Arrested For Drunk Driving? Put Us On Your Side Today.
Been charged with DWI or DUI? People make mistakes. The mistake of getting behind the wheel of a car, or taking your boat out on the lake when you’ve taken drugs or had too much to drink, can be a disaster in more ways than one. In Texas, the legal penalties of a conviction for DWI, DUI or BWI are stiff even if you’ve never been arrested before. If the proper steps are not taken shortly after arrest, you can end up with more than just a suspended driver’s license.

A DWI conviction can lead to costly fines and classes, at best. At worst, you could have your driver’s license suspended for a year and even serve jail time. The court system takes this behavior very seriously, and without the skill of a DWI lawyer, you risk feeling the full brunt of the punishments.
We will review your case and find any instances of inconsistencies, including investigating whether the arresting officer had probable cause for pulling you over. As in every case we try, we will put forth the diligent effort to assemble all the pieces for a solid case. We will review the evidence and find the inaccuracies, attacking the tests with the help of toxicologists and breath-test experts.
