When you have been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, you can feel the weight of the criminal justice system pressing down on you. The police can be intimidating, the prosecution can be aggressive and the penalties you face can be severe. You may feel pressured to make a plea you don’t want to make, and may not have to make!

At times like these, it’s important to have an experienced DUI/DWI defense attorney on your side. Some attorneys will tell you to just take the plea deal the prosecution offers you so that you can go on with your life, but that isn’t always the best choice. Also, a plea is much cheaper but, money is replaceable…your criminal history record is not! Further, there are many long-lasting, adverse consequences to a DWI/DUI conviction. A skilled DWI defense attorney in Houston can explain the process to you, give you candid advice and help you fight for your future.
