DWI IN TEXAS?

YOU'RE FACING TWO CASES

Most people don’t realize that if you have been arrested and charged with a DWI or DUI in the State of Texas you are facing two cases against you. One case is by the Texas Department of Public Safety to suspend your drivers license and the other is the criminal case by the State of Texas. You only have 15 days to act or you will lose your drivers license and your first case. It’s important to work with a team of Houston DWI Lawyers who have the training & experience to protect your rights. We have over 75 years combined experience in DWI Defense with 1,000s of cases won & dismissed.

Many websites claim to be the Best DWI Lawyer or a DWI Specialist but Gary Trichter was the 1st DWI Specialist in Texas. He is one of only four DWI Specialists in the State that have earned this designation from the National College for DUI Defense.

WHAT TYPE OF DWI LAWYER DO YOU NEED?

The First Thing You Need To Know Is That Many lawyers Will Take A DWI Case But Most Attorneys Don’t Focus On Texas DWI Law. Most attorneys are trained in the laws pertaining to a wide variety of legal areas But don’t always focus in one field like DWI Law. Practical experience is crucial for DWI cases. And because of the complexity of these cases, knowledgeable attorneys consider them to be among the most difficult to defend.

You Want A DWI Lawyer that focuses solely on DWI Law and has plenty experience defending these types of cases. A lawyer Who Knows the prosecution, the judges and How To Fight DWI Cases. Not All DWI Lawyers Have The Same Qualifications either. There Are Only Four (4) DWI Specialists In The State Of Texas And This Certification Is only Given By The National College Of DUI Defense Which Is Recognized By The American Bar Association. Trichter & LeGrand Is Home To The 1st DWI Specialist In Texas Gary Trichter

Many websites claim to be the Best DWI Lawyer or a DWI Specialist but Gary Trichter is a true DWI Specialist who earned his designation from the National College for DUI Defense. You Only Have One Chance To Win Your Case So Choose Your Defense Wisely.

PRIOR DWI CONVICTION?

HOW LONG CAN THE STATE USE A PRIOR DWI CONVICTION?

How Long Can The State Use A Prior DWI Conviction? Texas previously allowed convictions to be used within 10 years but the law has changed and now these convictions can basically be used forever. If you have a deferred adjudication probation on a DWI/DUI from other States that might not be usable. If you have a final conviction from another State it is usable in Texas, the same as it would be if you got the conviction here is Texas. Watch the video to learn more…
