DWI and DUI?

When you are charged with a DUI, you face the possibility of hefty fines, jail time and the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. This can happen both in criminal court and at the DMV.

If you have been arrested for and charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Texas, you must act quickly to save your driver’s license. You have only 15 days from the date of your arrest to request an administrative hearing (ALR) to challenge the revocation of your driver’s license.

Seeking to Mitigate DUI Penalties

If convicted of a DUI, you could face jail time, large fines and a revocation of your driver’s license. Attorney Thomas D.Carter, IV is a skilled negotiator prepared to seek a reduced sentence. He often consults therapists to help support claims that you will likely benefit from alcohol treatment in exchange for less jail time.

Protecting Your Driver’s License and Freedom Following a DWI Arrest

In every DWI case, there are two distinct stages — one for the criminal aspects of your charge and another to deal with the administrative implications. Success in both the criminal and civil parts of the case is critical to minimizing effects that a DWI can have on your life, especially on your ability to drive. If you fail to address either one, you will face serious repercussions.

Thomas D. Carter, IV has a personal commitment to each client — you will never have to wonder whether he is doing all he can to successfully handle your case. You will always have a direct line to getting answers to the questions you have about a wide range of Texas DWI charges including:

  • DWI, first offense
  • DWI, second offense
  • Intoxication manslaughter/assault
  • Felony DWI
  • Underage drunk driving

Texas statutes consider DWI an enhanceable offense, meaning the more convictions you receive, the greater the penalties you face if convicted again. It is important to know that you have the right to challenge breath, blood and urine tests that indicate that you were driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
