The Legislature has imposed strict consequences upon those convicted of the offense of Driving While Intoxicated. For instance, one accused of DWI remains ineligible to receive a deferred adjudication; that is, the opportunity to have the charges dismissed following the successful completion of a probation. Further, a conviction for DWI results in the payment of a surcharge of a minimum of $1,000.00/year for three years just to retain a valid driver's license. Because of these severe implications, one charged with DWI demands quality representation.

Our investigation begins with a comprehensive review of the videotape of your arrest at the scene and subsequent transport to the station. This evaluation reveals police conduct that aids our office in judging the legality of your arrest. Further, the videotape captures your performance on the Standard Field Sobriety Tests and your overall demeanor throughout the arrest.
