Advocate committed to challenging drunk driving charges
I understand that good people can make mistakes. I strive to satisfy my clients’ emotional, financial and legal needs by zealously representing your interests at every turn. I am knowledgeable about complex Texas DWI laws, and analyze every aspect of your case — from the initial traffic stop to breathalyzer, and blood test — to build your defense. I know what the prosecution needs to get a conviction, and I challenge the evidence against you with the skill I have developed. I work hard to make sure that you get the respect you deserve and the results you desire.
What to do if you are stopped
If you have been pulled over by the police, there are several ways that you can help yourself:
- Do not be intimidated by the police. If you are nervous, police officers may think that you are hiding something or are intoxicated. Don’t give them that opportunity. Remaining calm and being polite are good ways to ensure that police officers leave you alone.
- Clean out your glove box. Fumbling through these compartments to find your registration or insurance can be easily misinterpreted as intoxication. Keeping the glove box or center console neat and clean allows you to swiftly grab your identification and present it to a police officer.
- You do not have to consent to a request for a vehicle search. Any evidence found in your car could be used to support a DWI conviction. The officer needs consent, probable cause, or warrant.
- Take the sobriety test. Many DWI defendants have been found not guilty due to a malfunctioning breath analyzing machine or an improperly administered blood or urine test. Also, you may still blow under the legal limit.
- Get a blood test after release. Alcohol detection devices can be unreliable and malfunction. Don’t go to jail because of a broken machine. When practical, it’s a good idea to measure your BAC (blood alcohol concentration) with a blood test after arrest.
- Contact a DWI attorney immediately. Do not delay.
