Being charged with DWI or DUI is a traumatic and anxiety-inducing situation. The repercussions affect your reputation, dignity, career, and can cause you serious stress.

No matter how serious you think your offense is, Attorney Shannon Edwards will be at your side every step of the way.

It is critical that you act quickly! If you or one of your attorneys do not ask for an Administrative Licensing hearing within fifteen days of the arrest, and you do not have a Texas driver’s license, then the license will be made invalid in the state of issue. If an Administrative Licensing Revocation Program (ALR) hearing is not requested or this hearing is lost, on a first DWI or DUI charge, a suspension of three months will be placed on your license. If you have refused the requests of the police for sobriety tests your license will be suspended for at least 6 months. It is of crucial importance that the ALR is contacted within fifteen days of the arrest by either an attorney or the defendant. If this is not processed in the correct manner a suspension will come into effect 40 days after the arrest.

The first thing we’ll do is set up a free consultation with you. During the consultation, we will look at all of the facts surrounding your case. Since all cases, even “typical” DWI cases, are different, we will look at how to approach your case specifically. We will take the time to explain everything to you as well, so you understand everything that’s happening with your case.

The main goal for our attorneys is to get a complete dismissal of your DWI charges, however if this is not possible our lawyers will focus on reducing the DWI charges and decreasing both the financial and criminal penalties of your arrest. In addition, our lawyers can represent you at the ALR hearing and increase your chances of keeping your license. While our attorneys cannot guarantee your license will not be suspended, we can guarantee that if you do not challenge your license suspension there is 100% chance you will lose your license.

We want to make things as simple as possible for you in this difficult time. The free consultation should help to put your mind at ease. A DWI is a serious offense that, if not handled properly, can have lasting effects.

We are here and ready to help, so contact us immediately to set up your consultation. Remember, the consultation will not cost you a thing, so don’t delay.
