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.
