Driving While Intoxicated – Driving Under The Influence
If your blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08 or higher, you can be charged with a DWI.
If you refuse a blood or breath test, you can also be charged, even if your BAC is lower than .08. In some instances, the state may attempt to prove that you had consumed enough alcohol to impair you, or that you lost your ability to drive due to a combination of drugs and alcohol.
Moreover, you could face a DWI charge due to the impact mixing alcohol and prescription drugs had on you.
If you are charged with a DWI, you could be facing a suspended license, even if there is no conviction.
To reinstate your license, or to receive an occupational license or temporary license, you have fifteen days to request an ALR hearing. Our DUI lawyers will work aggressively on your behalf, representing you on your license suspension hearing.
If you are pulled over for drinking and driving and are under 21, you could be facing a DUI charge if the arresting officer detects or smells any alcohol on you, even if you don’t appear to be impaired.
A DWI or DUI conviction often results in a suspended license, which is why it’s so important to hire an attorney that offers you the legal counsel to guide you on your rights and fight any charges against you.

Each case is approached on an individual basis, focusing on the personal concerns of our clients, which we know are extremely important. We are well-versed in all DWI cases, and handle defenses involving:
- First-time DWI charges: A DWI offense even if it is your first one is a lot more complicated than a simple traffic ticket, as the impact of this charge can affect almost all aspects of your life. It’s vital that you are guided by a lawyer who can explain the weaknesses and strengths of the prosecution’s case, and advises you on all your available options.
- Repeat DWI offenders: A second DWI offense brings with it more stringent conditions and enhanced penalties. You could be facing up to a year in prison, and the state can also require you to install a device in your car called an ignition overlock to be allowed to drive, undergo substance abuse evaluation, and attend alcohol abuse courses.
- Felony DWI charge: Being charged with a third DWI related offense is a felony-level charge in the state of Texas. There are also other circumstances which can turn your charge into a felony charge, including driving while under the influence with a minor under the age of 15 in your vehicle.
- DWI and your driving license: Your ability to challenge the suspension of your license can be significantly impacted when you delay obtaining representation from an experienced DWI defense attorney. To contest your DWI license suspension, you only have 15 days after you’ve been arrested.
