Houston DWI Arrest

What Can Houston DWI Attorneys Do?

While hiring a DWI attorney may seem like a costly proposition, this investment now may save you money in the long run. Texas DWI laws call for up to several thousands dollars in fees, even if this is your first conviction. In addition, you may face additional fees for several years to keep your driver's license.

On top of this, there is the lost time from work that could be caused by the state's mandatory jail sentences. And then, once you're out, you may find that with a DWI on your record you have trouble finding or keeping a job, particularly if you drive or operate machinery on your job.

But these penalties only apply to convictions, not charges. Since you're allowed to fight your drunk driving charges, many people turn to a DWI attorney for help in understanding and applying the drunk driving laws.

A DWI attorney may look at the details of your case in an effort to create a defense. If evidence wasn't collected properly there's a chance it may not be allowed at your trial. Similarly, the police must follow certain procedures when making a traffic stop. Did they do so during your arrest?

Many people turn to DWI lawyers for advice and information so that when the time comes you can make the best decision for you and your future.
