DWI Defense Attorney in Fort Worth

Aggressive Defense for Serious Charges

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is considered very serious due to the potential threat to public safety. Because of this, law enforcement officials will often do whatever they can to make an arrest. Prosecutors will often seek the harshest, most severe penalties possible. If you have been arrested or charged with DWI in Texas, time is not on your side.

It is important to remember that you have rights. Often, in their efforts to make an arrest, cops will unlawfully search or detain you. They may try to coerce you into making a statement or convince you to let them search your vehicle. It is critical to the outcome of your case that you remember your rights—and enact them. One of these rights is the right to an attorney. If you or your loved one has been arrested for DWI in Texas, contact Bryan E. Wilson and get the Texas Law Hawk on your side.

Texas DWI Law: Understanding the Basics

Texas DWI laws prohibit you from operating a motor vehicle if you are inebriated. Inebriation is measured by blood alcohol content/concentration (BAC), or the percentage of ethanol in the bloodstream as measured by grams of alcohol per 100 mL of blood.

In Texas, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle if:

  • Your BAC is 0.08% or above and you are at least 21 years old
  • Your BAC is 0.04% or above if you are a commercial vehicle driver and at least 21 years old
  • There is any detectable amount of alcohol in your blood and you are a minor (under 21)

The amount of drinks it takes to hit the legal limit depends on several factors, including your body weight, the amount of time between drinks, and even your gender. For example, if you are a 120-pound woman, two 12-ounce beers can be enough to put you at 0.08% BAC. If you are a 180-pound man, you may be over the legal limit if you drink three 12-ounce beers and a shot of whiskey.

BAC is most often measured via field sobriety tests and breathalyzer tests. However, it can also be measured through blood or urine tests. Learn more about DWI tests here.

Penalties for DWI in Texas

In Texas, the penalties for a DWI conviction vary widely depending on the specific circumstances involved in your arrest. However, as previously mentioned, DWI penalties tend to be very harsh. You may face steep fines, driver’s license revocation, community service, and imprisonment—even for a first-time offense. If you are a minor or a commercial vehicle driver, you may face even stricter penalties.
