Criminal charges for DWI can result in a prison sentence and thousands of dollars in fines for persons found guilty in the court of law. In most cases, when a person is found guilty of a DWI offense in Harris County, it’s because they either accepted a plea, had poor or “cheap” legal representation, or didn’t have attorney or a plan at all.

Having an experienced courtroom warrior on your side is the best and only option when facing criminal charges in Texas. Not that the current charge has to be serious, or even dire, but if that same person ever has any form of skirmish with the law in the future the stakes can be serious escalated.

Perfect Example: Too many misdemeanor DWIs nets life in prison.
