defending against dwi charges

Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) charges in Texas carry significant legal consequences and can impact every facet of your life, from your ability to drive to potential employment opportunities. At Vargas Guerra LLP, we specialize in providing vigorous defense for individuals facing DWI charges. Our goal is to navigate you through this challenging time with strategic legal counsel and dedicated representation. This page outlines our approach to DWI cases and how we can help protect your rights and minimize the impact of these charges on your future.

Understanding DWI Charges in Texas

In Texas, DWI charges are not limited to alcohol intoxication but also include impairment due to drugs, whether prescription, over-the-counter, or illegal substances. The legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit is 0.08% for drivers 21 years and over, and any detectable amount for drivers under 21. Consequences of a DWI conviction can range from fines and license suspension to imprisonment, depending on the offense's severity and the presence of aggravating factors.

How Vargas Guerra LLP Can Assist You

Personalized Defense Strategy: Every DWI case is unique. Our approach starts with understanding the specifics of your situation, from the details of your arrest to your personal and professional circumstances. We then tailor a defense strategy aimed at achieving the most favorable outcome.

Challenging the Evidence: A critical part of defending against DWI charges involves questioning the accuracy and legality of the evidence against you, including the traffic stop, field sobriety tests, and breathalyzer or blood tests. Our legal team has the expertise to scrutinize the prosecution's case for any procedural errors or inconsistencies.

Negotiations and Plea Bargaining: When appropriate, we may negotiate with prosecutors to reduce the charges or penalties you're facing. Our extensive experience in DWI cases allows us to effectively advocate for alternative penalties, such as probation or diversion programs, that can lessen the impact on your life.

Trial Representation: If your case goes to trial, our attorneys are prepared to defend you vigorously in court. We'll present a compelling case on your behalf, leveraging our legal knowledge and courtroom experience to fight for a not guilty verdict.

License Suspension Hearings: A DWI arrest can result in the automatic suspension of your driver's license. We represent clients in Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearings to contest license suspensions and seek to maintain your driving privileges while your case is pending.
