What is the legal limit for drinking and driving is a complicated question. The definition of intoxicated in Texas is either .08 or above, or not having the normal use of your mental faculties, or not having the normal use of your physical faculties by introduction of alcohol, drugs, or any combination.

The “drugs” can be illegal drugs or prescription drugs, or even over-the-counter drugs. Even though a person isn’t a .08 on his or her breath or blood test, it doesn’t mean that they can’t be charged with a DWI.

If you’ve been charged with a DWI you want to speak to an experienced attorney who knows what to look for and knows what intoxicated is in order to properly advocate for you and your DWI charge. Call today for a free DWI consultation where we will discuss your case and possible defenses.

Proven Defense by a Former Law Enforcement Officer

Many people who are charged with an Austin DWI just assume there is no way to fight it. They think the best they can hope for is a smaller fine or a reduction in the amount of time they lose their license. We focus on defending anyone accused of a DWI. With the right legal counsel, there are other outcomes. Depending on the facts of the case, what if

  • Instead of months of suspension, you don’t lose your license at all?
  • Instead of making a deal for probation, you never get convicted?
  • Instead of having a DWI conviction, your record stays clean?
  • Instead of cutting bad deals, you get a vigorous DWI defense?
