Criminal Defense Lawyer for Charges of Drunk or Intoxicated Driving in Marble Falls

Most drivers understand that drunk driving is very dangerous. Even small amounts of alcohol can affect a driver's ability to operate a motor vehicle safely. Because of this, police officers are constantly on the lookout for signs that a driver may be under the influence of alcohol or other substances. An officer may pull a driver over and ask them to submit to a breathalyzer or field sobriety tests, and based on the results of these tests, the officer may arrest the driver for driving while intoxicated (DWI). In many cases, drivers who have been arrested for drunk driving are unsure about how they should proceed, but by securing representation from an experienced attorney, they can make sure they are taking the right steps to protect their rights and minimize their consequences.

He can help you take the best steps to achieve a positive outcome to your case that will allow you to avoid penalties whenever possible or minimize the ways your life will be affected.

Legal Help in Multiple Types of DWI Cases

A DWI charge may be based on the claim that a person was in control of a motor vehicle while their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was above the legal limit. A driver may also face charges if they were allegedly intoxicated by marijuana or other controlled substances, including prescription drugs such as opioids.

We provide representation for those facing charges for drunk or intoxicated driving, including:

  • First-time DWI - If a person had not previously been convicted of DWI, they will usually be charged with a Class B misdemeanor. In these cases, a conviction will result in a minimum of three days in jail and a maximum sentence of 180 days. A person may also be required to pay a fine of up to $2,000, and they may be subject to a one-year driver's license suspension.
  • Multiple DWI - A second-time DWI will usually be charged as a Class A misdemeanor, and a conviction will result in a jail sentence between one month and one year, as well as up to $4,000 in fines and a license suspension of up to one year. A third-time DWI conviction is usually charged as a third-degree felony, which carries a jail sentence of between two and 10 years. Subsequent DWI convictions will result in more serious felony charges.
  • DWI with a child passenger - If a person is accused of intoxicated driving while carrying a passenger who was younger than 15 years old, this offense is charged as a state jail felony. If they are convicted, they will face a jail sentence between 180 days and two years.
  • DWI resulting in injury or death - A driver who was involved in a car accident while they were allegedly under the influence of alcohol or drugs may face felony charges if the accident resulted in someone's injury or death. Intoxication assault may be charged if a person suffered a serious bodily injury, and this offense is a third-degree felony. A driver may be charged with intoxication manslaughter, a second-degree felony, if a person was killed in an accident.
