Collin County DWI Lawyer

Collin County Drunk Driving Defense Lawyer

DWI Attorney Serving the Collin County Area

Being charged with a DWI can come as a shock. So can the real impact of a DWI conviction. One of the first things that is likely to happen is that your driving privileges will be suspended - even before you have had a chance to defend yourself in court. From there, the consequences only escalate. Both misdemeanor and felony DWI defendants face jail time - the difference is how much. The penalties also get worse with each DWI, so if this is not your first, it is especially important to take prompt action. If you have been charged with driving while intoxicated, it is in your best interest to secure legal counsel as quickly as possible to give yourself the best odds of a positive outcome.

Law Offices of Biederman & Burleson P.L.L.C. is skilled in securing the best possible outcomes for our DWI clients. We have the years of experience needed to take on even the most challenging DWI cases. There are a number of DWI defenses we routinely employ, from casting doubt on the results of a chemical test to having felony charges reduced to misdemeanors through plea bargaining.

Collin County Defense Attorney for Misdemeanor and Felony DWI

A simple DWI - that is, one without circumstances that make the offense more serious - is a misdemeanor in Texas. While a misdemeanor is punishable by up to a year in jail, a felony can carry between one year and life. The four main reasons that a DWI may be charged as a felony are:

  • Repeat offenses - A first-time DWI or a second DWI are generally misdemeanors, while a third or subsequent DWI is automatically considered a felony.
  • Child endangerment - If you were carrying a passenger age 15 years old or younger, a DWI can be charged as a felony, even if it is your first DWI arrest.
  • Injury - If you allegedly caused an accident, and another person, including one of your passengers, was injured, you could be charged with intoxication assault.
  • Fatality - If any fatality stemmed from an accident you allegedly caused, you could be charged with intoxication manslaughter.

Whether you are facing a misdemeanor or a felony, it is important to take the situation seriously and contact an attorney as soon as you can.

Lawyer for Drug DWI Cases in Collin County

The level of alcohol in a person's body is fairly easily measured, and the longtime standard has been that anyone with a BAC over 0.08 percent is intoxicated. When a person is accused of driving under the influence of a substance other than alcohol, the case is likely to be much less clear-cut.

An increasing number of Texans are arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of substances like marijuana and narcotic pain medications - including a person's own prescriptions. Our attorneys are knowledgeable in the growing field of law surrounding drug DWIs, and we can provide you with effective legal representation in these situations.

Field Sobriety and Chemical Testing Lawyers in Plano

Many people believe that chemical testing is foolproof and that field sobriety test results are beyond question. However, this is not the case. Both field sobriety testing and chemical testing are only as reliable as the police officers who perform them. Even if you were given these tests and were told that you failed them, there is still hope that one or both of these tests can be invalidated.

Anything from inclement weather during field testing to a radio in the room during a breathalyzer test can mean that your results are inaccurate and may not be admitted in court. Our attorneys carefully review all testing done in order to ensure that unfair and inaccurate test results are not used against you.
