Defending your DWI Charge
Just because you are charged with a DWI does not mean you will be found guilty. While defending a DWI charge yourself can be complicated, we know exactly how to fight a DWI and get you the best possible outcome. Defending your DWI starts with poking holes in the prosecution’s case and targeting the arresting officer’s report and the blood and/or breathalyzer samples that were taken. What you don’t know is that the blood and breathalyzer tests can be contested. Breathalyzer test reports can be thrown out for a variety of circumstances. Breathalyzer tests can be thrown out due to defects in the equipment, failure to maintain the equipment according to state regulations, and even for errors in how the breathalyzer test is administered. As for blood test results, we can contest how the blood was collected, the laboratory procedures, and the chain of custody of the blood test. The officer’s arrest can even be contested. According to Texas law, you cannot be pulled over for a DWI unless there is reasonable suspicion. If you are driving without disobeying any laws or regulations and there was no reasonable suspicion for you to be pulled over, the arrest can be thrown out.
