  • Blood Tests
  • Boating While Intoxicated
  • Breath Tests
  • Commercial Driver DWI
  • Drug-Related DWI
  • DWI Involving Children

Aggressively Fighting Your DWI Charges

Do not answer questions from the police, no matter what they promise you.

Remember, law enforcement has their own interests that are not the same as yours. Aside from basic information and identification, you are not legally required to answer any questions. The smart choice is to ask for your Houston DWI defense lawyer right away and let us speak for you.

Remember that you have rights. These include:

  • The right to remain silent
  • The right to receive a Miranda warning if questioned
  • The right to hear your charges
  • The right to legal search protocols
  • Rights regarding roadside testing

Texas DWI Laws

Depending on your age, passengers in your vehicle, and whether this is your first DWI, penalties in Texas can include fines, license suspensions, jail time, and prison time. Since blood alcohol content results can register differently from person to person, it is possible you may have been charged unfairly.

Your Ally throughout the Process

Once you have been charged with DWI, you will need to attend a number of hearings. Turnbull Legal Group will inform you of what will take place at each one and advise you how to best position yourself. Our aim is to illuminate the weaknesses of the prosecution's case against you, such as whether the breathalyzer was properly calibrated or whether the arresting officer had a reason to pull you over or search your vehicle.
