Brownwood DWI Attorney Giving You the Legal Support You Need to Win Your Case
Alcohol consumption is incredibly popular across the United States. Because drinking is one of the most popular ways to socialize and wind down from the stresses of life, it can often lead to criminal offenses if people aren’t careful. One of the most prevalent alcohol-related offenses across the country is driving under the influence. What separates DWIs from other criminal offenses is that anyone, at any time, can commit a DWI if they have a lapse in judgment. A DWI may very well be your first criminal offense. I have a long history of representing clients charged with a variety of DWI offenses including:
- Intoxication Assault
- Intoxication Manslaughter
Regardless if it is your first offense or not, it still has the chance to put your future in jeopardy. DWI convictions can carry significant penalties and can end up being a blemish on your record. My law office understands that mistakes happen. I can help you minimize the damage of your charges or even have your charges dropped entirely. Make sure you reach out to my law office as soon as possible to get started on your criminal defense.
Was I Lawfully Stopped While Driving?
Many DWI charges stem from being stopped on suspicion of a DWI. This aspect of DWI cases can be troubling due to the subjective nature of a DWI suspicion on the part of law enforcement. It is possible that you were driving, and you committed a sudden and irregular driving maneuver and a police officer saw you do it. In their mind, that could be enough to warrant stopping you for suspicion of a DWI. Perhaps you were swerving too much while driving, or you were driving slower than most cars typically do on a certain road. These are all reasons a law enforcement official may have stopped you for a DWI. However, a DWI attorney can contend that a stop based on such factors may have been unlawful and improper. Consult with my law office to understand why you were stopped and why you were charged with a DWI so I can develop a strong defense for you.
What Penalties Will I Face for a DWI Conviction?
The legal penalties for a DWI can be troublesome for anyone but can be even worse if this isn’t the first DWI you have committed. For first-time offenders, punishments for a DWI conviction can result in fines and even some jail time, depending on the severity of your offense. For repeat offenders, you may be sentenced to significant jail time and hit with massive fines in order to deter you from committing the same offense again. My law office can help minimize the potential punishment you may face or have your case dismissed altogether. Contact me today for your best chance at a successful defense.
What Can Be Used as a DWI Defense?
If you have been charged with a DWI, it’s important to know that you are not guaranteed to be convicted. Dealing with a DWI charge can alter your perception of guilt and innocence, but it’s critical to remember that there are plenty of defenses that can be used to absolve you from your charge. Some defenses that can be used in a DWI case include an improper stop made by law enforcement, inaccuracies to sobriety tests, and other errors or mistakes made by the police in relation to your case. I can sift through any evidence presented against you to see which defensive approach is the most suitable for your case.
