Dwi Defense attorney collin evans
DWI is an opinion crime. One police officer who claims he sees red, glassy eyes,
hears slurred speech and smells the odor of alcohol can take you to jail. Someone
who just met you and knows nothing about where you have been, whether you have
allergy problems, what kind of medical issues you have, the way you talk and
whether you drank any alcohol that day, let alone how much, can take away your
freedom. Without an experienced Houston DWI Defense Attorney, you could end up
with more time in jail, having to pay thousands of dollars in fines with your drivers
license suspended and a criminal conviction on your record for the rest of your life
without an attorney that knows how to defend a DWI, DUI or other alcohol related
offense. An arrest, conviction or even dismissal of a DWI can radically change your
life. You could lose your job, miss out on future employment opportunities or get
evicted from your home. At the Law Office of Collin Evans, we understand that your
case creates problems outside the courtroom and work hard to help you solve them.
What isDrivingWhile Intoxicated?
DWI is a crime when operating a motor vehicle in a public place while intoxicated.
Intoxication is not the same as “drunk.” The law defines intoxication as the loss of
the normal use of your physical or mental faculties, or having alcohol concentration
of 0.08 or greater in your breath, blood or urine. A person can be intoxicated from
substances other than alcohol such as a controlled substance, drug, dangerous drug
or a combination of two or more those substances into the body.
Getting pulled-over, arrested, and spending the night in jail for DWI is just the
beginning of a long road. While your case is going on a judge could order you to not
to drive at all, install a breath testing machine in your car or put an alcohol monitor
on your ankle. The Texas Department of Public Safety will use the Administrative
License Revocation hearing to try
