Warrant Now Required in DWI Blood Draws

Highly recommend! Colin thank you so much for your dedication. Thank you for actually wanting to sincerely help and give us the best outcome we can get. You are by far one of the best. You helped my bf reschedule a court date after it was missed and was able to give him the same plea deal. Thank you again Colin.

Absolutely wonderful! Collin was fantastic. He really fought for me and I am very happy with the outcome of my case. He really fought for my case to have a positive outcome and was supportive, easy to get ahold of when needed and walked me through everything. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone!!

I would highly recommend Hoeller McLaughlin. They helped my husband on a probation violation case and did an excellent job. Dustin Trammel was our attorney and he communicated with us and was supportive and helpful throughout the process. Very good legal service and would recommend this firm.

Colin by far has been one of the BEST attorneys in Ft. Worth. His dedication and attentiveness really shows not only in court but with the client and family. Great communication, easy web portal and friendly staff. 5 stars are NOT enough. Thank you Colin

I can not say enough about how grateful I am that Dustin Trammel was my attorney! Having no experience with court proceedings, Dustin explained everything and stayed in touch with me the entire time. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney! Very highly recommend!!

The Court of Criminal Appeals ruled 5-4 today that police officers must now obtain a search warrant to obtain your blood in all types of DWI investigations.  This is a major change to DWI law in the State of Texas and a nice step by Texas courts in protecting your constitutional rights.  Prior to this ruling, police agencies were relying on mandatory blood draws in all felony DWI investigations and they could get your blood without a Judge signing a search warrant.

State Now Requiring a Search Warrant for DWI Blood Draw

What does this mean for you? If you get pulled over for DWI in Fort Worth, Tarrant County, or in a surrounding area, then as long as you do NOT consent to a blood draw, then the officer must obtain a search warrant and it must be reviewed and signed by a Judge for that officer to be able to get your blood.  This will allow your Fort Worth DWI lawyer the ability to review the warrant and make sure it complies with Chapter 18 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.  If it doesn’t comply, then the blood results can be thrown out and the State cannot use it against you at your trial.
