San Angelo Lawyer For DWI And DUI Charges An arrest for drunk driving is an event with many potential aftereffects. If you are convicted of driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving under the influence (DUI), you can lose your driving privileges, be required to pay large fines, see a significant increase in your insurance premiums, spend time in jail or experience other unwanted consequences. In Texas, you can be found guilty of DWI if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08 or above and you were mentally or physically impaired behind the wheel. For drivers under the age of 21, any detectable amount of alcohol on breath can get you arrested for DUI. Working To Minimize The Impact On Your Life At the office of San Angelo DWI attorney Shawntell McKillop, we have helped many people successfully defend themselves against drunk driving charges. Our job is to help you or a loved one minimize the impact of a DWI or DUI charge if your case involves: A first or second DWI arrest A third DWI, which is a felony in Texas Intoxicated assault Intoxicated manslaughter Rising or declining BAC As your law firm, we will work to help you avoid a criminal conviction whenever possible. Because drunk driving charges rest on potentially flawed breath tests and the subjective observations of law enforcement officers during traffic stops, it is possible to challenge evidence and seek less serious penalties or dismissal of the charges. Diversion And Occupational Licenses If this is your first DWI or DUI, we may be able to facilitate your acceptance into the county’s pretrial diversion program. Successful completion of the program will get a drunk driving charge dismissed after a year. A drunk driving charge leads to an automatic suspension of a driver’s license 40 days after the arrest. If you were charged with drunk driving, it is important to remember that you have only 15 days from the time of arrest to file for an ALR (Administrative License Review) hearing to contest a suspension of your driver’s license.
