If You Do Not Protect Your License Quickly, It Is Gone…
In Texas, driving or operating while under the influence of alcohol is illegal and is likely to result in DWI or DUI charges depending on the amount of alcohol that law enforcement determines was in your system at the time of the alleged incident.
In most cases, Texas law enforcement personnel make this determination at the scene when they pull you over. If they determine that your behavior and/or driving is impaired, they may decide to arrest you and book you in jail. What that means for your defense is that the state’s case hinges on the steps the arresting officer took and the observations they made at this time. If an attorney can demonstrate on your behalf in a court of law that the officer did not follow proper procedure, the case against you could be thrown out entirely.

More is on the line than just your license
Depending on chosen career or vocation, getting a DWI or DUI can be devastating. Add to this the expensive costs of the fines, court appearances, and any restitution and the consequences of a conviction can be devastating. Texas takes a zero-tolerance policy on drunk driving, so even if you have the charges dropped but do not appeal your license suspension, you may not be able to drive again for months, if not years, depending on your prior driving or criminal history.
