Violation Of A Protective Order
Client was arrested for violation of a protective order after being arrested by officers for an unrelated driving offense. At the time of this arrest, he was borrowing a friend’s car to run a few errands. Approximately a year prior to this arrest, a default protective order had been granted against this client. A provision in that protective order made it a crime to possess a firearm. During an inventory search of the vehicle, a semi-automatic rifle was uncovered in the trunk of the vehicle. The client made
Second DWI – ALR Hearing
Client pulled over on a major highway for speeding and a missing tail light and was subsequently arrested for a second DWI after the officer saw two open containers of beer in the cup holders. At the administrative license revocation (ALR) hearing, we successfully argued that DPS could not establish my client’s alcohol concentration at the time he was operating his vehicle. The judge found our argument persuasive and denied the request by DPS to suspend our client’s driver’s license.
Possession Of Marijuana And A Controlled Substance
The client was driving home from a friend’s house and was stopped for failure to signal. At the motion to suppress hearing, the court heard testimony and granted the motion, which excluded all evidence acquired by the officer inadmissible at trial. Without any evidence, the state was forced to dismiss all charges, and the client is now eligible to have the arrest and charges expunged from his record.
Client was driving home from a birthday party when pulled over for failure to signal a lane change. After we pointed out some significant weaknesses in the case based on evidence in the video and the officer’s report, the prosecution agreed to offer a reduction to obstruction of a passageway and allowed our client the opportunity to have the case dismissed after successfully completing deferred adjudication probation.
DWI BAC > 0.15%
Client was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated after being pulled over by police for speed. A blood test taken after this stop alleged my client’s blood alcohol level (BAC) at the time of the test was .216, resulting in this case being charged as a Class A Misdemeanor. After extensive discovery review and persistent negotiations, the prosecutor agreed to lower the charges to a first DWI.

What Are the Drunk Driving Laws in Texas?
In Texas, laws for drunken driving are based upon your BAC (blood alcohol concentration), that is above the legal limit, while operating a vehicle. The enforced legal limits are below:
- Under the age of 21, a BAC of .02 or more
- Drivers of all ages, a BAC of .08 or more
- Any commercial vehicle drivers, a BAC of .04 or more
Anytime you exceed this limit, you run the risk of getting convicted for a DWI.
If This Is My First DWI, Will I Receive Jail Time?If this is your first alcohol related offense, then you will most likely avoid any jail time. However, this depends on the details of your case.
Will I Lose My License if I am Charged with a DWI?
A DWI offense in Texas can lead to a suspension of your license for a period of 90 days up to 2 years. The length of suspension is determined based on a few different factors.
- The driver’s age
- Blood alcohol level
- Circumstances of the offense
- Prior convictions.
What Are the Penalties for DWI in Texas?
In Texas, the state has a wide range of charges for a drunk driving charge.
- A fine of up to $10,000
- License suspension for 90 days to two years
- Installation of an interlock ignition device
- Mandatory drug and alcohol treatment
- Seventy-two hours to 10 years in jail
The severity of your charges can range based on if you have prior DWI convictions. If you do, that would likely lead to more serious charges.
Can My DWI Case Get Dismissed?In some cases, you can get a DWI dismissed or reduced charges. This depends heavily on the factors of the case. It is always in your best interest to hire a skilled attorney to assist you through your legal troubles.
