San Antonio DWI Attorney
25 Years of Experience Fighting for the Accused
Texas takes DWI offenses very seriously. You could face harsh consequences designed to punish and prevent you from a repeat arrest. While you may feel you have little chance of defending yourself in the face of the evidence against you, that is not true. You are innocent unless proven guilty and it is your legal right to have your day in court. At Beasley Law Firm, our San Antonio DWI lawyer has 25 years of experience fighting for those facing DWI and other arrests. As a former prosecutor, Attorney Bruce Beasley knows how the other side works and can use that insight and his extensive experience to help you seek the best possible case outcome.
Texas DWI Law
The legal limit for alcohol concentration in your blood (BAC) is .08 percent. This will likely result in a DWI charge. Even if your BAC is less than that, you could still be charged if the arresting officer observes impairment in your driving abilities. This may be done through field sobriety tests or direct observation of intoxication, such as slurred speech, alcohol odor, bloodshot eyes, or other physical indications.
When charged with a first-offense DWI, you face the following penalties:
- A fine of up to $2,000
- Jail time of three to 180 days
- Multiple license suspensions
- Community service
- Substance abuse treatment and education programs
- Administrative sur charges over several years
If your BAC measures .15 percent or higher, the penalties are increased. Penalties also significantly increase on second, third, and subsequent offenses, or, if someone is seriously injured, even if it's a first time offense. Additional penalties may include the installation and maintenance of an ignition interlock device. A DWI conviction will also likely lead to higher auto insurance premiums.
