Being arrested for or accused of drunk driving in Texas is a serious matter. A person charged with DWI is in danger of damage to his or her reputation as well as facing possible jail time, if convicted. It is typically beneficial to contact an experienced trial lawyer as soon as possible after one has been arrested and charged with this offense.
In the United States, anyone accused of a crime is presumed innocent unless and until proved otherwise in court. Therefore, it is advisable to act under the guidance of an experienced criminal attorney in order to determine all options available toward achieving as positive an outcome as possible in a case. A legal advocate is able to launch a thorough investigation into the details of your case, ensuring that none of your rights have been violated, either during or in the time following your arrest.
