DWI & DUI

Eric Lim, Austin Criminal Defense Attorney for DUI & DWI Cases Today, the penalties for drunk driving in Texas have never been more severe. For example, DWI (driving while intoxicated) is the only misdemeanor criminal offense for which you cannot receive deferred adjudication under Texas law. Moreover, new state laws require that if your Texas driver’s license is suspended for a drunk driving conviction (DWI), you will be required to pay a minimum of $1,000 per year for three years just to keep your license.  That’s $3000 in fines added to the sometimes overwhelming financial and personal consequences of losing your driver’s license on a drunk driving (DWI) charge.
