Driving While Intoxicated Attorney in Houston, Texas
It’s unfortunate that many of the individuals who are charged with drunk driving are good people just like you who are being falsely accused or just made an honest mistake. People of all types are charged with DWI – teachers, doctors, moms and dads, and even other lawyers. Because of the potential damage that can be caused while driving under the influence, the law in Texas has become tough on drinking and driving.
However, as the laws are becoming more and more harsh, it is not illegal to drive a vehicle after drinking alcohol in Texas. Arrests are issued based on how much alcohol is consumed and how impaired that person appears to be to the police officers. As soon as you’re arrested, the clock starts ticking on securing your ability to continue driving and avoiding possible jail time. Whether or not the police officer who made the arrest did his job correctly can often determine a conviction, and that’s where the help of an attorney is crucial.

Types of DWI Charges
If you are charged with DWI in Texas, there are actually two different types of legal charges that are brought against you. The first one is a civil offense commonly referred to as Administrative License Revocation (or ALR) which is brought forth by the Department of Public Safety (DPS). In addition to this, you will face the criminal charges brought forth as a result of your arrest. These vary in severity based on a number of factors, such as whether or not this is your first DWI. Unfortunately, an ALR can suspend your ability to drive from 90 days to several years or more. The penalties for a DWI conviction can be harsh and life-changing.
