What constitutes a DWI in Dallas?

In Texas, driving while intoxicated (DWI) means drunk driving. According to the state, you are drunk when your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.08% or higher. Anyone under the age of 21 is deemed to be driving under the influence if there is any detectable amount of alcohol in their blood.

If you have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, Dallas DWI lawyer can advise you as to your options and, if needed, defend you in court.

What are the penalties for a DWI conviction in Dallas?

If you fail a breath and/or blood test, your driver’s license may be suspended for 90 days. If you refuse to provide a breath and/or blood test, your driver’s license might be suspended for 180 days.

A DWI conviction in Dallas can have a variety of consequences. A judge may sentence you to one or more of the following depending on the specific circumstances of your case: fines of up to $2,000; jail time of up to 180 days; and/or license suspension of up to one year.

A first conviction DWI is considered Class B Misdemeanor can carry jail time in the County jail for not less than 72 hours or more than 180 days; fine of up to $2,000; and community service between 24 and 100 hours. A second conviction DWI is considered a Class A Misdemeanor can carry jail time in the County jail for not less than 30 days or more than 365 days; a fine up of $4,000; and community service. A third conviction DWI is considered a third-degree felony can carry jail time between two and ten years; and a fine of up to $10,000.

Being convicted of an alcohol offense can negatively impact many aspects of your life such as your employment, relationships and your reputation. This is why having a Dallas DWI lawyer on your side can make all the difference in your case.

Arrested or charged with a DUI or DWI?

Driving under the influence (DUI) means operating a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol or drugs that have impaired a person's mental or motor skills. In most states, a person will be considered "impaired" if they exhibit objective signs of intoxication, or if they have a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher. Many states also have zero tolerance laws for drivers under 21, where any non-zero BAC level constitutes an offense. Most states also hold commercial drivers, such as truck drivers, to a more rigorous standard.

Law enforcement officers use a variety of tests, such as field sobriety tests and breathalyzers, to determine whether a driver is impaired by alcohol. In some jurisdictions, you have a right to refuse some of these tests, but in other jurisdictions you may be required to submit to them. It is important to know the law in your particular state, and to consult a DUI attorney if you are facing charges.

DUI lawyers are criminal defense attorneys focused on representing clients facing DUI/DWI/OWI charges. Each state has different DUI laws. An experienced DUI lawyer will be able to evaluate the case against you and present your options on how to best limit the impact of the charges against you. DUI lawyers also handle related cases such as driver's license reinstatement and DUI record expungement.


Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC): The percentage of alcohol in a person's blood.

Field Sobriety Test: Any one of several roadside tests that can be used to determine whether a driver is impaired.
