Below are a few frequently asked questions about DWI in Montgomery County. You can read the full DWI FAQ on our website here: DWI FAQ with DWI expert Mark Thiessen.

Do I need a lawyer for a DWI in Texas?

You do not need a lawyer for a DWI in Texas — you only need a lawyer if you want to win. Although it is technically legal to represent yourself in a court of law, successfully defending yourself from criminal charges is nearly impossible without extensive training and experience.

Knowledge, however, is not the only barrier between you and winning your own DWI case — after all, many intelligent, highly-trained attorneys still have trouble winning difficult DWI cases. A successful trial attorney must also have familiarity with prosecutors, judges, and even the law enforcement officers involved in your case. 

Attorneys spend massive amounts of time on your case, time which is often shared across an entire team of people with access to resources and deep knowledge of processes. The bottom line is that you will not be able to manage your case like a team of professional attorneys can. 

How do you win a DWI case in Texas?

There are many methods that an attorney might use to win a DWI case depending on the circumstances. DWI cases can be won using the following methods:

  • Arguing that the blood or breath tests were inaccurate or dubiously procured. Because breath tests are a non-exact science, inaccurate BAC results are quite common in DWI arrests.
  • Arguing that law enforcement officers made an illegal stop in a way that infringed upon your rights. 
  • Arguing that one of any number of police procedures were inaccurately followed, or errors were otherwise made in the case.

No DWI case is open and shut. Whether you think you couldn’t be more guilty or that your innocence is obvious, it will require a skilled attorney demonstrating your innocence in court to actually beat a charge for DWI.
