Lubbock Texas DWI / DUI Attorney Information
Mistakes people make after being arrested for a DWI in
Texas and a few tips on how to avoid them.
1. Not taking the matter seriously. This is
a charge that will follow you for the rest of your life, if you are convicted.
The additional insurance charges alone could cost you thousands of dollars.
2. Not hiring an experienced DWI defense
trial attorney. The
law is complex and you need competent representation. You must raise the right
defenses at the right time or you will lose them. Facts will disappear, memories
fade and witnesses vanish. A winnable case can quickly become a loser.
3. Hiring an attorney based on the amount of
the fee alone. The State of Texas has almost unlimited resources when it comes
to your case. You need to hire an attorney and pay a fee which will allow him to
put time and effort into your case to counter the prosecution. Attorneys must
earn enough in the time they spend on your case in order to keep their doors
open and make a living wage. If you go too low, your attorney will not be able
to put in the time necessary to protect you. Look for a reasonable, predictable
fee, not the lowest.
4. Not complying with driver's license laws.
You could lose your right to drive.
5. Driving after your license has been taken
6. Not taking full advantage of your
7. Taking the prosecutor's first offer. The
first offer is not a bargain, it's just to get rid of your case with the least
amount of work. Very few cases are dismissed or reduced to a non-alcohol charge
at this stage. You do not give the judge an opportunity to rule on
constitutional challenges. You give up your right to raise these issues and make
the State of Texas prove it's case.
8. Failing to appear in Court. The Court
will issue a bench warrant for your arrest and revoke any bond. The next time
you are stopped for a traffic infraction, you will be spending some time in jail
and posting a bond for your future appearances.
9. Talking to anyone but an attorney about
your case. Anything you say to them can be used against you.
10. Thinking that talking to numerous
attorneys will help you handle it on your own. You need to have an attorney go
to Court with you.
