Fort Worth DWI Attorney

Strong & Effective Driving While Intoxicated Defense

Whether you are a college student or a business professional and whether this is your first arrest or not, being arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Tarrant County, Texas is an unnerving experience that may have left you reeling and fearful for the future. The Fort Worth criminal defense lawyer at the Law Offices of David Sloane understands what you are facing. Attorney David Sloane is known for his proficiency in this area of criminal defense and is able to offer strong defense to people accused of DWI in the state of Texas.

Renowned Tarrant County DWI Defense Lawyer

With more than 20 years in the legal industry and a background as a former police lieutenant, Attorney Sloane understands these types of cases better than most attorneys can and brings a rare and invaluable level of credibility to his practice. This area of law is highly technical and complex, involving studies in such fields as anatomy, biology, physiology, toxicology, and chemistry. As a member of the National College of DUI Defense - which holds a high standard of education, experience, and skill for all members - Attorney Sloane understands this field and is prepared to offer unusually perceptive advice and effective representation.

It is also important to understand the various legal aspects involved in this field of law, including search and seizure laws, due process, issues with evidence, and much more. There are often complications involved in the tests administered to determine a person's level of intoxication. Attorney Sloane understands these tests and, consequently, the problems that often arise in connection with results. He has been trained in the correct operation of the Intoxilyzer 5000 breath-testing equipment as used by police officers throughout Texas and has even instructed police recruits in the proper administration of field sobriety tests. Because of this in-depth experience, Attorney Sloane is able to quickly recognize problems or evidentiary issues connected with these tests in a DUI case.

How much is too much alcohol?
You could be convicted of DWI in Texas if you are found to be driving with a blood alcohol contact (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher. If you are a commercial driver, the BAC limit is 0.04 percent. If you are under the age of 21, any trace amount of alcohol in your bloodstream - as low as 0.02 percent - is grounds for a Texas DWI charge.

What penalties could I face for a DWI in Tarrant County, Texas?
If convicted of DWI in the state of Texas, you face a minimum of 3 but no more than 180 days in jail for a first offense, in addition to up to $2,000 in fines, and 90 to 365 days of license suspension. If this is your second offense, you could face a minimum of 30 but no more than 365 days in jail, up to $4,000 in fines, a minimum of 180 days but no more than 2 years of license suspension, as well as mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device. If a child under the age of 15 was present in the car at the time of your arrest, the penalties can be increased upon conviction. These consequences increase significantly for conviction of third and subsequent offenses as well.
