Two DIFFERENT Cases Against You

In the State of Texas, a DWI case consists of two separate charges against you. The first charge is from the Department of Transportation, who will be seeking to suspend or revoke your driver’s license. The second case against you is by the State of Texas, which is the criminal case that holds fines and jail time. Both can be fought in court to try to save you from losing your license and spending valuable time in jail.

Within just 15 days from your DWI charge, your license can be suspended. The State of Texas gives you a chance in this fifteen day timeframe to request a License Revocation Hearing to stop your license from being immediately suspended or revoked. It is important that you take advantage of this time and hire a reputable DWI lawyer as soon as possible to assist you in an attempt to have no interruption with your driving privileges. In Fort Bend Texas, Trichter and LeGrand are here to help you try to avoid any lapse or suspension.

A DWI Charge Can Cost You Your Job, License, and Freedom

Aside from the costly fines that come with a DWI, you also run the risk of losing your license. That can be another added expense you could do without. We tend to take driving privileges for granted until we no longer have those privileges. Most people depend on being able to drive to and from work. If you have your license suspended, it may interfere with your ability to get to work, and the guarantee of reliable transportation. Sometimes ending in job loss. We don’t want that to happen to you.

A DWI goes on your permanent record. There is a way to have it disappear from your record by having it expunged, as if the incident never happened. In that case, you will need a well versed and experienced DWI attorney who is educated in DWI law and knows it inside and out. After beating your case against the State of Texas and the Department of Transportation, you can go up for an expungement hearing, and if granted, your DWI charge will vanish from your record.

What Type Of DWI Lawyer Do You Need?

While most criminal attorneys will take your DWI case, not all have the education or experience on the technicalities of this type of charge. It is important to have a lawyer who knows DWI law specifically inside and out when fighting your case. With over 75 years of collective experience on our legal team at Trichter and LeGrand, we are proud to have Gary Trichter his expertise and Texas DWI specialized training. Gary Trichter has over 40 years of experience fighting all different levels of DWI cases in the state of Texas, as well as the education and certification from the National College of DUI defense. Which is recognized by the American Bar Association. One of only five DWI specialists in the great State of Texas.
