A DWI Lawyer in Lewisville Will Fight for Your Rights
If you are arrested and detained for suspected drunk driving, you can lose your driving privileges and can face criminal and financial penalties. Facing the aftermath of a DWI arrest on your own can be frightening and challenging. When our DWI team is on your side, we can make sure:
- You were read your rights in full and in a language that you understood
- You were not questioned without your lawyer in the room with you
- The machine used to test your BAC was not corrupted or malfunctioning
Our legal team can also make sure the reason you were pulled over in the first place was valid. If you lose your driving privileges, you could be faced with a plethora of unfortunate consequences. Among other things, you could face social and professional stigma and can be banned from certain types of employment. Our team can help minimize this damage and might be able to help you keep your driver’s license.
How a DWI Affects Your Driving Privileges
Driving is a privilege, not a right, and one that comes with many responsibilities. It also comes with penalties such as the ones you might face if you are convicted of driving while intoxicated, known in Texas as DWI. Texas Penal Code Section 49.01 maintains that you are intoxicated if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.08 or higher.
The Texas Department of Transportation states the following regarding penalties:
- First DWI: Up to 180 days in jail, fine up to $2,000, loss of your driver license up to a year
- Second DWI: Up to a year in jail, fine of up to $4,000, loss of your driver license of up to two years
- Third DWI: A fine of up to $10,000, up to ten years in prison, loss of your driver license for up to two years
In addition to these penalties, if you are convicted of DWI as the result of being involved in a car accident, you can never have your record sealed. Because this permanent blemish on your record will follow you personally and professionally, hiring a lawyer who can help you avoid conviction is important.
