Texas DWI Law


With Texas DWI laws, we can just fill out the necessary forms and talk to the District Attorney — but is this the best option for your Texas DWI case? The best choice for your case might be to fight! And if that’s the best option, that’s what we’ll focus on. At the very least, we’ll ensure you are being treated fairly and that your rights under Texas law are being protected. Many times those arrested for drunk driving do not take the incident seriously. But the fact is a driving while intoxicated (DWI) or a driving under the influence (DUI) is a very serious matter, especially the mistakes most people make after being arrested for a DWI in Texas.

The District Attorney’s Office prosecutes Texas DWI / DUI cases every week. They know Texas DWI law and are willing to use them against you, finding all possible fine points and using them as leverage against your Texas DWI case.

According to Texas DWI laws, the District Attorney must only prove that after drinking, you were not able to drive your car safely or that your blood alcohol exceeded a certain limit. With Texas DWI laws, that sounds pretty cut and dried – but is it really? Stephen says NO!

If challenged, the District Attorney must show

– The arresting officer made the arrest properly…
– You were properly advised of your rights…
– The equipment used to test your blood alcohol level was functioning properly…
– The person operating that equipment was certified to operate it…

If the District Attorney gets any information which would prove you innocent, as a skilled Lubbock defense attorney we can make him give up that information. And that’s where Stephen Hamilton, Attorneys At Law come in! Any of these items may be helpful in weakening the DA’s case against you and the related Texas DWI laws. What often appears simple can get very complex with respect to Texas DWI laws.

As your criminal defense attorneys we will insist that all information be provided so that we can walk you through all this information and discuss on how to proceed with your case. You need an attorney who knows how to guide your case through Texas DWI laws and the complexities of the Texas legal system. You need an experienced defense attorney with a proven track record.
