Aggressive And Effective DWI Defense
The laws for drunk driving in Texas are much stricter these days than they once were. However, drivers still have legal options if they are pulled over and charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI). It is important for all drivers to remember that they are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Even if you tested above the legal blood alcohol level, it is still wise to reach out to a criminal defense lawyer with extensive experience in DWI defense.
Barbara Young and Lynn Libersky have more than 35 years combined experience in defending DWI and other criminal law charges here in Killeen and Temple. We know the impact that a guilty verdict can have on a driver’s life is substantial, and believe it is best to always aggressively challenge the charges.
The Consequences Of A DWI
Each legal situation is unique, but there are a number of penalties that can be imposed. These typically include:
- Loss of driver’s license
- Substantial fines
- Possible jail time and probation
- Requirement for an ignition interlock device to be installed on your car
- Insurance premiums will go up
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. These include:
- 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?
It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after being pulled over. Whether it is your first drunk driving arrest or your third, an attorney’s guidance early in the case can be the difference between managing a difficult legal situation and moving on, or having your life adversely affected for years to come.
