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.

Haltom City DWI Lawyer

When you’ve been arrested for drunk driving, you need the best defense available to clear your name. Work with a Haltom City DWI attorney for the best results.

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a serious charge, carrying expensive and long-lasting penalties. If you’ve been arrested for drunk driving, you need to defend yourself to avoid these negative repercussions and protect your future. If you’re convicted, you’ll have a criminal record and lose your license among the many other penalties.

Your first action should be contacting a Haltom City DWI lawyer from the Law Offices of Jeff C. Kennedy so that we can quickly begin investigating what happened and building the defense that could see your DWI dismissed.

Legal Repercussions of Drunk Driving in Texas

Every DWI conviction carries a minimum of seventy-two hours in jail, a three-year annual surcharge, the temporary loss of your drivers license, and other punishments that are dependent on the circumstances.

  • Your first offense is a Class B misdemeanor with a fine up to $2,000, a one-year license suspension, and up to 180 days in jail.
  • Your second offense is a Class A misdemeanor with a fine up to $4,000, a two-year license suspension, and up to one year in jail.
  • Your third or subsequent offense is a third-degree felony with a fine up to $10,000, a two-year license suspension, and between two and ten years in prison.
  • If you had a child passenger at the time of your arrest, you face a state jail felony with a fine up to $10,000 and between 180 days and two years in jail.

The loss of your license will make it very difficult to maintain your day-to-day life. To regain your privilege to drive, you’ll have to take an expensive class and pass it, and then pay a license reinstatement fee.

DWI Consequences Beyond the Law

Your insurance company will definitely raise your rates after a DWI conviction. It is also possible that they’ll decline to renew your coverage at the next opportunity. This means you’ll be stuck with high-risk providers that may costs thousands more.

You’ll have to deal with the stigma of being known as an irresponsible drunk driver. This can affect your relationships with coworkers, bosses, friends, and even your family.

If convicted, you’ll have a permanent criminal record that will diminish your ability to get approved for loans, apartments, hired for a new job, and might even impact your right to vote if your DWI offense was a felony.

You simply cannot afford to plead guilty or take on the legal system alone. A Haltom City DWI attorney from our firm will work with you to build the exact defense your case requires.

Defenses Against Drunk Driving Charges

Our legal team will investigate all the equipment used during your sobriety test and arrest, as well as the circumstances they were administered under. Anything unlawful or out of order could result in evidence being declared inadmissible.

Rights violations are often employed to beat DWI charges. If the officers didn’t have probable cause to pull you over and the dashcam footage shows someone cooperating, odds are good that there’s a way to challenge your drunk driving charge.
