– Background
In Texas, a person commits the offense of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) if the person operates a motor vehicle in a public place while intoxicated. A person is considered intoxicated if they have lost the normal use of their mental or physical faculties because of the introduction of alcohol or some other substance into their body or they have an alcohol concentration of .08 or higher.

First Steps

In Texas, the defense of a DWI is broken down into two parts. The first step of defending a DWI involves challenging the suspension of your driver’s license. The second step is defending the criminal prosecution of the DWI.

You only have 15 days from the date of your arrest to challenge the suspension of your license. Therefore, retaining an experienced attorney right away is important. At the Law Office of Ira Z.
