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.

Austin DWI Update: APD’s ‘No Refusal’ Policy

February 4th, 2009 by Kyle Lowe

While football fans were done watching the big game and out celebrating — or not, depending on who they were rooting for — the Steelers’ win on Sunday night, Austin Police Department officers were watching for drunk drivers.

From 9pm on Sunday until Monday at 5am, APD’s “No Refusal” policy made it so that drivers could not give “no” for an answer when they were pulled over for a suspected DWI in Austin. This meant, essentially, that if a driver said “no” to a breathalyzer test, Austin police officers would get a warrant for their blood.

Austin DWI blood draws are controversial: many are firmly against them, while others believe they’re a necessary step to keep drunk drivers off Austin streets. Plus, in court Austin DWI blood draws help prove whether a driver was intoxicated.

This isn’t the first time the Austin Police Department has instituted the “No Refusal” policy/Austin DWI blood draws. They’ve done it two times previously.

If you’re pulled over for an Austin DWI, you simply must know your rights.  Provide the Austin DWI officer with your driver’s license and proof of insurance, and be sure not to give any incriminating information. If the officer asks you any incriminating questions, be polite but firm in saying that you respectfully decline to answer any questions until you consult with your Austin DWI attorney, Kyle Lowe.

Austin DWI offenses are very serious, and they can be on your driving record for the rest of your life. If you have an Austin DWI offense, it’s imperative that you hire an experienced, competent Austin DWI attorney like Kyle Lowe to be on your side.
