Can Texas DWI Records Be Sealed?

DWI | 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 | DWI

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 | DUIA | DWI

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 [...]

Could Your Teen Be Charged with a Texas DWI This Prom Season?

Drunk Driving | DUIA | DWI

Juvenile drinking and driving have a high potential for serious crashes that could result in severe injuries and even death. Sadly, most kids neither have the history nor knowledge of all the things that might go wrong when they get behind the wheel drunk. Many of them are also so naïve that they believe bad things simply can’t happen to them.

This is probably why prom season has historically been a dangerous time for teen drivers in Texas. Prom brings parties and many other situations where teenagers are more likely to drink alcohol or use drugs. Some of these intoxicated teens will then get into cars and drive, oblivious to all the possible dangers that lie in wait.

A drunk [...]

Texans Don’t Have to Take a St. Paddy’s Day DWI Lying Down

Drunk Driving | DWI

Were you among those who contributed to the consumption of 819% more Guinness than usual this St. Paddy’s Day? Perhaps you were one of the 32% of men who admit they binge drink when the rivers turn green? More than anything, we hope you were not involved in any of the alcohol-related car crashes that statistically claim a life every 37 minutes over the St. Patrick’s Day holiday.

Of course, things aren’t always quite so cut-and-dried. Did you know Texas is a state in which a motorist can get a DWI without actually driving (our courts have defined the term “operating” quite broadly)? Or that there are a number of substances that can “read” as alcohol on a [...]

You Were One of Many Texans Arrested for a New Year’s DWI – Now What?

Drunk Driving | DWI

Every year, we celebrate New Year’s Eve with the intention and goal to start anew. To make ourselves better in the New Year.

Unfortunately, if you were arrested for DWI over New Year’s, you may have to work even harder to keep your resolutions – and one of them had better change to “fight back against my charges.”

Why? Because the consequences of a conviction are incredibly serious. It will not only cost you thousands, but also force you to put your life on hold.

Sadly, this is something that many Texans will likely be going through this year. Over 400 people across the state were arrested for DWI as we rang in 2018, and the numbers for this year [...]
