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.

What Happens When You Get a DWI in Texas? 

Most people understand the dangers of driving while intoxicated, and they also understand why this behavior has been outlawed. The trouble is that many people don’t feel intoxicated when they get behind the wheel of a vehicle. 

Maybe they think they’ve waited long enough for the effects of the alcohol to wear off. Maybe they don’t think they drank to the point of intoxication. Whatever the case may be, if you are pulled over after drinking alcohol, you could be charged with a DWI if the alcohol is still in your system. 

Whether you agree with the charge against you or not, you could face serious consequences if convicted of a DWI offense in Texas. Texas does not take kindly to drunk drivers, and you could be harshly punished.

Punishment for Drunk Driving in Texas

If you’ve been pulled over and arrested for a DWI, you are probably wondering what’s going to happen to you. This will depend a great deal on whether you’re convicted of the crime you have been charged with.

If your DWI is dismissed, the arrest may not affect your life much. You could spend a night in jail, have to pay to get your car out of an impound lot, or deal with a few other negative issues. In time, your life will go back to normal. 

But, if you’re convicted of a drunk driving crime, you could face serious consequences. You could go to jail, lose your drivers license, pay expensive fines, and deal with job loss or issues finding a job later in life due to your criminal record.

There are other non-legal consequences of a DWI, as well.

Can a DWI Be Dismissed?

If you avoid a conviction, you won’t have to face any of the negative consequences of a DWI. Fighting a DWI is possible, and you could win. Most people work with a DWI attorney because they know how to build your defense properly. They can examine your case to find the weaknesses.

They can come up with a defense strategy that might get your charge reduced or dismissed. People do avoid being convicted of DWIs all the time. Here are some defenses that could keep a DWI offense off your criminal record.

  • You were drinking but weren’t over the legal limit.
  • You weren’t drinking and driving at all, and there was some mistake.
  • During the arrest, your rights were violated.
  • The lab made errors when testing your specimen.
  • The field sobriety tests were faulty.
  • The police made errors that caused evidence to get thrown out.
  • There’s not enough evidence to convict you of a DWI.
