Avoid Long-Term Consequences With A Serious DWI Attorney

In Texas, charges for even a first offense of driving while intoxicated (DWI) can have grave effects on your life. You could lose your license for months, and depending on the details of your charge, you may even see jail time and face thousands of dollars in fines. Hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney is your best chance at reduced sentencing or even dropped charges.

The Law Office of Ricardo Briones provides DWI, drug violations and other areas of criminal defense representation to clients throughout San Antonio and the surrounding counties. Attorney Briones understands the gravity of these matters, and he knows how to pursue your best possible outcome.

A DWI Is Never A Light Charge – We Can Help

A DWI conviction in Texas can bring an array of penalties. The amount of blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and other details factor into the consequences. While state laws change over time, Texas currently holds these driver’s license suspensions for DWI convictions:

  • First offense – minimum 90 days
  • Second offense – minimum 1 year
  • Third offense – minimum 1 year

The state also may confiscate your vehicle or install an ignition interlock device. Additionally, consequences are more severe if you are arrested for a DWI with a child under 15 years old in your vehicle.

There are ways we can help you fight these charges. For example, we can request inspections of the breathalyzer or analyze police reports to ensure you received fair treatment. Also, if you have a DWI conviction on your record, it is possible to have your record cleared. In addition to defense representation, we also help with expungements.
