If you are facing a DWI charge in Texas, get in touch with an attorney from The Zendeh Del Law Firm.

Anyone who is driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 percent or higher is considered to be driving under the influence. If an officer pulls you over and administers
field sobriety tests that you fail, you will likely be charged with a DWI. Many convictions rest upon the evidence that a chemical test gives, including results from a breathalyzer. If the breath test was administered in an incorrect manner or the machine was found to be faulty then the charges may be dropped or reduced in severity.

Texas DWI Penalties
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 time DWI offense could warrant any of the following penalties:
- 3 to 180 days in jail
- Up to $2,000 in fines
- 90 to 365 days with a 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, as well as other harsh consequences. 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 offenses are not a one-size-fits-all kind of crime. There are many different types of issues and charges you may be facing. Just 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 without 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 and cannot afford to pay bail. 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. If a driver of a commercial vehicle is found to have a BAC of .04 percent or higher, they can be charged with a
CDL DWI. We even handle cases of
boating while intoxicated charges. 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.
