You don’t need a lawyer to tell you that drunk driving is dangerous. You don’t need a lawyer to
tell you that driving while intoxicated (DWI) is against the law in Texas or that the penalties
upon conviction are harsh and can upend your life. But if you are facing DWI charges in North
Texas, you absolutely do need a lawyer who has the knowledge, experience, and tenacity to
protect you from prosecutors determined to convict you.
Everything Is at Risk After a DWI
The moment you see those flashing lights in your rearview mirror and are pulled over for
suspicion of DWI is the moment that a potentially life-changing ordeal begins. An arrest alone
can cost you your driving privileges and stain your reputation among family, friends, and
colleagues. A conviction can put you behind bars, cost you hefty fines, and keep you off the road
for a long time. If your DWI charges involve a serious injury or the death of another person, or if
you have multiple DWI convictions, you could face years in prison.
With so much at stake, you can’t afford to take chances by trying to defend the charges yourself
or waiting to see what prosecutors do next. The sooner you retain an experienced North Texas
DWI defense attorney, the sooner you can begin to take control of your future.
At Warren & Migliaccio, we understand that facing DWI charges is a scary and unsettling
experience. When you meet with us for your free initial consultation, we’ll provide answers and
guidance that can ease your mind while we develop the best approach to defend your case. Our
goal is always to obtain an acquittal or dismissal of the charges against you, attacking the
prosecution’s evidence and witnesses at every turn. If a plea agreement offers a better
opportunity for a positive outcome, we will work with prosecutors to find alternative sentencing
arrangements that can minimize the disruption to your life or consequences for your future.
There Is Always Hope When Facing DWI Charges
Many Texans think that a DWI case must involve a driver with a blood alcohol concentration
(BAC) of .08 or above. That is wrong on two levels. First, you can be arrested and charged with
DWI even if your BAC is below .08 if police conclude that you are too impaired to drive. This
means you can be arrested and charged with DWI regardless of the level of alcohol in your
Second, people charged with DWI often feel that they are out of luck and will be automatically
convicted if they registered .08 or above on their breath, blood, or chemical test. That is also not
true. You have defenses no matter what those tests supposedly show.
From the moment you are pulled over, law enforcement officials can make mistakes or violate
your rights in numerous ways that could be the key to a dismissal of the charges against you. The
traffic stop may have been improper, or the officer may have conducted field sobriety tests
incorrectly. Breathalyzers are notoriously unreliable, and if the machine was not properly
maintained and calibrated or the testing did not follow proper protocols, the evidence reflecting
your alleged blood alcohol level may be thrown out.
