North Texas Advocates Defend Against Drunk Driving Charges

Accomplished Denton lawyers challenge DWI and DUIA allegations

Once you’ve been arrested in connection with a drunk driving charge, you face severe jail time and other sanctions, even if you’ve never been in legal trouble before. No matter what your intoxication test results showed, skillful legal representation can help you protect your rights and minimize any punishment. At Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant, LLP, our North Texas defense attorneys assist accused motorists in Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUIA) cases. We will thoroughly review the circumstances to identify any improprieties that occurred during the law enforcement process and mount the strongest possible defense on your behalf.

Attorneys in Denton, Flower Mound, Gainesville and Celina advise motorists

Texas has two types of drunk driving charges. All motorists face a DWI charge if their blood-alcohol concentration is .08 percent or higher. For drivers under the age of 21, no amount of intoxication is permitted. Any blood-alcohol reading above zero can result in a DUIA charge. However, even if you or a loved one has exceeded a legal limit, our Texas criminal defense lawyers can often identify problems that prejudiced the case, such as:

  • Improper stop — A reasonable suspicion must exist for a police officer to order a drunk driving stop. Our firm evaluates what factors were known at the time to see if the stop can be challenged.
  • Unjustified arrest and seizure — If you were detained without probable cause or had evidence seized improperly, we’ll seek justice on your behalf.
  • Tainted test — Many things can alter a breathalyzer or blood test reading and give a tainted result. Whether the problem stems from poor handling, something you ate or medication you’ve been taking, our accomplished advocates will press for the exclusion of faulty evidence.

With more than 30 years of serving Texans from offices in Denton, Flower Mound, Gainesville and Celina, we have the experience and local knowledge to assert your rights at every stage of your legal proceeding.

Dedicated firm works to minimize sentences and other penalties

Even a first DWI conviction brings a minimum of three days in jail and other types of punishment, including a fine and license suspension. Those with multiple offenses and motorists who were involved in accidents face the potential of much stiffer penalties. With these consequences, it’s important to secure qualified legal counsel before you surrender your rights. We seek dismissals and acquittals in court and also work with prosecutors to have charges reduced when appropriate. In every instance, we work toward a resolution that minimizes the effects on you and your family.
