It’s a scary thing being charged with a DWI. Right away you will likely wonder about how the charge will affect your present and your future. If convicted, you will undoubtedly face some negative consequences. You could be facing jail time, fines, probation, community service, loss of your license, and alcohol treatment classes.

For instance, you could struggle to secure employment for the rest of your life due to a DWI charge on your record. Continue reading to learn more about how to reduce DWI charges and penalties.

Can You Reduce a DWI Crime and Penalties?

Most likely you are hoping for the best possible outcome to your case. Maybe you are hoping that the charge will be reduced to a lesser offense, which will have reduced impact in your life. Perhaps you are just hoping to avoid jail time. There are ways to get crimes reduced and, hopefully, the penalties and life consequences will be reduced along with them.

Plea agreements are a good way to get your charge and potential penalties reduced, but it’s important to have a lawyer help you negotiate a plea bargain.

Negotiations can be difficult, and only those who know the rules of the game will be any good at playing it. You don’t know the rules of the game and you probably don’t even know what cards you have to play with. Your Texas DWI lawyer can help to get your crime reduced, and in some cases, dismissed.
