According to the Texas Penal Code, any person who is found to be operating a motor vehicle in the state of Texas while under the influence of drugs or alcohol could be arrested, charged and convicted for driving while intoxicated (DWI). If you have been pulled over for a suspected DWI and you fail field sobriety tests or your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.08 or higher, you will be placed under arrest. Should your arrest be as a result of an alcohol- or drug-related accident you could face additional charges and penalties depending on the circumstances leading up to the accident and extent of the injuries sustained. In either instance, it is extremely vital that you hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to help protect your rights.
A knowledgeable criminal defense attorney from my firm will be able to advise you of your rights, thoroughly investigate the moments leading up to your arrest, challenge the results of your field sobriety tests, blood tests or breathalyzer test, seek to have any inaccurate or illegally-obtained evidence excluded from your case, and work tirelessly to have the charges against you reduced or fully dismissed. Without an attorney on your side you could end up involuntarily incriminating yourself, regardless of whether or not you were at fault, and that may lead to your incarceration. By hiring an attorney you will have an aggressive advocate working hard to see that your rights, freedom and future are protected.
If you have been arrested for DWI do not answer any questions. Even if law enforcement officers or the prosecution attempt to convince you there is sufficient evidence for your conviction, exercise your First Amendment rights and contact the Rosen & Kovach, PLLC first. As a former prosecutor for the state of Texas, and a criminal defense specialist who has been certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and has spent the last 30 years representing clients in all types of different DWI and criminal defense cases, I know what it takes to provide you with the aggressive representation that can get results in court.
You owe it to yourself to protect your future and preserve your freedom. Contact a Fort Bend County criminal defense lawyer from my firm today.
