You've seen the signs throughout Houston: Drink, drive, go to jail. They make it seem cut and dry. Well, it's not. Let me decide how well you performed on the field sobriety tests. Ask me to double-check your breathalyzer results. Knowledge is power, and in DWI cases, my knowledge is your power.
You've Been Charged with a DWI: Now What?
- Don't Panic...Prepare - Collect any paperwork the officer gave you, and put it in a file folder or envelope. You'll want to take this to your first meeting with a lawyer. Before meeting with your lawyer, take time to note all the details surrounding the day or night of your arrest. Every detail is significant and could provide the evidence needed to beat your DWI charges.
- Find a Lawyer Whose Specialty is DWI Defense - When it comes to handling DWIs, not all lawyers are created equal. DWI defense is a highly specialized, highly technical field. You need a lawyer who's demonstrated success at every level of the DWI process, from pre-trial motions all the way through trial. Your lawyer should be an expert in field sobriety testing administration and interpretation, and should know the tests better than the officer.
- Prepare for the Realistic Costs of Defending Your DWI Case - I know you weren't planning on this expense, but it does cost money to defend your case. The right lawyer can prevent you from going to jail, losing your job, paying higher insurance rates, and everything else that can go along with getting a DWI. I offer my services at a flat rate. That means you will know my total fee from the very beginning, so you can budget accordingly. For your convenience, I accept all major credit cards as payment.
It really isn't that hard to contest your DWI. But you do need to act now. In every DWI case that my law office handles, our first step is to request an Administrative License Revocation hearing to fight your potential driver's license suspension. Remember, you have just 15 days after your arrest to request a hearing to save your driver's license.
Call me today at (713) 236-8744, and we'll set up your initial consultation, where I'll walk you through your defense options for your specific case.
Note: If you have a copy of your DWI video, bring it with you and I'll analyze it as part of your initial evaluation . If you don't have a copy, call me and I'll tell you how you can obtain one.
Remember, all it takes is reasonable doubt to get your case dismissed. I can help raise that reasonable doubt.
