How Can We Help You?

Most people who arrested for DWI are not criminals with an extensive track record. They are everyday people. Our Plano DWI attorney understands that mistakes happen all the time. However, even a first-time DWI carries heavy consequences.

These are the penalties for a first-time DWI offense:

  • Jail sentence for at least 3 days and up to 180 days
  • Up to $2, 000 in fines (unless the driver has a child under the age of 15 in the vehicle)
  • License suspension from 90 days and up to 1 year

Keep in mind as well that Texas operates under the implied consent law. This means that if an officer conducts a lawful arrest and reasonably believes that you were driving while intoxicated, they have the right to ask you to submit a blood or a breath sample. A chemical test will evaluate your body’s blood-alcohol content (BAC) to determine your level of intoxication. You can face penalties for refusing to submit to either the chemical test.
