40 Years Of Experience Defending DWI Charges
The state of Texas takes driving while intoxicated (DWI) very seriously. If convicted, even for a first offense, you could face penalties, including a suspended license, fines of up to $2,000, probation and even a jail sentence of up to six months. If certain aggravating circumstances are present, a first-offense DWI may result in a fine of up to $4,000 and a jail sentence of up to a year. A conviction after two or more previous DWI convictions is a felony that may result in a fine of up to $10,000 and a prison sentence of up to 10 years. It is therefore crucial to work with an attorney who takes your defense as seriously as the state takes your prosecution.
