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!

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.

Crowley DWI Lawyer

To beat your DWI charge, you need qualified and experienced legal help. Turn to a Crowley DWI attorney.

Texas police seem to be patrolling the streets and putting up more sobriety checkpoints than ever before. That means a lot of people are swept up in arrests for drunk driving.

You can’t afford to accept a conviction for driving while intoxicated (DWI). The financial, professional, and personal costs are far too high.

That’s why you may need to work with a Crowley DWI lawyer from the Law Offices of Jeff C. Kennedy. We’re more than prepared to help.

Penalties for Driving While Intoxicated

Your penalties may depend on individual judges and prosecuting attorneys, the number of past offenses you have, and which lawyer you hire. However, there are some defined categories of punishments for Crowley DWI convictions, which are detailed below:

  • Your first offense, a Class B misdemeanor, carries a maximum fine of $2,000, surcharges totaling $3,000, and up to 180 days’ jail time.
  • Your second offense, a Class A misdemeanor, carries a max fine of $4,000, surcharges totaling $4,500, and up to one year of jail time.
  • If your blood alcohol content was above 0.15, you face a Class A misdemeanor carrying a max fine of $4,000, surcharges totaling $6,000, and up to one year in jail.
  • If you had a child passenger when you were arrested for DWI in Crowley, it’s a state jail felony carrying a max fine of $10,000, surcharges totaling $3,000, and 180 days to two years’ jail time.
  • Your third or greater offense is a third-degree felony carrying a max fine of $10,000, surcharges totaling $4,500, and two to ten years’ prison time.

Insurance Rate Hikes and Other Ramifications

A felony will prevent you from voting, but even if your DWI conviction is only a misdemeanor, it can still wreak havoc on your life in other ways. You’ll face losing promotions or your position with your company. When looking for a new job, you’ll have to mark “Yes” next to the question about past criminal history for the rest of your life.

Your friends and family may treat you like a criminal or avoid you altogether. Children’s services may even get involved in your household’s affairs if your DWI involved a child passenger.

Your insurance premiums will likely be raised, and the insurer could drop your coverage as soon as legally allowable, leaving you with only high-risk providers to choose from. This might become so costly that you simply can’t afford to drive anymore.

Your DWI lawyer in Crowley will do everything possible to protect you from all these punishments.

DWI Defenses in Crowley

We’ll question the validity of the radar gun used to check your speed, the legality of the sobriety checkpoint, and the functionality of the breathalyzer. We’ll also fight any other sobriety tests performed. Issues could include maintenance, testing, training, and any technicalities we can exploit to protect you.

We will use our knowledge and experience to get your entire charge dismissed or at least reduced.

Contact a Crowley DWI Attorney

Few people can defend themselves against a DWI charge without legal help. When your future is on the line, you don’t want to take that risk.
