Austin DWI Lawyer: First DWI Offense

Conviction & Penalties for DWI in TX

you could face serious penalties for a DWI conviction, even if it's your first offense. Operating a motor vehicle while your blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.08% or higher is an illegal action in Austin, Texas and, if you are arrested for DWI, you could face serious penalties.

A first conviction of drinking and driving can result in:

  • 180 days in jail
  • Up to $2,000 in fines
  • Driver's license suspension for up to 1 year

If there is a minor (under the age of 15) in the vehicle at the time of your arrest, then your jail sentence could be increased to 2 years.

Why Retain a DWI Attorney in Austin?

If you have been charged with a first DWI offense, then you need to retain skilled representation in order to combat the accusations made against you. It is important to understand that a lot of evidence may be admitted in your case, such as testimonies, chemical test results, and police statements. There is no evidence submitted in a DWI case, however, that cannot be fought against by a skilled representative. The Law Office of Richard T. Jones is dedicated to fighting any evidence that is brought against you in your case.

You may greatly benefit from his legal assistance as he can work with you to build a strong defense of your case that pursues your goals and desires for a beneficial outcome. Without proper representation, you could be left with highly undesirable circumstances and you could suffer from the penalties for many years. Receiving a drunk driving conviction can result in a denial of commercial driving employment and could get you fired from your current driving job if you are in trucking or delivery services.

Seek the representation of this attorney as soon as possible. Richard Jones and his team treat every case with the seriousness that it deserves, and they are committed to providing personalized attention to their clients. Call (512) 856-4022 for a free consultation!
