Do Not Let Your DWI Charge Slow You Down
Driving under the influence (DUI/DWI) of alcohol or drugs is the most common criminal offense committed in the U.S. Arrests are at an all-time high because legislators keep increasing the penalties against offenders across the country.
A DWI or DUI can be a drawn-out and expensive legal process, so it is vital that you bring in an excellent criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. To get the best possible outcome, your charges must be taken seriously and handled carefully from the start of your case. These cases often boil down to small details, such as if the police observed proper procedures when they pulled you over and issued you a DUI.
One Of The Most Experienced DWI Attorneys In The Dallas Area
As a criminal law specialist, for more than 30 years, I have been aggressively defending people charged with DWI and related driving offenses throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. I have built a reputation for using skill, knowledge and legal creativity to successfully defend individuals who were charged with a DWI or DUI, as well as those who refused to take breath and blood tests.
What Is The Difference Between DWI And DUI?
DUI and DWI stand for driving under the influence and driving while intoxicated. The terms are often used interchangeably, but the actual charges can result in different outcomes. For example, did you know that your age might affect your charge? Texas has a zero tolerance policy for minors driving with any level of alcohol in their system, so even if you are under the legal limit, you may still be charged with a DUI. DWIs are typically reserved for cases where the defendant is over 21 years old and had results over the legal limit on their breath or blood test.
