Georgetown DWI Defense Lawyer
Texas leads the nation in drunk driving crashes and fatalities. As a result, one of the most prosecuted crimes in Texas is DWI (Driving While Intoxicated, also referred to as DUI or driving under the influence). The Lone Star State has some of the nation's harshest DWI laws. Men, women, and youth under 21 can find themselves facing a long list of severe penalties, even for a first time offense. Among other things, this can include jail sentences, expensive fines, driver's license suspension, and substance abuse counseling.
Any one of the penalties associated with a DWI arrest can spell trouble for your life. The conviction itself can even come with an unfortunate social stigma. However, it is possible to avoid such a fate. With the assistance of a Georgetown DWI attorney, you can combat these charges and get your life on track after a DUI arrest.
Michael J. Price understands the techniques used by the prosecution in DWI cases as well as the scientific evidence that is often the foundation of the case against you. Unlike what crime scene investigation shows typically portray, scientific evidence is not always perfect. You must consider the circumstances that led to the evidence being created and the process in which the evidence was investigated. Even in cases where breathalyzer tests showed a blood alcohol level above the legal limit, medical conditions, interference of other technology, and the simple act of burping can cause errors in results.
Once you have been arrested for DWI in Texas the clock immediately begins ticking against you and the prosecution begins to build its case. Don't wait until the last minute to retain defense lawyer, whether you are facing a first DWI in Williamson County or Second DUI in Bell County. Remember,you only have 15 days after arrest to dispute your driver's license suspension. In both the criminal and administrative aspects of your case, a strong early defense can also be highly beneficial. Contact Michael J. Price to discuss your legal options in detail during a free consultation.
Dedicated Legal Protection, Every Step of the Way
A strong defense begins well before you ever set foot in the courtroom. It is important to contact a defense attorney in Georgetown as soon after arrest as possible.

This is why the Law Office of Michael J. Price will work with you from the very beginning.
Pay close attention to the Miranda Rights that are read to you during arrest. Not only do you have the right to remain silent, which is helpful in avoiding the above scenario, you also have the right to have an attorney present during questioning.
