Areas of Law Description
At the Law Office of Christopher N. Hoover, located in Dallas, we represent clients for DWI defense in Texas:
- DWI Penalties
Penalties for a DWI in Texas vary depending on how many DWI convictions you have had and whether or not you were driving with any passengers under the age of 15. If you are pulled over by a police officer who suspects you of driving while intoxicated (DWI), be prepared to consult an experienced DWI attorney, who is up-to-date on Texas DWI laws, and who can help guide you through the legal process of avoiding a DWI conviction.
- DWI First Offense
A DWI first time offense in Texas can carry fines up to $2,000 and jail sentencing anywhere from 3 to 180 days. Not to mention, when you are pulled over and arrested for DWI as a first time offender, your driverís license may be suspended for 90 days to 12 months. Afterwards, if you are convicted of a DWI first offense, you will be required to pay annual fees to keep your driverís license. These annual fees can cost $1,000 to $2,000 for 3 years.
- DWI Second Offense
The Law Office of Christopher N. Hoover in Dallas, Texas, works with clients who have been charged with DWI second offense in Rockwall, Dallas, Denton, Tarrant and Collin County. Anytime there is a charge or an arrest for DWI, our law firm is knowledgeable and skilled to fight the Texas DWI penalties pending against anyone. With 100% of our focus on cases involving Texas DWI laws, we continuously strive to give our clients the most effective results.
- DWI Third Offense
Texas DWI third offense charges are extremely serious and carry expensive fines up to $10,000. If you or someone you love has been charged and arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Rockwall, Texas or Dallas, Texas, including Denton, Tarrant and Collin counties, you need the best possible DWI defense attorney who will serve as your advocate and help protect your rights.
- Multiple DWI
Having more than a 1st DWI, 2nd DWI, or 3rd DWI offense on your record can lead to maximum fines and penalties, including 10 years in prison, for multiple DWI. If you are charged and arrested for multiple DWI in Texas, the State may require you to enroll in an alcohol or drug treatment program; they may seize your license; they may require you to pay annual fines and Texas DWI surcharges; and they can require you to install a Deep Lung Device (DLD) that measures your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level, before you can start your car.
- Obstruction of Highway Charges
An Obstruction of Highway charge is a Class B misdemeanor in Texas that is usually offered by the prosecution in plea bargains, giving those charged with DWI an alternative option to plead guilty to a lesser offense. Sometimes the State will reduce DWI charges to obstruction of highway charges, if they feel they have a weak case.
- DWI Surcharges
If you are convicted of DWI in Texas, the Texas DWI penalties will cost you thousands of dollars each year. Texas State law will require you to pay a three-year DWI surcharge to the Texas Department of Public Safety. These Texas DWI surcharges are unavoidable if convicted, and the best solution, if you are charged and arrested for driving while intoxicated, is to hire an experienced DWI defense attorney, who thoroughly understands the Texas DWI laws.
- DWI Expunction
At the Law Office of Christopher N. Hoover in Dallas, Texas, we believe everyone who has been charged and arrested for DWI, or any type of criminal offense, deserves a chance to start over with a clean slate. This means we can represent people who are eligible for expunction, the clearing of all criminal records and documents pertaining to your arrest and prosecution.
