Reduced Charges Oure Team Obtained for Previous Clients
One client we represented in the past said, “It didn’t take me long to discover how hard the attorneys at his law offices were working. No doubt that I’m free today because of them.”
Others have said, “The Isenberg law offices are filled with professionals who take every case and client seriously, as if they’re going up to bat for their own family members.” Results we’ve obtained for these and other previous clients include the following:

We have also successfully fought for the dismissal of charges against previous clients, including one with a BAC of .15 and another who had a child passenger. We will fight as hard for you as we have fought for all our clients in the past.
How the State of Texas Penalizes Drivers for DWI
According to Texas Penal Code § 49.01, you are considered intoxicated if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level was tested and found to be .08 or higher. If a DWI arrest leads to conviction, the penalties and penalty enhancements can include the following:
- A first DWI offense is punishable with between 3 days and 6 months of incarceration.
- A second DWI offense is punishable with between 1 month and 1 year of incarceration.
- A Class B misdemeanor can be elevated to Class A if your BAC level is .15 or higher.
- A Class B misdemeanor can be elevated to Class A with jail time if you are found to have an open container of alcohol in your car at the time of your arrest.
- If you were involved in a DWI-related accident that resulted in others’ injuries, your charges could increase from a misdemeanor to a felony.

We can also help you limit the potential effect on your community, family, friends, and career. Our team is committed to your case and to helping you have an opportunity for a brighter future.
The Personal and Professional Impact of DWI Conviction
A DWI conviction can cause short-term and long-term damage to your life. Your family will also have to deal with the aftermath of your DWI if it leads to conviction.
Along with your freedom, you may lose your personal or commercial driver’s license. This can make it difficult to transport yourself and your family members to school or work and run important errands. If you lose your driver’s license, you may only have costly solutions to your transportation needs. Additional negative consequences include:
- Loss of personal and professional reputation
- Potential loss of driving-related employment
- Limitations to housing, voting, and education
When we work with you after a DWI arrest, we will fight hard to help you avoid these daily and far-reaching consequences.
Can Drivers Under 21 Be Charged with a DWI?
