If you or someone you love was arrested for DWI in Glenn Heights, you do not have to submit to a police interview, tell your side of the story, or face the impact of arrest and conviction without a DWI lawyer by your side. Our team can help you navigate the road ahead of you from the day of your arrest until your case is resolved.
When you are ready to fight for your future, our team can help ensure your arrest was valid, any tests of your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level were accurate, and your case receives the individualized time and attention it deserves. We can help you negotiate a plea bargain or fight to have the charges dropped entirely.
A DWI Conviction Can Impair Your Present and Future
Driving while intoxicated (DWI) can lead to more than criminal punishments and fines. It can also have a negative effect on your personal and professional life. If you have aspirations for higher or continuing education, a DWI conviction can impact those areas of your life. It can leave you with fewer available options for:
- Residential housing
- Financial aid
- Driving-related employment
You do not have to accept the loss of these options without fighting back, and you do not have to fight for your future without help. Our team will conduct a thorough investigation into the allegations against you and fight hard to minimize the potential damage with plea bargains and outright dismissals, when possible.
You Have Rights Before and After a DWI Arrest
When our team represents you, we start by ensuring the police officer who arrested you had a valid reason for doing so. Texas Code of Criminal Procedure §14.03 requires any police officer who stops you on suspicion of drinking and driving to have what the law calls “probable cause” to do so.
If we can prove there was no probable cause for your arrest, we will use this as leverage in your defense. In addition, our team will ensure:
- You were read your rights in full and in a language that you clearly understood.
- You were not questioned by law enforcement without your lawyer present.
- All interviews or interrogations stopped immediately after you requested a lawyer.
Our team carefully examines the facts of your case before and after your arrest took place. We will also challenge the validity, effectiveness, and calibration of any BAC testing equipment and subsequent results.
We Will Negotiate with the Prosecution on Your Behalf
After a thorough and comprehensive investigation, we use every tool at our disposal to help minimize the damage of a DWI conviction. We will negotiate with the prosecution for:
- Lower charges and reduced sentences
- Retained or restored driver’s license
- Speedier resolution of your case
- Minimal damage to your record
A DWI lawyer from our team can help you avoid a permanent stain on your record that might appear on future background checks. DWI-related marks on your record could negatively impact your career and your reputation in the Glenn Heights community.
DWI Convictions Can Carry Harsh Penalties
Per the Texas Politics Project guidelines, potential DWI penalties can include long periods of incarceration, ranging from:
- 180 days to 1 year for misdemeanor convictions
- 180 days to 99 years for felony convictions
You might also face criminal fines upon conviction that range from $500 to $10,000. To help you avoid harsher sentences and higher fines, we work hard to negotiate plea bargains and reduced charges on your behalf.
