DWI/DUI Defense

Experienced Legal Counsel That Responds Quickly To Eliminate Negative Consequences Of A DWI Charge

Our firm understands that the negative consequences of being charged with a DWI or other misdemeanor crime in Texas can be life changing. If you have been arrested for drunk driving, you face stiff penalties, even as a first-time offender. The State of Texas imposes some of the harshest penalties in the United States for DWI and misdemeanor crimes.

The penalty is far greater than a simple fine. It could cost you your job. Employers run criminal background checks, and often they will not employ someone with a DWI on their record. Without knowledgeable and experienced representation quickly stepping in, the court system could wreck your life. Ghezzi Law Firm defends your rights and will help you eliminate the negative impact of a DWI arrest.

The Penalties For DWI Convictions Are Stiff

Ghezzi Law Firm Fights to Get You the Best Deal

If you are arrested for driving under the influence, even as a first-time offender, you face harsh penalties in Texas. Potential penalties include steep fines, loss of your driver’s license, $3,000 driver’s license reinstatement fee, jail time and probation.

Class A Misdemeanor

Under the Texas Penal Code, a Class A misdemeanor is punishable by a fine of up to $4,000 and/or up to one year in jail.

A Class B misdemeanor is punishable by a fine of up to $2,000 and/or up to 180 days in jail.

Problems As A Result Of A DWI Conviction Have A Severe Lifelong Impact

The obvious consequences are jail time, loss of your driving privileges and severe financial hardship.  A DWI conviction may also impact your vehicle insurance and employment opportunities. Because there is so much at stake, you need legal counsel on your side that has experience and understands both sides of the courtroom to help you through the difficulties and complications caused by your arrest.

Take Action If You Have Been Arrested For A DWI

If you are stopped and arrested for DWI, you should act quickly and retain experienced counsel due to the potentially serious implications of the arrest on your record.  Your driver’s license is automatically suspended for at least 90 days upon your arrest. You only have 15 days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing before the Texas Department of Public Safety to challenge the suspension of your driver’s license.  Ghezzi Law Firm assists you in obtaining an occupational license to drive if your license suspension cannot be reversed.

Our firm helps you try to clean up your record once you have completed probation or the statute of limitations has expired on the offense for which you were arrested and no charges have been filed.  We assist you in expunging certain offenses and seeking an order of nondisclosure for many others. We are here to help you put your life back on track following your arrest. Ghezzi Law Firm fights for you to reduce the personal and financial impact of a DWI arrest.
