DWI Punishment: How a Lawyer in Texas Can Help First-Time Offenders (Part B)

Considering that a DWI conviction has an extensive punishment behind it, it is important you seek a lawyer for support in your case, especially if you believe you were wrongfully charged. The attorney team at the Kahn Law Firm has clear knowledge of what to expect in these types of cases and understand the faulty accusations that may have been made.

How a DWI Lawyer in Texas Can Help 

Even a first-time DWI offense carries the punishment of jail time and a conviction may have far-reaching consequences. A suspended driver license could impact your ability to commute to work, a criminal record could hinder job opportunities and the ability to travel, and your insurance premiums could increase significantly.
Do not assume that the facts surrounding your case are cut and dry. A good DWI attorney will challenge the prosecutor’s evidence by bringing into question whether the officer who pulled you over had probable cause to do so, as well as cast doubt on the accuracy of field sobriety tests, as well as Breathalyzer or blood tests, which sometimes have been known to falsely accuse someone of DWI.

Minors charged with DWI should consider seeking out a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible, considering that an officer can may arrest a minor for having trace amounts of alcohol detected.

Also understand that offenders have only 15 days to request an Administrative License Revocation Hearing (ALR Hearing). The ALR Hearing is a civil proceeding that will determine the length of your driver license suspension.
