DWI

An experienced criminal defense attorney can help protect your interests if you have been arrested for drunk driving in the Houston – Clear Lake – Galveston area. At Clear Lake Lawyers, we will work to protect your interests in both the criminal case and the administrative hearing about suspension of your driver's license.

If you have been arrested for drunk driving, Texas DWI law allows you to apply for an occupational driver's license within 15 days of your arrest. This is of the utmost importance, as you will be faced with the prospect of a lengthy suspension whether or not you ultimately defeat the criminal charges. An experienced attorney can help you handle all aspects of your DWI charge, including making sure that your right to drive while your case is pending is protected.

Negotiating an acceptable plea in a Texas drunk driving case is very difficult. An aggressive approach to your defense can lead to positive results in the pretrial and trial stages of your case. 

Our experience in defending DWI charges ranges from representing first time offenders to repeat offenders. We also work with juvenile offenders or underage drivers to make sure that their youthful mistakes won't follow them through the rest of their lives.

If you find yourself facing a more serious felony DWI charge as the result of a serious accident, Clear Lake Lawyers is more than capable of bringing its significant resources to your case.

A felony is a crime punishable by a prison sentence of at least one year. You may be able to receive a suspended sentence on your felony DWI conviction. However, you would still be responsible for large fines and court costs, increased insurance rates and a license suspension that could last years. Because a felony conviction can be so devastating, you want a lawyer who understands that they must act aggressively to ensure your rights are well represented.

Felony DWI charges include:

  • Intoxication manslaughter, or a fatal accident alleged to have been caused by a drunk driver
  • Intoxication assault, or an injury accident allegedly caused by drunk driving
  • Any third conviction of DWI
  • Drunk driving with a child passenger under the age of 15—even on a first DWI offense

A felony DWI case is handled as any other serious criminal charge. Our attorneys carefully evaluate the government's case against you and determine the accuracy of the charges and its weakest points. We will work toward shielding you from the risk of punishment to the greatest degree possible by tearing away at the government's case.

Because each case is unique, Clear Lake Lawyers looks at all the facts and circumstances surrounding each case. In some cases, these facts or circumstances can result in harsher penalties if you are convicted. We will work with you to create and implement a defense that will be presented aggressively by our attorneys. We will also keep you informed of your risks and any opportunities that might lead to a favorable resolution.

No matter the severity of your DWI charge, Clear Lake Lawyers will represent your defense intelligently and advocate for a positive outcome on your behalf. Contact our firm today so that we can work with you during this difficult time.
