Never represent yourself in a DWI case

Dozens of Texans face arrest every weekend for DWI. One recent campaign led by the Odessa Police Department led to the arrests of 22 drivers in a single weekend for driving while under the influence of alcohol. 

Even if you do not have a previous criminal record, you need to take a DWI charge seriously. Having a DWI conviction on your record could prevent the types of jobs you can get and where you can live. Many people think they can save money by representing themselves in court, but when it comes to your livelihood, hiring a DWI attorney is well worth the investment. 

Lawyers know how to refute and present evidence

Most laypeople do not understand the intricacies of the law. Experienced DWI attorneys know exactly what arguments to make to refute the prosecution's evidence. An attorney knows how to poke enough holes in an argument to bring about sufficient reasonable doubt. 

Attorneys know where to find witnesses

When you hire an attorney, you hire someone who has your best interest at heart. That means your lawyer will look high and low for anything to help your case. That includes speaking with everyone you interacted with during the night in question. A lawyer will also know what questions to ask these witnesses that will provide the greatest benefit to your case. 

Lawyers work hard to give you the lightest sentence possible

An attorney may not be able to throw a case out entirely, but there is at least a good possibility the lawyer can reduce the sentence. In Texas, a first offense for a DWI can still lead to several months of jail time, fines and a suspended driver's license. An attorney may be able to keep you out of jail, but you may still need to pay a small fine. This is certainly better than having the book thrown at you where you face the full repercussions of a DWI conviction.
