You Need an Aggressive Houston DWI Attorney
Even a first driving while intoxicated (DWI) offense can have serious consequences. In Houston, a driver convicted of a first DWI may face:
- Fine up to $2,000
- 3 to 180 days in jail
- License suspension for 1 year
A surcharge of $1,000 per year may also be assessed by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), or $2,000 per year if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was .16 or greater. And if your BAC is greater than a 0.15, the case may be enhanced to a Class A Misdemeanor, which doubles the range of punishment and fines.
Thank you, Mark, for saving my career.
I’m in medical sales, so when I was wrongly accused and my career was on the line, I called the best: Mark Thiessen. Mark came highly referred to me from my friends. After reading his reviews on line and meeting him in his office, I knew I could trust Mark to fight for me. Every time he walks in the court the DAs, Judge and staff all greet him. I was honestly proud that was my lawyer when he came in.Posted by Beau
