Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
DWI charges can be surprisingly serious. Many people are surprised to find out they can be charged with a DWI while operating a motorized vehicle of any kind. This includes four-wheelers, motorcycles, golf carts, and boats. These charges include fines, imprisonment and frequently a loss of your license. It can also raise the cost of your insurance significantly, result in your vehicle being impounded and include mandatory probation and alcohol/drug safety classes or treatment. There is also the risk of imprisonment. These charges are not to be taken lightly. Contact a great DWI lawyer. Contact David P Ward!

No attorney can guarantee success, but finding one who is experienced and knowledgeable is crucial to giving you your best chance at a successful defense.
If you are charged with a DWI, it is suggested that you consult with a good DWI attorney. This by no means condones drinking and driving, but the severity of a DWI charge, even a first offense, is such that legal representation is of the utmost importance.
Breath or Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is the system of measure used to determine how much alcohol is in your bloodstream. The blood alcohol limit in Texas is 0.08. If you are arrested for suspicion of DWI and you are suspected of also being under the influence of drugs, the officer may request that you undergo a blood test to determine the presence of drugs in your bloodstream. If you refuse to allow your blood to be taken, many jurisdictions will request a search warrant for your blood. If a search warrant is issued, you may not refuse the taking of your blood.
