The Consequences of a DWI
If you are convicted of driving while under the influence in the state of Texas, you can be assured that the consequences will be extremely harsh, with extensive repercussions. In many cases, law enforcement and governing officials seek to make an example to other drivers, so they impose even more rigid standards with stringent punishments. It is critical to have dedicated legal support to lessen these consequences, or even eliminate them altogether.
Each legal situation is unique, but there are a number of penalties that can be imposed. These typically include:
- Loss or suspension of your driver’s license, from 90 days up to two years
- Substantial fines, ranging up to $4000, if this is your second offense
- Possible jail time up to a year for 1st and 2nd offenses, or up to 10 years for 3rd offenses
- Lengthy probation times
- Requirement for an ignition interlock device to be installed on your car
- Astronomical increases on insurance premiums
How Aggressive Representation Can Help
Our experience in the courtroom and extensive legal knowledge in this area can be effective in challenging all charges. We examine your case to ascertain if there are important details that will work in your favor to reduce or dismiss charges.
To examine these elements, we will ask detailed questions such as:
- Did the law enforcement officer actually have probable cause for pulling you over?
- Each field sobriety test has its protocols. Was your test properly administered?
- Was the Breathalyzer properly maintained and operated?
