DWI Attorney

In Texas, most DWI arrests begin with a traffic stop based on a police officer’s reasonable suspicion that something is wrong. If you were pulled over, the officer should have had a good reason to do so. He or she should have suspected that you were driving while intoxicated because of the way you operated your vehicle. He or she also may have believed that you were violating some other law by speeding, driving with a headlight or taillight out or by failing to stop completely at a stop sign. It is against the law for the police to pull you over for no reason at all.

As DWI attorneys at the Jim Ross Law Group, P.C., in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, we take a thorough look at the DWI cases we handle. We begin at the beginning and consider every aspect. Did the police officer have a reasonable suspicion that you were drinking? Were the proper field sobriety tests given in the correct way? Did he or she have probable cause to arrest you for DWI? Was the Breathalyzer accurate?

If these things were done incorrectly, it could mean that police officers overstepped their bounds. It could also mean that the evidence collected cannot be used against you in court. As experienced defense attorneys, we know what to look for and we do everything possible to protect your rights and your freedom.
