Pulled Over in TX? Know Your Rights To Prevent a DWI Arrest

If you are ever one of these people, you need to remember that you still have rights if you want to avoid problems. This is particularly true where DWIs are concerned.

In this post, we’re going to cover what your rights are in the event you are pulled over by the police and what you should do. Remember that these [...]

Did You Wind Up with a Texas DWI on NYE…with a Child in the Car?

Child Endangerment | DUI

During New Year’s Eve, police routinely increase patrol cars in an effort to identify intoxicated drivers more quickly to prevent accidents.

As a result, many more people get charged for DWI over the holidays than usual. In some cases, individuals will face charges of DWI with a child passenger. These cases are a lot more severe.

If you happened to be part of that unlucky bunch over NYE 2020, know that consulting with an experienced Texas DWI lawyer is your legal right. It is also one of the best chances you have for understanding your charges and developing the best possible defense for your case.

Can Texas DWI Records Be Sealed?

DUI | Expungment/Criminal Record Sealing

A DWI on your criminal record isn’t just embarrassing. It can seriously hinder you from moving forward with your life. Employers, landlords, and the public can easily access your past mistakes and use them against you.

What you may not know is state laws allow many Texans to seal their records after they’ve served their time. If you do know, you may not be aware that some charges don’t qualify.

Questions we often field from clients are specifically about your Texas DWI records, and whether they can be sealed. The short answer is “yes…but there are rules.”

Yes, But There Are Rules

In 2017, Texas lawmakers proposed HB 3016. The bill set out to expand the laws regarding orders [...]

More Texans Will Drive Drunk Over Halloween – Don’t Get Charged

Drunk Driving | DUI

Halloween looks very different as you grow up. As an adult, Halloween is all about late-night costume parties with friends. Maybe that means driving across town to a friend’s house or to a local bar.

For children, Halloween means trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. The streets are their playground…our littlest neighbors running across to the next house or catching up with their friends.

This combination has proven year after year again to be extremely dangerous. Let’s take a look at the tragic statistics…

The Tragic Statistics of Halloween Drunk Driving

Halloween is the deadliest day when it comes to child pedestrian fatalities. Kids are twice as likely to be killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year.

You’re Facing a Texas DWI…Again – What It Means

Drunk Driving | DUI | DUIA

Have you heard the old Texas Department of Transportation campaign slogan, Don’t Mess with Texas? It was an effort begun back in the 1980s to reduce litter along Texas highways statewide, but since then has taken on a much larger meaning.

In fact, today it seems to apply quite well to repeat DWI offenders here in the Lone Star State. Especially when statistics say they currently account for one of every 20 people serving in Texas prisons – nearly three dozen of whom are in for life.

So, how does a Texas DWI offender go from facing a year or so with no driver’s license to spending the rest of their life in jail?

Today we specifically cover how [...]
