First-Offense DWI in Dallas, Texas

Aggressive Dallas DWI Lawyers in Your Corner

Most people who are arrested and charged with drinking and driving have never been in trouble with the law before. They are unfamiliar with the court system, afraid of losing their driver's license, and worried about the effect a DWI will have on their job and future.

If you were arrested for drunk driving in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, contact a Dallas DWI attorney who is experienced in representing people facing their first DWI charge—you need Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP. We have helped hundreds of drivers in Dallas, Collin, and Tarrant counties.

Call Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP at (214) 301-5007 for a free consultation.

We understand the strategies that police and prosecutors in your area use to win their cases. We are prepared to review the facts of your case, to conduct any necessary investigation to build a strong and effective defense, and to stand by you in both the administrative process (the ALR hearing) and the criminal drunk driving case.

You have only 15 calendar days to contact the Department of Public Safety to schedule an ALR hearing or your license will be automatically suspended. Do not delay. Getting a lawyer on your case as soon as possible gives you the best chance for a thorough and aggressive defense.

Potential Criminal Penalties for First-Offense DWI

Depending upon the facts of your case, you could face penalties of up to 180 days in county jail and a fine of up to $2,000, or up to two years of probation with a fine of up to $2,000 plus court costs. If you are on probation, you will likely have to attend an alcohol education class and perform many hours of community service.

Other Consequences of a DWI Conviction

Beyond the criminal penalties and possible loss of your driver's license, a DWI conviction can have a huge impact on your car insurance. Your carrier could increase the cost of your insurance, or they could drop you entirely.

You could also have problems on the job, depending upon the type of work you do. If you are a truck driver, a taxi driver, a nanny or chauffeur, or if you drive a company car, you may find your career sidelined temporarily or permanently.

Underage DUI

If you are under 21, you could face either a DUI or DWI charge. A DUI is a misdemeanor charge brought against a person under the age of 21 who has any detectable amount of alcohol in their system. Contact a Dallas DWI attorney today for representation that treats you for who you are—an individual who made a mistake.
