First Time DWI Charges in Fort Bend County

Skilled DWI Defense Lawyer

While the penalties for a first time DWI charge are significantly less than for a second or third offense, they are still very serious and incredibly inconvenient. If you’re convicted of driving while intoxicated, the penalties you could face include fines, license suspension, jail time, and more.

If you’ve been arrested for DWI, you should contact an experienced Fort Bend County DWI attorney as soon as possible. Many people think that the penalties will be less if they simply plead guilty, but this is not the case. When you retain Sims Law Firm, we can build a powerful defense to help you keep your license and your freedom.

Hire a skilled DWI attorney who will fight for your best interests. Contact Sims Law Firm today for a free case evaluation.

Consequences of a First Time DWI Conviction

In Texas, DWI is a serious offense and is enforced very aggressively by law enforcement officers. If a police officer believes that you are driving while intoxicated from alcohol or drugs, you may be arrested under suspicion of DWI.

If you’re convicted of DWI, you could face all of the following punishments:

  • Up to 180 days in jail
  • Fines of up to $2,000
  • A 2-year suspension of your driver’s license
  • Enrollment in a DWI education or intervention program
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device
  • Annual driver’s license fees of $2,000 for 3 years

An experienced Sugar Land criminal defense attorney can help reduce or eliminate these penalties. Call Sims Law Firm today at (713) 766-1445 for experienced representation.

Common Defenses Against First Time DWI Charges

It’s important to remember that a DWI arrest in Texas is actually a “suspicion of DWI” arrest. Like any other crime, the burden is on the prosecution to prove that you’re guilty. A skilled defense lawyer will attempt to counter any incriminating evidence presented by the prosecution.

Some of the most common DWI defenses include:

  • Rebutting the results of a Breathalyzer test
  • Refuting the results of a blood BAC test
  • Disputing the legality of the initial arrest

Protect Your Future.

  1. Remember that time is of the essence. Stalling or failing to retain legal counsel makes it more difficult to gather witness statements and favorable evidence while memories are fresh. Additionally, relevant evidence in your case may only be retained by law enforcement for a short amount of time.
