Hiring Jeff Kennedy turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Mr. Kennedy was able to have my case dismissed. Yes, outright dismissal of the charge!

A.C.

We did exactly as Jeff instructed and the case was dismissed. There are no words to explain how happy we are with his performance.

Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

Colleyville DWI Lawyer

Charged with drinking and driving and unsure of what to do next? A Colleyville DWI attorney can help you build the defense that clears your name.

Drunk driving carries severe penalties in Texas, and anyone who’s consumed a single alcoholic beverage could potentially be arrested for it. Your blood alcohol content (BAC) doesn’t even need to exceed the legal limit to be arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI).

If you’re unlucky enough to have been charged with DWI, you should contest the charges.

If convicted, you’ll face thousands of dollars in costs, the suspension of your drivers license, and even loss of personal and professional reputation. To protect yourself, you should speak with a Colleyville DWI lawyer from the Law Offices of Jeff C. Kennedy.

Legal Punishments for Driving Intoxicated

There are different tiers of DWI charges, and which set of penalties you’ll face will depend on whether you have any prior DWI convictions on record. No matter which you fall under, you’ll face at least three days in jail and you’ll lose your driving privileges until you pay for and pass a drunk driving class.

First Offense Class B Misdemeanor

  • Fine up to $2,000
  • One-year license suspension
  • Annual license retention fee of up to $2,000
  • Up to 180 days in jail

Second Offense Class A Misdemeanor

  • Fine up to $4,000
  • Two-year license suspension
  • Annual license retention fee of up to $2,000
  • Up to one year in jail

Third or Higher Offense Third-Degree Felony

  • Fine up to $10,000
  • Two-year license suspension
  • Annual license retention fee of up to $2,000
  • Two to ten years in prison

Additional Repercussions of a Conviction

Non-legal problems that stem from a DWI conviction include increases in your insurance rates and possibly the loss of your auto insurance policy all together. You might have to settle for high-risk insurers that make driving nearly unaffordable.

Additionally, you’ll now have a criminal record with either a misdemeanor or a felony on it, both of which will affect how others perceive you. This can cost you your job and make it much harder to apply for just about everything.

Drunk Driving Defenses

Your Colleyville DWI attorney will investigate the reasons the officer had for pulling you over in the first place, as well as the training the officer has gone through. If the officer is behind or if the equipment hasn’t been calibrated regularly, then it might be possible to get those thrown out as evidence.

We’ll also inspect the traffic stop itself to ensure that you were not treated unfairly. An attorney from our office will know how to find and utilize every weak point in the DWI case against you.
