Your DWI Defense
Arlington Texas DWI Information
In a DWI case, as in any criminal case, the evidence of the police officer who made the arrest is a key part of the prosecution’s case against you. Jim Ross is a former cop and former DEA Agent. He knows the procedures and rules police officers must adhere to as they investigate and build a DWI case. This firsthand knowledge from both sides of justice gives Jim a unique perspective when defending your rights to improve your outlook in the face of DWI charges.
The biggest decision to make in your DWI defense is whether to take your case to trial or to accept a plea deal. If the evidence against you is weak, it may be in your best interest to go to trial. the Jim Ross Law Group has seasoned trial lawyers who are prepared to go the distance with your case if that is the best solution for you.
On the other hand, if you know you made a mistake and you just want to move on with your life, a plea deal may be the way to go. Having a strong defense team can make the difference in the sentence that you receive. It is in your interest to have an attorney who knows how to present your case quickly and in the best possible light in order to get you a good deal. Jim Ross is an experienced DWI defense attorney who can make sure that you get a fair deal.
Facing DWI Charges? The Stakes are High — Defend Your Rights.
The main thing on your mind right now is probably “What will happen to me if I plead guilty or get convicted at trial?” DWI is a serious charge, with life-changing ramifications upon conviction. If you are under 21, your license will automatically be suspended for one year. If you are over 21, and you have no prior convictions for DWI or other intoxication-related offenses, you may face suspension of your license for up to one year.
If you have two prior convictions for intoxication-related offenses, a misdemeanor DWI charge becomes a felony. A felony conviction carries the possibility of much longer jail time, loss of your right to vote in a public election, loss of your ability to run for or hold public office, or if the DWI is drug-related (as opposed to alcohol-related) you may become temporarily or permanently ineligible for federal student loans.
You should consult with an attorney as soon as possible to discuss the defense of your DWI charge.
