If you were recently pulled over by a law enforcement official in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, and charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), you may be subjected to certain penalties. These penalties often encompass State Surcharges, incarceration, and even DL suspension. While DWI (often times referred to as drunk driving) is serious and one of the worst convictions you can have on your Texas Driving Record, it may be in your best interest to seek legal representation from the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno. Our law firm has been practicing Texas traffic law for over 20 years, and has previously defended clients facing DWI charges, as well as Driving Under the Influence (DUI), in Denton, Dallas, Fort Worth, Plano and other cities in Dallas-Fort Worth area. We may be hired to plead your case for the best possible deal, such as deferred adjudication, or to defend against your DWI conviction at trial. If you would like additional information on Dallas-Fort Worth DUI or DWI, please fill out our DWI Contact Form.
Have you been convicted of Driving While Intoxicated in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex? In the case that you refuse to be administered a field sobriety test by a police officer who suspects you of DWI, or if you fail a breath test given to you, Administrative License Revocation (ALR) may be in order for you. ALR is a form of DL suspension that Jack Byno & Associates may be hired to dispute in court. Has your driver's license already been suspended as a result of a drunk driving charge? Our law firm may be able to seek you a temporary, Occupational Driver's License (ODL), also called an Essential Need License.
If this is your first Dallas-Fort Worth DWI conviction, be aware that your driver's license may not necessarily be suspended. However, if it is not your first conviction, and you have previously been convicted of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) in DFW, you could penalized with a driver's license suspension lasting up to two years. Even so, our law firm may still be able to assist you by challenging your DL suspension in the Justice Court. If you would like more information on DL suspension, please complete our DL Suspension Contact Form.
Motorists charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex may be arrested and obliged to pay annual State Surcharges of up to $1,000. Your car insurance premiums may also be increased. Our law firm realizes that penalties for DWI are severe, and we are therefore prepared to defend against DWI convictions on behalf of our clients. DUI is also a serious traffic offense, but is not necessarily associated with the same penalties that accompany DWI. DUI can occur when drivers choose to get behind the wheel with incapacitating amounts of alcohol in their system, or when underage drivers choose to drink and drive. If you have been charged with DWI or DUI in Dallas-Fort Worth, be advised that certain factors will be considered by the Justice of the Peace Court during the penalty phase of your case. Factors considered may include whether you caused a car accident while driving drunk, whether or not you had open containers in your vehicle at the time of your DWI or DUI, and whether anyone died as a result of your decision to drink and drive.
