CALL A DWI ATTORNEY TODAY TO HELP BUILD A STRONG DEFENSE WITH YOUR FELONY DWI WITH CHILD CHARGE
If you or a loved one is facing a DWI with child passenger charge, you need an experienced and highly reviewed DWI attorney to help get the case dropped or reduced to a misdemeanor (to avoid a felony conviction). Unlike many felony offenses, Texas law does not allow for deferred adjudication (deferred probation that ends in a dismissal if successfully completed) on felony DWI with child passenger charge. To avoid a permanent felony conviction, the case has to be dropped (no billed by a Grand Jury), dismissed by the District Attorney’s office, or reduced to a misdemeanor offense (typically by convincing the State to waive the child passenger portion of the Indictment, to allow for a plea to a misdemeanor DWI charge).
In addition, our lawyers help on the outset with the initial driver’s license suspension that comes from the State of Texas for being arrested for a felony DWI with child passenger charge.
Fortunately, there are many ways to challenge or mitigate a DWI arrest, and it’s important that your Fort Worth DWI attorney understands how your case can be challenged. This may include challenging the basis for the initial traffic stop or challenging whether the State can prove intoxication through field sobriety tests or a blood result.
Whether it’s your first DWI or you’re a repeat offender facing felony charges, you need a DWI attorney in Fort Worth who will fight for your future. At Hoeller McLaughlin PLLC, we provide aggressive representation and will do everything we can to get your case dismissed or get your charges reduced.
