DWI in Bastrop Texas Attorney

Having legal representation in court is important. A Bastrop Texas DWI attorney must possess the experience to identify critical aspects and ask the right questions. An accused individual usually lacks the knowledge needed for a proper defense.

Bastrop, like most places, has law enforcement officers looking for impaired drivers. If you are apprehended after consuming alcohol, you will likely be taken to the Bastrop County Jail. However this does not imply guilt. To reduce or dismiss your case, you’ll need to seek the services of an experienced DWI lawyer in Bastrop, Texas. This process may involve an investigator. I have extensive experience in handling such cases, with satisfied clients.

A Texas DWI 1st offense penalty is punishable by a fine up $2,000 for a Class B misdemeanor or $4,000 for a Class A misdemeanor. Texas DWI laws undergo frequent legislative updates, with penalties escalating based on severity and a .15 BAC test result. 

A 1st offense of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) is considered a Class B misdemeanor unless the BAC is .15 or higher. The maximum fine is $2,000 and the license suspension period spans from 90 days to one year. This is separate from the DPS Drivers License ALR hearing related to a test refusal or failure.
