Aggressive Defense Against Texas DWI Charges
Law enforcement agencies are committed to bringing an end to DWI in Texas. Police routinely set up saturation patrols in Denton and the surrounding communities, hoping to spot impaired motorists. If you are stopped by police under the suspicion of driving while intoxicated, you need to contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible to begin building a defense to these allegations. At James H. Horton Law Firm, P.C., our attorneys have over 50 years of combined experience defending against drunk driving charges. Our lead attorney, Jim Horton, is a specialist in criminal law, as certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and has handled over 200 jury trials and 400 bench trials throughout the state.
Helping You Keep Your Driving Privileges
Prosecutors are very aggressive with DWI cases, and you need to be sure that you understand that you are facing serious penalties if you are convicted of the offense. Whether this is your first DWI arrest or you are facing felony DWI charges due to repeat DWI convictions, you need to take immediate action to protect your rights. We help with several different aspects of your drunk driving case, including:
- Reviewing videotape of the traffic stop to ensure police followed all procedures
- Examining the qualifications of technicians responsible for administering blood, breath or chemical tests
- Challenging the accuracy of the results of these tests
- Working with prosecutors to reach an agreement on lesser charges, or to dismiss your case altogether, if possible
Many people do not know that the state has the ability to suspend your driver’s license even if you offer up a successful defense to the drinking and driving charges. The Texas Department of Public Safety can revoke your driving privileges if you fail to submit to blood or breath tests if requested by the officer. We can help you contest this suspension, and possibly help you obtain an occupational license so that you are able to drive to and from work.
