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.

Should I Get a Lawyer for My First DWI? 

If you’ve been charged with a DWI in Texas for the first time, you may be asking yourself this question: Should I get a lawyer for my first DWI? This is probably the question that every first-time DWI arrestee asks themself. You will need to weigh the pros and cons, but it’s definitely a good idea to get a lawyer’s help.

Most people would get a lawyer if they could afford to do so. It usually comes down to money. You should prioritize your future over the cost of a lawyer because your future is worth the temporary expense of hiring a DWI lawyer.

What Your DWI Lawyer Can Do for You

Some people make the mistake of thinking a first-time DWI isn’t serious and so they don’t need to get a lawyer’s help with their case. They will simply plead guilty to the offense and deal with the legal consequences. What these people likely don’t know is that a DWI can negatively affect their lives far beyond the legal ramifications.

If they knew that, they probably wouldn’t be so quick to plead guilty. A lawyer can help you with your case in a number of ways. 

For starters, they can immediately begin giving you legal advice, which can keep you from inadvertently making your situation worse. They can look into your case to see which defense options are available. In many cases, your lawyer can find a good defense and get your case dismissed, or they could go to court and get you acquitted.

If your lawyer doesn’t think your case can be dismissed, they can likely get your charge reduced or get your penalties reduced.
