DWI and Intoxication Crimes
DWI and Intoxication Offenses
An arrest or criminal conviction for DWI in Texas is a terrible and alarming event for any person. It can cost you your employment, your freedom, and thousands of dollars in fines and fees. The scariest part is this: DWI is a crime based entirely on the government’s opinion. Our job is to make sure that opinion doesn’t hold water with a judge or jury.
Just because you blow over .08 does not mean you are guilty.
You will almost certainly be able to find a lawyer that will take your case and quickly plead you guilty in a DWI case. If that’s what you’re looking for, you’re not in the right place. We fight. We win.
The Akers Firm has obtained dismissals and ‘not guilty’ verdicts for people charged with DWI in several cities and counties throughout Texas. The reason for this is simple: in addition to being effective criminal defense lawyers, we’re also trained and studied in the science behind the testing that goes into the determination of whether or not someone is intoxicated. We know its flaws, we know its holes, and better yet? We know how to exploit them.
In a practice area where being up-to-date on science and the law is absolutely necessary, the Akers Firm knows how to effectively defend DWI cases. Some cases, arguably the most serious DWI cases, result in injury or death to another individual. The Akers Firm has successfully obtained ‘no-bills’ (acquittals at the grand jury level) and dismissals for several individuals in situations where they have been charged with causing the death of another individual due to intoxication.
We have successfully represented individuals at all level of proceedings in:
- Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
