Intoxication Manslaughter

Arrested? A Dallas Defense Lawyer Can Help!

If you have been charged with DWI after being in an accident that involved a death, you may also be facing very serious second degree felony charges of intoxication manslaughter. We advise you to hire an experienced DWI defense attorney as soon as possible after you have been charged, or think you may be charged. The sooner you have representation, the sooner you can protect yourself from the legal ramifications of your case.

Contact Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP for a free consultation today.

We have the experience you can rely on for aggressive and effective defense strategies against the charges. At Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP, we don't believe there is any such thing as being “slam-dunk” guilty. No matter what the circumstances of the accident are, your personal story is behind the charges and will make a difference in the outcome of your case. We will make sure that the judge and jury know that this isn't just about an intoxication manslaughter case. It is about you and your family.

We Understand the Burden of Proof

In Texas, intoxication manslaughter is a defined very specifically apart from involuntary manslaughter. Typically, manslaughter cases will require the prosecution to prove that the person charged must not only be guilty of the act, but also have some recognition of negligence when committing an act that resulted in a death. Under Texas intoxication manslaughter law, however, the prosecution has a lower standard of proof of the "guilty mind" and must only prove that the driver was intoxicated.

If you have been charged with intoxication manslaughter, your attorney will seek to raise reasonable doubt about your level of intoxication and the police officer's probable cause for charging you with DWI at the time of the accident. We have the experience you can rely on.

Contact our offices in Dallas, Texas, to schedule a free consultation with a DWI defense attorney.
