases are often subject to both state and federal prosecution, it is important to work with a lawyer who is comfortable defending a case at any level.
