A common issue in the State of Texas, especially in Austin and San Marcos, is the arrest of persons under the age of 21 for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or Driving Under the Influence (DUI). The consequences for a person under 21 convicted of a DWI or DUI can be extremely devastating. It can limit certain employment opportunities and professional associations.

The State of Texas and federal government are aggressively prosecuting individuals trying to clear our roads of drunk drivers. If you have a prior DWI or DUI conviction on your record and you are arrested for a second, third, fourth, or subsequent DWI/DUI, the punishments are greatly enhanced and will be harsh. With a previous DWI or DUI conviction it can feel like there’s no chance to fight a new DWI charge. We can help, even after you've been arrested.
About half of the people arrested for DWI refuse to consent to breath or blood samples. The Austin police department can use search warrants to obtain blood samples as a way of combating these refusals. If this has happened to you, don't lose hope. It is extremely difficult to prove a DWI or DUI charge based solely on the analysis of these blood samples, and the prosecution cannot use the refusal as evidence of guilt. We agressively fight No Refusal DWI Charges!

Drivers who receive a conviction of DWI or a DWI related offense are required to pay an annual surcharge for three years from the date of conviction. These surcharges are cumulative and are automatically assessed for DWI and DWI related convictions. Failure to pay these surcharges results in a default and a suspension of your driver's license. DWI charges can be expensive, even years after the fact. The best thing you can do is hire an Austin DWI attorney to help minimize your damages.
When you first get pulled over, the way you respond to the officer's questions determine how things will go from there. You have the right to not answer any questions, but watch out, if you seem too unresponsive it won't look good.
Field Sobriety Tests are designed to make you fail. Most sober people cannot pass a field sobriety test. Although refusing to do them does result in the automatic suspension of your license, it sometimes is the best move.
If an officer suspects you of a DWI, they will most likely ask you to take a breath test. These tests are often unreliable. If you've had anything to drink, it is probably worth refusing to blow. This cannot be used as evidence against you.
The less evidence against you that the state has, the higher your chances of avoiding conviction are. Be respectful, but also be smart, and hire an experienced DWI attorney in the event that you get charged with a DWI.
