Driving While Intoxicated

Driving While Intoxicated

DWI is a major focus of Texas law enforcement agencies.  Law enforcement dedicate whole units to DWI enforcement and they train all of their officers in ways to trap drivers into submitting to roadside examinations.  The enforcement of DWI laws in Texas is the offense that the state likely spends the most money attempting to enforce.

We have all seen the road side billboards “Drink, Drive, Go to jail” and various other ad campaigns targeted at the general public about DWI and DWI laws. It should be no surprise then that people charged with DWI face a hard uphill battle to win their cases and preserve their freedoms.

What may be more surprising is the fact that much of the “science” underlying the enforcement of these laws is questionable at best and difficult to execute even in the best of circumstances. In order to beat this kind of evidence you need an attorney who knows how it works. 

Mr. Nelson is a National Highway Traffic Safety Agency certified standardized field sobriety test practitioner.  He has also handled hundreds of DWI charges with all different kinds of evidence and errors by the state.

Remember, when we say that Texas takes DWI seriously, we mean it—our DWI penalties are among the strictest in the nation. Convictions for an DWI first offense can lead to:

  • Up to a one-year driver’s license suspension, limiting your mobility and freedom
  • Up to 180 days in jail
  • A hefty initial fine of up to $2,000
  • Up to one year of probation, which may include alcohol monitoring, community service, alcohol classes, and more
  • Future driver’s license restrictions, such as a $3,000 state traffic fine.

While these consequences are substantial and truthfully incredibly life-altering, they do not hold a candle to second or subsequent DWIs, which carry even stricter, harsher, and more serious penalties. In short, take the list above and compound it.
