Driving While Intoxicated in Houston

Houston Criminal DWI/DUI Defense Lawyer

If you have been arrested for DWI/DUI, it is important to contact an experienced lawyer immediately. Failing to act quickly could jeopardize important rights, such as your ability to fight any license suspension or to prepare a solid defense for trial. You have fifteen days from the date of your arrest to start these critical aspects of your defense. If you have a CDL or commercial driver’s license, this process is even more important.

The punishment for a DWI/DUI charge will vary depending on how many times you have been convicted:

  • DWI/DUI 1st Offense, if your BAC was below .15: Class B Misdemeanor
  • DWI/DUI 2nd Offense, or if your BAC was over .15 (even if it is your 1st Offense): Class A Misdemeanor
  • DWI/DUI 3rd Offense: Third Degree Felony
