Plano DWI Attorney
Facing drunk driving charges?
After you are charged with a DWI, you may not know which direction to turn next. You know you want to avoid a conviction, but how do you get there? If you are facing a DWI charge in Texas, get in touch with a DWI attorney from The Zendeh Del Law Firm. The state of Texas takes drunk driving extremely seriously, which is why you need to obtain skilled legal help as soon as possible. Depending on the particulars of your charge, you may be facing consequences such as license revocation, fines and even jail time if convicted. According to the

Anyone who is driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 percent or higher is considered to be a drunk driver. If an officer pulls you over and administers field sobriety tests that you fail, you will likely be charged with a DWI. One of such field sobriety tests is a breath test. Many convictions rest upon the evidence that a breath test gives, but if the breath test was administered in an incorrect manner or the machine was found to be faulty then charges will be dropped or lessened. Our firm is skilled in obtaining the evidence that you need in order to obtain a just outcome for your DWI case. You can trust the skill and aggressiveness of the attorneys at this firm to deliver the results that you need.
DWI Laws in Texas
Each state has different laws when it comes to how to handle DWI charges. Convictions also differ depending on the presence of any prior offenses. In the state of Texas, a first drunk driving offense will warrant any of the following penalties: 3 to 180 days in jail, up to $2,000 in fines, and 90 to 365 of suspended license. With each subsequent offense the penalties get steeper. A
multiple DWI second offense could land a person in jail for a maximum of one year and $4,000 in fines. Both a second and third offense could warrant a license suspension of up to two years. In Texas, there is an implied consent law. This means that anyone who has a driver's license agrees to submit themselves to
field sobriety tests. The penalty for refusing a breath or blood test can be an automatic license suspension and fines.
DWI Issues You May Be Facing
DWI is not a one-size-fits-all kind of crime. There are many different types of issues and charges you may be facing. 15 days after you are charged with any type of DWI, you are required to attend an ALR hearing. This stands for "Administrative License Revocation Program" and its purpose is to fairly evaluate DWI cases to determine the necessity of a license suspension. ALR hearings are for the benefit of the driver, because when drivers do not schedule them, their licenses are automatically suspended. If you choose to schedule a hearing, you have the opportunity to save your license. It is always beneficial to have a DWI expert present at these cases so that you get the best defense possible. They can present evidence against
BAC findings in order to lessen or drop your charge altogether.
Many people who are charged with a DWI are temporarily placed in jail on bail. Many people cannot afford to bail their loved ones out of jail. The attorneys at Zendeh Del can help you handle bail bond issues so that you can live life as normal before your hearing. The firm has also handled many commercial driver's license issues (CDL DWI). If a driver of commercial vehicle is found to have a BAC of .04 percent or higher, they can be charged with drunk driving. We even handle
boating while intoxicated cases. The attorneys at our firm are prepared to
challenge DWI evidence so that a positive outcome can be reached in your favor. Our firm possesses the tactics that you need to achieve these kinds of case results whether you were charged with
intoxication assault or anything in between.
