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.

Hurst DWI Lawyer

You might think a DWI is unbeatable, but the truth is that a Hurst DWI defense attorney can help you find a way to challenge the charge against you.

Since over 10,000 Americans die as a result of drinking and driving every year, almost every state has made penalties for the offense particularly harsh—as anyone hit with a drunk driving charge can tell you.

Whether your blood alcohol content (BAC) was over the legal limit or not, the police are often eager to arrest people for driving while intoxicated (DWI). Even if you think you were guilty, that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to get your name cleared of the charge.

For the best chance of avoiding a drunk driving conviction, contact a Hurst DWI lawyer at the Law Offices of Jeff C. Kennedy today.

Drunk Driving Penalties: Know What’s at Stake

If you are convicted for DWI, you’ll face harsh repercussions, which increase in severity if you have past convictions on your record.

Texas state law prohibits anyone from operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content exceeding .08 percent. Commercial drivers have to deal with an even lower threshold.

Getting hit with a DWI for the first time can result in the following penalties upon conviction:

  • Paying a fine up to $2,000
  • Spending up to six months in jail
  • One-year loss of license
  • The imposition of expensive annual fees to keep your license once you reobtain it

Subsequent offenses often result in similar types of penalties, although of a greater magnitude. Upon your third offense, DWI becomes a state jail felony.

It’s also important to note that Texas law mandates that no one, including a vehicle’s driver or passengers, can have an open container of alcohol in the car at any time, regardless of whether the vehicle is in motion.

The Right Defense to Beat Your DWI

If you feel like there’s no way out of your drunk driving case, this is where a Hurst DWI attorney comes into the picture. Over the years, our firm has obtained full charge dismissals for many of our DWI clients—it all depends on utilizing the right defense for your case.

For example, you may be able to prove that the police officer who pulled you over had no probable cause for making the stop, or that they otherwise violated your constitutional rights (e.g., you were forced to take a blood test without a valid warrant).

If you did take a blood test, it’s smart to call into question the validity of its results, as oftentimes a reading might be skewed due to various circumstances outside of your control.

Your attorney might be able to call into question the methods used or the insight provided by an expert witness neither of which are infallible.

These are just some of the many defenses that might be available to you, and your DWI lawyer will identify the most potent one to employ on your behalf.
