Driving while intoxicated (DWI, also known as Driving under the Influence or DUI) is a serious charge in Texas that can come with many problems for anyone that is convicted long after the fines, court costs or their time has been served.
The Martinez Law Firm, one of Texas’ most highly rated defense firms offers defense against DWI charges. Fighting charges against the prosecution can be a challenging task without adequate representation from a qualified attorney. This is particularly important because police officers routinely make an arrest because of a failure of field sobriety tests. In reality, these same officers do not know how to correctly administer the field sobriety test. The field sobriety tests give the officer probable to make an arrest, but it is up to the lawyer to illustrate to the prosecutor the mistakes made by the officer that leads to a dismissal of the charges.
The Martinez Law Firm focuses its efforts on providing DWI defense even in the most challenging situations. While many first-time DWI charges are fairly straightforward, circumstances can make these cases much more complex and dangerous for the defendant than normal. Where a minor charge might include only probation, incidents such as intoxication manslaughter and driving with a child passenger while intoxicated fall under the category of felony DWIs and carry much harsher punishments for those accused of these charges.
Working as a Houston DWI attorney has helped provide Herman Martinez and his staff with the experience necessary to represent clients in many different situations throughout their DWI experience. This includes not only a variety of court hearings, and trial but support throughout the entire case.
Administrative License Revocation hearings, or ALRs, are hearings where The Martinez Law Firm can prevent a driver’s license from being suspended. Being successful in these hearings will deny the Government from suspending a license even though in most arrests a license is confiscated. These hearings do not function like a traditional court and being successful may be a difficult task, which makes a solid prepared and persuasive defense a critical element of achieving the intended result.
Houston DWI lawyer Herman Martinez also works to provide clients with as much information about their options as possible. Depending on the circumstances of the case, it is sometimes difficult or impossible to completely wipe away all of the charges. However, a skilled representation and an understanding of the various options available will often help in negotiating penalties and fees down to a more manageable level. This can make all the difference between a major felony conviction and a misdemeanor with significantly reduced effects on a client’s life.
