A DWI Reduction Lawyer in Allen Will Fight for You
The penalties you face for a drunk driving conviction include fines as high as $10,000 and up to two years’ suspension of your driver’s license. You also face jail or prison time, probation, community service, and court-mandated alcohol treatment.
You will also have a permanent criminal record which, in most cases, cannot be sealed or expunged in the future. Having a DWI on your record can interfere with your ability to:
- Get a job
- Rent a house or apartment
- Hold a professional license

Potential Allen DWI Reduction Options
Our options for DWI reduction depend on the charges pending against you. The prosecutor determines how to charge you based on the several factors that include:
- Any prior DWIs on your record
- Your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) upon arrest
- Aggravating circumstances
Potential factors that can increase the severity of the charges you face include:
- Minor passenger (age 14 or below)
- Open container
- DWI accident or wreck
- DWI accident or wreck with injuries
- DWI accident or wreck with fatality
- First responder injury or fatality victim
The legal team at the Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg will identify weaknesses in your case and develop legal strategies to achieve our objectives. Some potential options for DWI reduction are as follows:
Successfully reducing DWI charges to passageway obstruction could drop a felony DWI or Class A misdemeanor charge to a Class B misdemeanor. This is one of the most common compromises that prosecutors will consider.
Convincing the prosecutor to reduce DWI charges to reckless driving could drop a felony DWI charge to a misdemeanor.
Convincing the prosecutor to drop felony DWI charges to a misdemeanor can significantly reduce the penalties you face.
If you face aggravated felony DWI charges, we may successfully have the aggravating circumstances disregarded, substantially reducing the potential penalties you face.
We may have other options to help you with a DWI reduction. Our legal team will identify any diversion programs that you may qualify for. We can also explore the possibility of negotiating a community supervision agreement or, if necessary, we can prepare your case and defend you in court.
Legal Strategies for DWI Reduction
At the Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg, we have many options for challenging Allen drunk driving charges. The prosecutor must meet a high burden of proof to get a conviction. Our legal team will identify weaknesses in your case that we can use to establish reasonable doubt.
Some of the DWI legal defense strategies we have used in the past include:
Before making a DWI traffic stop, the police must have reasonable suspicion that you committed a crime. We may successfully challenge the legality of your stop and attempt to suppress any evidence the police subsequently obtained.
Before placing you under arrest, the police must establish probable cause of your intoxication. Depending on whether the arresting officer used field sobriety testing or a portable breathalyzer, we have many opportunities to challenge the legal establishment of probable cause.
Failure to Advise Legal Rights
Upon arrest, the police must advise you of your legal rights both verbally and in writing. If the arresting officer did not follow the law in this regard, it could potentially make your arrest illegal.
Breath or Blood Testing Errors
When conducting chemical BAC testing, the lab or testing technician may potentially commit errors that could affect the validity of the results. Likewise, testing equipment may fail or prove unreliable. We may demonstrate a failure to maintain or calibrate breathalyzer equipment, lack of technician certification, or a number of other potential problems.
Inaccurate Breath or Blood Test Results
A variety of circumstances can lead to inaccurate chemical BAC test results. Many foods, beverages, medications, and oral care products can cause false positive breath test results. The lab may contaminate blood evidence or fail to maintain the evidence in accordance with the law.
