How Do I Find The Best DUI/DWI Lawyer?

While you are perfectly free to represent yourself against a trained and skilled prosecutor from the District Attorney’s office, you would be doing yourself a great disservice to go it alone. The range of punishment and various fines and penalties for a DWI conviction are too severe to take lightly.

First Offense:

a) Minimum jail: three days to 180 days in jail

b) Fines and penalties: up to $2,000 (unless a child under 15 is in the car)

c) License suspension: 90 to 365 days

Second offense

a) Minimum jail: 30 days to 1 year in jail

b) Fines and penalties: up to $4,000 (unless a child under 15 is in the car)

c) License suspension: 180 days to 2 years

d) Ignition interlock device on your vehicle: yes

Third Offense

a) Minimum jail: up to 2 years in jail

b) Fines and penalties: up to $10,000

c) License suspension: 180 days to 2 years

d) Ignition interlock device on your vehicle: yes

In addition to the above-stated fines and penalties, the state of Texas will also assess various surcharges on your driver’s license. An experienced DWI attorney will thoroughly examine and scrutinize every action of law enforcement to protect your rights and your freedom. Did law enforcement have probable cause to pull you over in the first place? Should a motion to suppress be filed? Did law enforcement properly administer the field sobriety tests? Was the breath test and/or blood test administered properly and did they follow proper procedures?

Many times, innocent people will be wrongly arrested for driving while intoxicated because of subjective factors like having the smell or odor of alcohol about the person, or the field sobriety tests were not administered correctly. The failure to administer the field sobriety tests as required may end up with an innocent person being wrongly arrested. A highly trained DWI attorney knows what to look for in evaluating a DWI case and will be more than ready to combat the prosecutors. Make sure you contact an experienced DWI attorney who will be by your side every step of the way.
