I'm Charged With a DWI - Now What?
When you get a DWI in Austin what happens is you're actually facing two things, you're, number one, facing your criminal charge but you're also facing the driver's license suspension side. What happens is you have 15 days to put in a driver's license hearing request, and when that request is in that allows us to put the officer on the stand under oath and ask him questions before we get to the criminal case so we can see how he testifies and how he does. On the criminal side, they take you and do your booking. If you don’t have much in your criminal history, they'll release you on a PR bond, which is a promise to come back with a small processing fee. And then, from there, I meet with the client, discuss their case with them, and look for weaknesses. It's important you find an attorney that knows what they're doing, that knows the DUI laws and the cases and what to look for when they're fighting your case. Please don’t hesitate to contact our office for the DWI defense you need.
