A Drunk Driving Charge Can Have A Life-Altering Impact

Operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol is never a wise idea. Even consuming just a couple of drinks may push your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over the Texas legal limit. Still, mistakes happen, and you may find yourself facing a driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving under the influence (DUI) charge.

Navigating Traffic-Related Homicide Charges

I have helped numerous service members and Texans fight drunk driving charges. These charges should never be taken lightly, as they can result in severe penalties, including:

  • Heavy fines: A first offense alone can command a fine of up to $2,000.
  • License suspension or revocation: You could lose your license for up to one year after a DWI conviction. Refusing to submit to a field sobriety test can also lead to a 180-day suspension.
  • Loss of vehicle: The state of Texas may confiscate your vehicle.
  • An ignition interlock device: You may be tasked with paying for the installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle.
  • Prison time: If you are a repeat offender, you may be faced with a lengthy prison sentence.

Fortunately, there are several defenses for DUI/DWI charges. In certain cases, the legitimacy of the traffic stop itself can even be called into question. I am an aggressive trial lawyer, and I explore every possible defense on behalf of my clients, because I understand what is at stake.

Intoxicated manslaughter is a second-degree felony in the state of Texas. As a serious crime, this charge can come with serious consequences, including significant fines and jail time. I often take on these tough cases, and I fight them with a fierceness as though they were my own.
