Save Your Driving Privileges by Acting Fast

Upon any DWI-related arrest in Texas, your license will be automatically suspended. To save your driving privileges, you will only have 15 days to request an administrative license hearing with the Texas Department of Public Safety. Our firm can assist you in every aspect of your DWI case, including representation through your ALR hearing and your criminal trial.

Defense Strategies That Never Relent

Even if you failed a breath test, refused a chemical test, or have any other evidence against you, you still may have defenses available to you. Do not assume that your arrest will automatically lead to a guilty conviction. We know how to protect your freedoms and your driving privileges in the state of Texas.

Defenses against a DWI charge may include:

  • Improper administration of a chemical test
  • Improper administration of a standardized field sobriety test
  • Preexisting health conditions that influenced the result of the breath, blood, or chemical test
  • Human error while reading a chemical or breath test
  • Failure to calibrate or maintain a Breathalyzer test
  • Violation in search and seizure laws
  • Unlawful police stop at a sobriety checkpoint
  • Unlawful arrest

We know how to challenge the prosecution or collect any sort of evidence that can be used to discredit police reports. Oftentimes, we are even able to determine if a police officer violated a search and seizure law while placing you under arrest. Because we pay meticulous attention to detail, we are able to file a motion to suppress evidence against you, which may lead to a complete dismissal of your case!
