Arrested For DWI in Texas?

Recognize first that there are significant deadlines after your arrest. Failure to request an administrative hearing to contest your license suspension within 15 days of your arrest will result in the automatic suspension of your driver’s license 40 days after your arrest.  The good news is I request this in every case so I have the opportunity to question your arresting officer under oath to try to establish facts that either show no legal justification for pulling you over, or facts that might be the key to an acquittal if your case had to go to trial.

Penalties For First Time DWI Offenders in Texas

First offender penalties, depending on alcohol concentration, can be up to 1 year in jail, significant fines, and court costs.

Your Best Defense

Decades of experience in thousands of cases allow me to probe for weaknesses in the prosecutions case. Examples include:

  • Was there reasonable suspicion or probable cause to pull you over?
  • Were the roadside sobriety tests conducted properly?
  • Is there a medical history that could explain less than perfect performance on your roadside test?
  • Are there problems with the breath testing equipment?
  • Are there problems with the blood draw, the preservation of the sample, or analysis of the sample?
