Arrested for DWI in Georgetown?
Step One: Contact Stephen T Bowling & Associates
Following a DWI arrest, contact us right away for immediate answers. We are available nights and weekends. We have had instances where a DWI charge was dismissed after we obtained evidence that would have otherwise been lost if we wouldn’t have sought it out immediately. These vary based on the case but a few we have seen are obtaining security camera footage or photos of the arrest area. We will schedule a free consultation where we explain the process and potential defenses to your DWI case.
Step Two: Arrange a DMV Hearing
In Texas, if you are arrested for driving while intoxicated, your driver’s license will be automatically suspended unless an Administrative License Revocation hearing is requested. In order to appeal the suspension, you will need to arrange a hearing with the Department of Public Safety. This hearing must be requested within 15 days of the day you received notice.
Step Three: Fight the DWI Charges
You are innocent until proven guilty. It may not feel that way based on bond conditions and the hassle that comes with having a pending criminal charge. The standard for an officer to arrest a person is far different than the standard for the state to convict that person. This means that although you were arrested it does not necessarily have to lead to a conviction. Despite the facts surrounding the arrest we will attack the charges with vigor on your behalf. We do this by challenging the methods and procedures used to arrest you and the science of the DWI breath or DWI blood test. No matter the facts, the team at Stephen T Bowling & Associates will work tirelessly as your DWI Lawyers to defend your case.
Step Four: Minimize the damage
If you are found guilty of a criminal offense, you will experience both mental and physical hardship. This can be in the form of serving jail time, dealing with probation, or dealing with a license suspension and surcharges. A DWI on your criminal record can preclude you from many employment opportunities and can permanently affect your reputation. In fact, a DWI in Texas can never be expunged, although it may be sealed. In some circumstances you may even be deported for a DWI conviction. As your Texas DWI Lawyers, we work diligently to prevent you from being convicted. The primary goal is to get a result in your case that will minimize the damage caused by a potential conviction.
WEEKDAYS: 8:30 am – 5 pm, after hours as needed
WEEKEND: Available for jail release and appointments
