Denton DWI Defense Attorney
You Only Have 15 Days To Protect Your Drivers License after A DWI/DUI Arrest
If you have recently been arrested or charged with driving under the influence (DWI/DUI) in Denton, Cooke, or Wise County Texas, you want an experienced and aggressive attorney to handle your case. A conviction on a Driving White Intoxicated charge can have significant impacts, including the loss of your Drivers License, fines and possibly jail time.
In Denton County and surrounding North Texas counties, driving after consuming alcohol is not an illegal offense, but depending on how much you drink, it can be. DUI/DWI arrests are based on the amount of alcohol you have consumed and the level of impairment you demonstrate to the police officer. So much of a DUI/DWI case rides on whether the arresting officer properly performed his or her job. This can mean the difference between a conviction and a dismissal.

A Hearing Regarding Your Driver’s License Must Be Requested Within 15 Days of Arrest
The zero-tolerance law adopted by the State of Texas allows law-enforcement officers to be highly vigilant on cracking down on underage drinking. The law dictates that anyone under the age of 21 can be charged with DUI if they are in possession of or intoxicated by alcohol. This means that if there is even a minute trace of alcohol in your system, you will most likely be arrested and charged with Driving Under the Influence. The arresting officer also has the choice to escalate your case to a DWI if he or she forms the opinion that you are intoxicated or driving under the influence.
