Understanding Texas DWI Laws
In Texas, fighting DWI-related criminal charges can be challenging to navigate without legal guidance. As a Texas Board Certified criminal defense lawyer, I can help you understand these laws and build a strong defense to protect your rights.
Since 1991, I’ve practice law in Texas and have provided legal counsel to people accused of crimes since 1995. If you need to talk with an experienced defense attorney about helping you with DWI charges, don’t hesitate to call my office. I’m Tad Nelson, founder of the Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates.

Penalties for DWI Convictions
DWI convictions in Texas carry serious consequences, such as license suspension, fines, and even jail time.
Depending on the nature of the offense, whether you’re a habitual DWI offender or the prime suspect in an intoxication manslaughter case, the prison sentence for persons convicted under these circumstances could be lengthy, counted in years or even decades.
However, we can help even in the most severe cases. Our experienced DWI defense lawyers can work to minimize these penalties or even have your charges dismissed altogether. If you have questions, call us.
Field Sobriety Tests and Breathalyzer Results
A key aspect of DWI defense is challenging the validity of field sobriety tests and breathalyzer results. With my knowledge of DWI testing procedures, I can identify errors or inconsistencies that may work in your favor.
There are a number of reasons that sobriety test results can be thrown out of court. This includes poor training on part of the officer administering the test, poor evidence collection and storage methods, and can even include challenging the veracity of the equipment used to test and analyze the results. It’s not uncommon for us to achieve positive results for our clients, even when they think the chips are down.
Protecting Your Driving Privileges
If you’re facing a DWI charge, your driving privileges are at risk. As a skilled criminal defense lawyer, I can help you contest license suspensions and work to preserve your ability to drive.
If you can get in touch with me office within 15 days of your arrest for DWI, we can request an ALR hearing and fight the suspension of your Texas Driver License. If we win at the ALR hearing, it could be positive dividends during your criminal trial for DWI. In fact, it may help us convince the State of Texas to dismiss your case.
