The winter months are a time of many celebrations. There are many reasons for residents in Texas and elsewhere to take to the road this time of the year. Whether it is a family gathering, holiday party or a New Years Eve celebration, the roadways see and increase in travelers this time of year. Not only are there more travelers, but there is also a greater concern for people getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol.
In effort to reduce the number of drunk driving crashes, law enforcement takes action to remove drunk drivers from the roadways. But, these efforts are not perfect and could result in some motorists being charged with drunk driving when law enforcement did not properly follow protocol or procedures. At The Sanchez Law Firm, we see this situation far too often, which is why we have nearly two decades helping our clients avoid conviction or serious penalties associated with a DWI.
Whether it is an individual’s first offense or not, a drunk driving charge should be taken seriously. That means initiating a criminal defense against the DWI charge. Our law firm understands the importance of a timely and aggressive defense, as it could help dismiss the charges completely.
We take the time to assess the entire situation, noting if there was a lawful stop, whether errors were made during a field sobriety test or breathe test, if a lawful arrest was made or any other errors occurred or steps missed. Pinpointing errors could help suppress evidence, which could ultimately result in reduced or dismissed charges.

A drunk driving conviction could result in serious fines and driver’s license suspension, effecting one’s ability to get around and even pay for basic needs. Thus, it is important to consider one’s defense options to reduce or even dismiss these allegations.
