Protect Your Driving Privileges And Your Record When Charged With DWI/DUI/DWD

A drunk driving arrest or any serious traffic stop is frightening as well as potentially harmful in the long term. You may lose your driving privileges — and potentially lose your ability to make a living. If you have already experienced a fateful traffic stop when you were accused of driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving while distracted (DWD), you naturally wonder what to do next. Two steps you need to take are clear:

  1. Protect or recover your driver's license if you can
  2. Work with a lawyer in pursuit of a favorable outcome and if possible, avoidance of a criminal record

At Leeser Law Firm PLLC in San Antonio, we work with clients throughout the area from all walks of life. Many others also face these common legal challenges, as you do. From the beginning, we treat each person with respect, while not holding back critical information. You can count on honesty along with courteous, compassionate interactions with our lawyers and legal staff when you work with us.

Possible Defenses In Your DWI/DUI Case

You need a DWI lawyer if you hope to discover every opportunity and angle that may work in your favor. We urge you to begin this process right away while you can request an administrative review and potentially recover your driving privileges even before the criminal aspect of your case is resolved.

When we evaluate your DWI charges, we will ask questions such as:

  • Was the traffic stop justified?
  • Were field sobriety tests reasonable and reliable?
  • Did the law enforcement officer inform you of your right to speak with an attorney?
  • Are there complicating factors such as prior convictions or an accident that may make your case tougher — and your defense more critical?

Start the conversation with one of our lawyers. We look forward to helping you find the rays of hope you are looking for.

Considerations Regarding Your DWD Charges

A recently passed Texas law makes it illegal for drivers to "read, write or send an electronic message while operating a motor vehicle unless the vehicle is stopped." Violators will be cited and face fines of $25 to $99 for a first offense. The fine may not seem high but a record of distracted driving could cause problems you cannot foresee. You may face difficulties getting the job of your choosing. Your auto insurance rates may be higher as a result — a consequence that could add up to thousands of dollars over years.

The bottom line is: It is worth your while to fight your DWD charges if you can. Contact one of our criminal defense lawyers to discuss promising strategies for your case.
