DWI Defense Attorney

DWI Defense Attorney San Antonio Texas

Have you been arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) in San Antonio and surrounding counties, in Texas? If so it is crucial to get legal representation immediately. Most people don’t know the law and can easily be intimidated by a DWI arrest.

Most people immediately assume that driving under the influence (DWI) means drunk driving, but actually driving under the influence means operating a motor vehicle without the normal use of mental or physical faculties due to impairment from alcohol or other drugs.

Potential DWI penalties for a first offense:

-Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) Less Than 0.15

  • Up to $2,000 in fines
  • Between 3 and 180 days in jail
  • A one-year suspension of your license
  • Substance abuse treatment program
  • Community Service

-Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) Greater Than 0.15

  • Up to $4,000 in fines
  • Up to one year in jail
  • A one-year suspension of your license

Potential DWI penalties for a second offense:

  • Up to $4,000 in fines
  • Between 3o days to 1 year in jail
  • A two-year suspension of your license
  • Substance abuse treatment program
  • Community Service

Driving under the influence is more than just alcohol and illegal drugs it also includes prescription drugs and over the counter medicine as well.

Building a solid defense against DWI charges can be difficult and having the skill to identify pieces of evidence to support that defense are not always obvious to inexperienced attorneys.
