Protecting Your License And Reputation Against DWI Charges
DWI charges can have serious consequences, even if no one was hurt and nothing was damaged. While any conviction for DWI charges is serious, having a charge on your record also make any subsequent charges come with worse consequences. This is why it is so important to fight any charges you are facing, even if it is your first offense.
At Quintana and Barajas, we understand the lasting impact a conviction can have on your life and are dedicated to minimizing this impact. We have spent more than 10 years defending clients throughout southern Texas. We are committed to helping our clients identify and pursue the outcome they deserve in their case. Our attorneys have the experience, skill and dedication to achieve that goal.
Building Your Defense Starts Here
The charges for a first offense can include up to $2,000 in fines, up to six months in jail, a temporarily suspended license and annual fees to keep your license, and a third offense can result in $10,000 in fines, 10 years in prison and up to two years of a suspended license. In addition to legal consequences, your reputation with friends and family may be damaged by your actions, and you may even lose your job.
It can feel like there is no defense against drunk driving charges, but we know how to look for viable defense strategies like:
- Proving you were not driving and had no intention of driving
- Establishing that the arresting officers conducted an illegal traffic stop
- Highlighting the poor evidence used against you
- Questioning breathalyzer test results
In addition to looking for these and other methods of beating your charges, we are also prepared to negotiate for reduced charges and sentencing to minimize the consequences of your case and keep your record as clear as possible. You can rest easy knowing that someone you trust is fighting for you.
