If you have been arrested for suspicion of DWI do not wait – consult a criminal defense attorney today. Our Georgetown lawyers service all of Williamson and Hays Counties and also offices in Austin.
Williamson County lawyers representing Georgetown and Austin residents who are charged for misdemeanor and felony DWI
Driving is considered a privilege. You are agreeing to comply with certain laws when you accept your license from the Texas DMV. One of those laws is that any adult driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC) must be under .08%. Another stipulation you make is that you will comply with a chemical test if you are stopped on suspicion of a DWI. If you do not obey both of these laws then your license will be suspended for a period of time and you will be subject to jail time and substantial fines. However, there are a number of defenses that a qualified criminal defense attorney may be able to use to fight the charges. Texas DWI lawyer Mark Morales handles all matters related to alcohol and drug-related driving charges including:
- Open container
- DWI of a person under the age of 21
- DWI of a CDL holder
- First time DWI offenders
- Multiple DWI offenders
- Intoxication assault
Charges can range from a misdemeanor DWI to a felony DWI. The level of the charge will depend on if this was your first offense and if anyone was injured while you were behind the wheel. DWI convictions lead to jail time, high fines, community service, alcohol awareness courses, a suspended license, and higher insurance rates. If you have been charged with a DWI related crime contact our lawyers. In addition to Georgetown, we also service the surrounding communities of Austin, Bartlett, Cedar Park, Florence, Granger, Hutto, Jarrell, Leander, Liberty Hill, Round Rock, Taylor, Thrall, Weir, all of Hays County, and all of Williamson County.
