Those who are charged with a Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) in Texas often believe that they're completely at the mercy of the legal justice system. For this reason, many fail to seek quality legal representation, thinking that the outcome will be the same no matter what they do. However, although the consequences of a DWI conviction are very stiff in the state of Texas, simply being charged is not the same thing as an actual conviction, and those who fail to seek good legal counsel often sell themselves short.
The services of an attorney with significant experience navigating this particular legal minefield makes the situation more manageable on a personal level for most people. Here's why you should take your case to the best in the business:
Law Enforcement Officers Make Mistakes
Law enforcement officers in Texas are required to follow strict protocol when conducting an arrest. Failure on their part to do so may have advantageous results for those charged with a DWI or other offenses, but without an attorney with serious knowledge of these procedures, little chance exists of getting the charges reduced or dismissed due to officer error.
Experienced Attorneys Knows the Necessary Ropes
It's common for those charged with DWIs in Texas to believe that their only option is to go to court, enter a guilty plea, and take whatever the court chooses to dish out. Often, however, it's just not that cut and dry, which is why it's important to have a skilled, professional DWI lawyer go over your case thoroughly with a fine-toothed comb to seek out possible snags for the prosecution. Also, an attorney with experience in this area may be able to negotiate on your behalf with the prosecuting attorney for a more favorable outcome.
