Aggressive And Experienced Trial Lawyer For DWI Charges

Under Texas law, a person is deemed to be intoxicated when operating a motor vehicle, water craft, etc. if either they have lost the use of their mental OR physical faculties or they have a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or greater AT THE TIME OF DRIVING OR OPERATING THE VEHICLE. The definition of intoxication is not at all limited to alcohol, and increasingly citizens are being accused of impaired driving under the influence of a number of potentially mind-altering drugs, both legal and illegal, including even those prescribed for them by a physician. Alone, or in combination with alcohol, a wide range of substances are capable of causing a driver to be intoxicated, and the State of Texas continues to aggressively crack down on this dangerous driving. Unfortunately, based on these well-meaning efforts to save lives, many drivers who aren't intoxicated can be wrongfully accused of such in the name of public safety.

Protecting Your Rights

It's been said by many a criminal defense lawyer that if you can try a DWI, then you can try any kind of criminal case. That's because DWI cases are increasingly complex, and handling a DWI case with competence requires a great deal of specialized knowledge of just how the State goes about enforcing our DWI laws. Not only does a lawyer need to be very familiar with the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests designed by NHTSA for use nationwide in DWI detection, but they also must be well-versed in the scientific principles of both breath and blood alcohol testing. Consequences for DWI for even first-time offenders can be severe, and can include:

  • Drivers license suspensions
  • Expensive surcharges assessed by DPS
  • Jail time

Because of the high potential for negative outcomes in these types of cases, it is important to hire a lawyer with experience and a track record of success in handling DWIs, especially in trials. As a member of both the National College for DUI Defense and the DUI Defense Lawyers Association, I can proudly say that I have both the specialized knowledge and experience to help successfully defend you against any type of charge related to impaired driving.
