Texas Driver License Suspension Lawyer
We’ll Fight to Stop the Suspension of your Driving Privileges
When a person is charged with DWI in Brazoria County, or a related criminal offense, two establishments will immediately take interest; the Brazoria County District Attorney’s Office and the Texas Department of Public Safety.
A Two-Fold Nightmare
An arrest for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) is a two-fold nightmare for the defendant.
For one, the Texas Department of Public Safety will immediately deem the driver as a threat to public safety and motion for Administrative License Revocation; for two, DWI is a crime which will bring serious criminal charges that can result in a lengthy jail sentence and a number of fines and other financial penalties.
Administrative License Revocation
You have no right to drive. Driving is a privilege granted by the State of Texas!
When a person is charged with DWI in Brazoria, under Texas Law, a process is initiated which involves the immediate “administrative” revocation of the defendant’s driving “privileges”. To be more clear about the seriousness of the process; the State of Texas will suspend your Texas Driver License long before you’ve been found guilty of any crime in the court of law.
The police officer or sheriff’s deputy only needs to “say” or “feel” that you were drunk, and that’s the end of driving.
When a person loses their driving privileges it can seriously stymie their lives and that of their family members.
Children have to be picked up from school, groceries need to be purchased, and the big one, transportation to-and-from work.
Driving While License Suspended = Jail
If your Texas Driver License is suspended (DWLI or DWLS), and you’re caught driving by police, you’ll go straight to jail. If you have your child(ren) with you at the time, they’ll be left in the hands of the state (CPS) until a legal guardian can claim and take custody of them or until you can post bond and get them yourself.
Having your Texas Driver License suspended due to a DWI in Brazoria will put you in a situation that can best be described as “bad”.
