DWI and traffic violations

Texas DWI and Traffic Violation Attorneys in Dallas and Other Areas

  • Why should I fight a traffic ticket?
  • How can I defend myself against a drunk driving charge, when the blood alcohol test result was over the legal limit?
If you were cited for driving without insurance, DWI , speeding or another traffic violation, you may be wondering why you should bother hiring a lawyer to defend you. Pleading guilty to a criminal traffic offense can have serious consequences that can last for years, particularly if you were accused of driving under the influence or reckless driving. A conviction for DWI will result in fines, a revoked or suspended driver’s license, and possible jail time. Even minor moving violations on your record may cause your insurance company to dramatically increase your auto insurance rates. If you are a commercial driver, your livelihood may be at stake.

Misdemeanor and Felony Traffic Violations
Most states use a point system for traffic violations and convictions. Points lost on a driver’s record depend on whether a violation involves an infraction, misdemeanor or felony. Texas also uses a system called ‘The Driver Responsibility Program,’ where additional surcharges are assessed for specific traffic violations.
Misdemeanors traffic violations are less serious in nature:
  • Misdemeanor DWI
  • Driving while license suspended (DWLS)
  • Driving with no insurance
  • Failure to stop at an accident

Felony violations typically involve repeat offenses or damage to lives and property:

  • Felony DWI
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Vehicular homicide
  • Fleeing a police officer
In defending against an impaired driving charge, you have many rights, including the right to cross-examine the witnesses against you, even if they are police officers. You have the right to challenge the results of a breath test or blood alcohol test. An experienced criminal defense attorney can make all the difference in even a difficult complicated case. We can help protect your rights and best interest.
