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.

Euless DWI Lawyer

If you’ve been pulled over and arrested for drunk driving, you need to know how to defend against the charges. Find out by working with a DWI attorney in Euless.

It doesn’t take much to get arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI)—just a couple of drinks can do it. In fact, in Texas, the police are allowed to charge you with DWI even if your blood alcohol content (BAC) doesn’t exceed the legal limit of .08 percent.

Although most of us are familiar with the concept of getting a DWI, not all of us actually know what legal troubles arise from drunk driving and yet fewer know how to get out of such a sticky situation.

To find out how to beat your drinking and driving charge, contact a Euless DWI lawyer at the Law Offices of Jeff C. Kennedy today.

Texas Drunk Driving Penalties Are Harsh

DWI is no light matter, which is reflected in Texas’ penalties for drunk driving convictions. A DWI conviction can carry varying penalties, largely depending on whether you’ve previously been convicted of a similar offense.

First-time DWI offenders face fines of up to $2,000, up to 180 days in jail, loss of drivers license for up to one year, and a three-year annual fee to retain the drivers license after it’s been reinstated.

For those with prior convictions, the potential fines, jail time, and duration without a license increase—sometimes substantially. And all of this doesn’t even touch on how much your auto insurance rate is likely to increase after a DWI conviction.

Defenses for DWI Offenses

Although the prosecutor has the burden of proof in a DWI case, they often find that it’s relatively easy to convince the judge of your guilt.

That is, unless you and your Euless DWI lawyer mount a compelling defense in your favor.

Fortunately, there are numerous defenses that could be employed to win an acquittal or see your charge dismissed:

  • Lack of Probable Cause – If a cop pulled you over without good reasonor for a reason unrelated to your sobrietyyou may be able to have any evidence obtained during that process dismissed.
  • Not Being Told Your Miranda Rights – If you were not properly informed of your right to remain silent, you may be able to use this omission to your advantage.
  • Opposing Witness Recollections – Although a friendly witness’ recollection may not absolve you of all your charges, it can be helpful for the judge to hear first-hand accounts as to why your behavior may have seemed reckless (e.g., you were swerving because you were avoiding something in the road).
  • Inaccurate Measures of Sobriety – It’s not uncommon for sobriety tests to be administered in a sloppy manner, which can skew their results. If you can prove that the test was not conducted using regular protocol and procedure, the prosecution’s case may be on shaky ground.
