10 Mistakes People Make after being Arrested for a DWI in Texas

September 2nd, 2010 by Kyle Lowe

If you have been arrested for a DWI in Austin or the surrounding cities, here are ten commonly made mistakes you need to avoid according to Biederman and Burleson, P.L.L.C.;

  1. Not taking the matter seriously.  This is a charge that can follow you for the rest of your life if you are convicted.  The additional cost of auto insurance alone could cost you thousands of dollars.
  2. Not hiring an experienced DWI attorney.  The law is extremely complex and you need competent representation.  You must raise the right defenses at the right time or you will lose them.  Facts will disappear, memories fade and witnesses vanish.  A winnable case can quickly become a loser.
  3. Hiring a DWI attorney based on the amount of the fee alone.  The State of Texas has almost unlimited resources when it comes to your case.  You need to hire an experienced DWI attorney and pay a fee which will allow him to put time and effort into your case to counter the prosecution.
  4. Not complying with the Driver’s License law.  You could lose your right to drive.
  5. Driving after your license has been taken away.
  6. Not taking full advantage of your constitutional rights.
  7. Taking the prosecutor’s first offer.  The first offer is not a bargain; its just to get rid of your case with the least amount of work.  Very few cases are dismissed or reduced to a non-alcohol charge at this stage.  You do not give the judge an opportunity to rule on constitutional challenges.  You give up your right to raise these issues and make the State prove it’s case.
  8. Failing to appear in Court.  The Court will issue a bench warrant for your arrest and revoke any bond.  The next time you are stopped for a traffic infraction, you will be spending some time in jail and posting a bond for your future appearances.
  9. Talking to anyone but an experienced DWI attorney about your case.  Anything you say to anyone else can be used against you.
  10. Thinking that talking to a numerous amount of attorneys will help you handle your case yourself.  You need to hire a DWI lawyer and have him handle your case in the courtroom.

Travis County approves drawing DWI suspects’ blood at jail

May 27th, 2010 by Kyle Lowe

According to an article in the Austin American Statesman, blood could soon be drawn at Central Booking at the Travis County Jail after county commissioners voted 4-0 to approve changes to an agreement between Travis County and the City of Austin. The Austin City Council is expected to consider the changes later this month. If the changes are accepted, Austin police officials will solicit bids for the phlebotomy services with a potential June start date for the new protocol. A law went into effect last year that expanded the circumstances in which blood draws or breath tests from DWI suspects would be required. Instances where the victims are injured and transported for medical care and where there is a child present in the vehicle of the suspect are now cause for mandatory blood draws and/or breath tests. Given these new guidelines, The Travis County Sheriff’s Office and Austin Police Department estimate that an additional 300-400 blood draws will be required on top of the 400-500 that occur each year. An experienced DWI attorney is crucial if you have been charged with drunk driving in Austin, or the surrounding counties. Take your fear out of the process by contacting Austin based DWI attorney, Kyle Lowe at (512) 750-5693.

A first Austin DWI offense can include the following penalties:

And a third Austin DWI offense can result in these penalties:

  • Two to 10 years in the state penitentiary
