How Our Law Firm in Southlake, and Trophy Club Can Help With DWI Charges

A conviction for DWI can have long lasting effect over your life. Possible jail time and fines, loss of job opportunities and increased car insurance and driver license costs are just a few of the consequences of a DWI conviction. If you find yourself being charged with a DWI it is important you hire an attorney to defend your rights and freedom!

At Setzer Law Firm, PLLC, Texas, we use years of experience to help people accused of drunk driving protect their rights and their futures. We use keen attention to detail to look at every aspect of a case. We examine all the evidence against you, as well as the procedural steps followed by police and prosecutors.

This thorough approach allows us to use all the facts to formulate a defense tailored to your case, and take a course of action that will best benefit you.

For example, many DWI cases involve ambiguities. The law states that the legal limit is a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08. But many issues involving BAC readings can arise during investigations:

  • The machine used to calculate your BAC may be inaccurate or may have been operated incorrectly.
  • Additionally, certain medical conditions can affect the way a body processes alcohol, meaning the BAC reading may not be accurate in relation to your actual intoxication level.
  • Did the police follow proper procedure?
    Were you legally pulled over?
  • Did the police officer administer the field sobriety test correctly?
  • Were your rights violated?

If we identify these issues in a case, we can use them to negotiate with prosecutors and take matters to trial, if necessary. Our clients experience peace of mind because they know we sought the best possible outcome for them.

Did You Refuse To Take A Breath Test?

When you gained the privilege of driving and received your driver’s license, you gave your implied consent to submit to an officer’s request for a breath test. So, if you refuse to take a test after an officer pulls you over for suspicion of drunk driving, you will face automatic license suspension. But do not lose hope. You may yet be able to get your license and driving privileges reinstated, but you must act quickly.
