As an Austin Criminal Defense Lawyer and Austin DWI Lawyer I am often asked what is “the right to remain silent.”

The “right to remain silent” is a Constitutional Right in the 5th Amendment of the United States Constitution that allows a person to remain silent and not incriminate themselves when being questioned by officers while in custody.

What is the “right to talk to a lawyer?”

How do I invoke Miranda Rights after I have already waived them?

These questions and more are discussed in the applicable links by an Austin Criminal Defense Lawyer | Austin DWI Lawyer.

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?

While every case depends on the facts and circumstances at play, mounting an aggressive defense to DWI charges may be your best option.
