If you have been charged with drunk driving, then you are right to think that you should talk to a lawyer. DWIs are not just another traffic ticket. They are treated very seriously under Texas law, and the consequences of a conviction can affect your life for many years to come.
For example, you could lose your driver's license, your insurance rates could skyrocket and you could even be sentenced to jail.

Your case might not be as straightforward as you think
DWI cases are more complicated than most people realize, which means there is a greater likelihood of beating the charges than you might think. There are numerous factors about the traffic stop and DWI arrest that may be able to be challenged such as:
- Was the traffic stop lawful? In other words, did the officer have the right to pull you over in the first place?
- Were you read your rights and given the opportunity to call a lawyer?
- Was the equipment used to test your breath or blood reliable and used properly by a qualified person?
As you can see, DWI cases involve a lot more than just the simple question of whether or not you were over the legal limit to drive. Your lawyer must be able to identify every issue.
