Defending DWI Cases involving Injuries
Texas Intoxication Assault Cases
The experience of the attorney(s) representing you on your DWI-Injury/Assault case directly correlates to the outcome from judge/jury at trial. There are numerous intangibles that come into play when your case is being heard in court.
Competent Legal Representation Counts
Certain intangibles that come into play are how people receive your lawyer, how your lawyer orates his/her arguments, how words and phrases are structured by your legal team to prompt favor from judge and jury, all in addition to witty timing, among others.
When you’re represented by the Law Offices of Tad Nelson and Associates in the Brazoria County Criminal Court, you can rest assured that your DWI lawyer is not only well versed in the technical (legal) components of your case, but is also well-polished in dealing with other personalities – some of which may be judge and jury.
Touting our credentials as an ACS/CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist is not always enough or necessary. Sometimes, a friendly smile & tone can go a long way advocating on behalf of the accused.
Weathering the Climate of DWI Injury Litigation
Brazoria County Jurors Mean Business
When defending a person accused of, not only drunk driving, but also of causing an injury or auto accident as a result of driving while intoxicated, the backs of jurors could be pinned to their chairs in wait for the opportunity to finalize a hasty deliberation that will put you in jail.
Felony DWI Charges
Intoxicated Assaults are felony cases. The defendants are accused of exhibiting a “gross lack of moral judgement in which public safety was put at risk due to the irresponsible act of the defendant,” as prosecutors commonly boast.
However, we’ve represented hundreds of DWI defendants that were guilty of nothing more than having medical dysfunction, a technologically unsound breathalyzer test, poorly trained officers, and the aggression of the Texas legal system pursuing them.
If you’re innocent, you’re innocent.
There’s nothing that can change that.
