Driving While Intoxicated

If the State of Texas charges you with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) it is extremely important that you get in touch with an experienced Dallas DWI lawyer as soon as possible. The unique nature of these allegations requires that you be represented by someone with significant experience and expertise in the field of Criminal law.

There are several important things that must be taken care of in an expedited fashion to preserve your rights. First, in the State of Texas you should always request within 15 days a hearing from the Texas Department of Public Safety to challenge the revocation of your Drivers License. If you refused an Officer’s request for a sample of Breath or Blood after being arrested, your license will be suspended for 6 months starting 40 days from the date of arrest. If you voluntarily submitted to the Officer’s request and your Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) was over 0.08, your license will only be suspended for 90 days. To keep this from happening it is extremely important to challenge the State’s revocation of your license.

Whether this is your first, second or third DWI, the same rights apply to your case. The consequences of having a DWI conviction in the State of Texas have changed dramatically in recent years and it is important to hire an attorney to fight your case and be willing to take it to a Jury Trial.

Just because you refused to take or failed a breathalyzer test does not mean you are guilty. There are ways to challenge the validity of the initial traffic stop and the procedures used by the police officer during a field sobriety test that will diminish the legal effects of your refusal. Even more important to know is the fact that a breathalyzer test is not foolproof. Many things can go wrong that will affect a test’s accuracy. We understand what challenges to make against the state’s drunk driving case against you.

If you have been arrested and charged with a DWI, you need to act quickly to protect your freedom and your driver’s license. To speak to someone about your case, contact the law office of James Lee Bright for a free initial consultation.
