When you’re arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) in Houston, it can seem as if the deck is stacked against you, and that the police have a rock-solid case with rock-solid evidence against you. This isn’t always the case. As an experienced criminal defense lawyer who has practiced law in Texas since 1991, I know this for a fact.
A Common Assumption of Guilt
The assumption of guilt is often voiced by clients of ours who took the Breathalyzer test and blew over 0.8, which is above the legal Blood Alcohol Limit. They mistakenly think that pleading out is the best idea. However, they don’t realize that DWI cases can be beat on the basis of the science or on other technical grounds.
DWI Charges Can Be Beat
Even if you didn’t take the Breathalyzer test, but took another type of field sobriety test and failed, all hope is not lost. Houston DWI defense attorney Tad A. Nelson has won a number of cases for our clients with many of those being considered unwinnable by onlookers. We’ve even won in multiple intoxication manslaughter trials.
