In Texas, the penalties for drunk driving are severe. Depending on the details of your arrest, you could face steep fines, a license suspension, and jail time. Furthermore, you may be charged with a misdemeanor or felony crime. And certain behaviors can increase the penalties you face. For example, if you are stopped for driving while intoxicated (DWI) and have a child in the car, the charges against you may be enhanced. Regardless of the details of your case, however, you can significantly increase your odds of a positive outcome by consulting with an experienced lawyer.
