Experienced in Handling Various DWI Cases
Driving is a necessary part of life. Driving to and from work or school, running errands, and picking up family members is a central part of many people’s day. If you are arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI), then your license is at stake. Many people believe that if you are stopped for a DWI then you will be automatically convicted – but that is not necessarily true. There are many DWI defenses, and depending on the details of your situation, you may be able to avoid the fines, jail time, and license suspension that comes along with a conviction.
You are agreeing to comply with certain laws when you accept your license from the Texas DMV. One of those laws is that any adult driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC) must be under .08%. Another stipulation you make is that you will comply with a chemical test if you are stopped on suspicion of a DWI. If you do not obey both of these laws then your license will be suspended for a period of time and you will be subject to jail time and substantial fines. However, there are a number of defenses that a qualified criminal defense attorney may be able to use to fight the charges. Morales & Associates handles all matters related to alcohol and drug-related driving charges including:
Open container, DWI of a person under the age of 21, DWI of a CDL holder, first time DWI offenders, multiple DWI offenders, and intoxication assault.
Charges can range from a misdemeanor DWI to a felony DWI. The level of the charge will depend on if this was your first offense and if anyone was injured while you were behind the wheel. DWI convictions lead to jail time, high fines, community service, alcohol awareness courses, a suspended license, and higher insurance rates.
