Austin, Texas DWI Defense Lawyers

Odessa TX DWI Defense Attorneys

Defense Attorneys in Travis County, Williamson County, and Hays County for Defendants Charged With Driving While Intoxicated

In an average year, thousands of Texans are stopped and arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated (DWI). Many individuals are ultimately convicted, leaving them to face a wide range of criminal penalties and other consequences. If you have been arrested and charged with DWI in Texas, your entire future could be in jeopardy.

Drunk Driving Defense in Midland County and Ector County

Some DWI cases involve relatively more serious charges than others do, but in the state of Texas, no DWI charge is considered minor. Any charge related to drunk driving is extremely serious and carries the potential for severe criminal penalties. If you are convicted of DWI, you could face time in jail, expensive fines, and the suspension or revocation of your driver's license, even if it is your first offense. A conviction will also result in a permanent entry on your criminal history that could cause difficulties for you down the road.

As with many criminal offenses in Texas, the level of a DWI charge and the associated penalties may vary based on a variety of factors. For example, a "standard" first DWI charge is usually a Class B misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail, fines of up to $2,000, and the suspension of your driving privileges for 90 days to one year. The court could also place you on probation (community supervision) for a period of up to two years as well. A second-offense DWI is a Class A misdemeanor. Penalties for a conviction may include fines not to exceed $4,000, up to one year in jail, a driver's license suspension of up to two years, and up to two years of community supervision.

If you are accused of DWI with a child passenger, however, the charge is likely to be a state jail felony, with potential penalties that include up to two years in state jail, fines of up to $10,000, and a license suspension of up to two years. Our attorneys will work with you to ensure that you fully understand the charges you are facing and the possible consequences of a conviction.
