stephen-handyAs a former Tarrant County District Attorney, I have spent a lot of time helping clients through Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) cases. I fight hard to defend those who are charged with a DWI because these offenses can have a serious impact your future.

A DWI charge is the one crime where I meet the most respectable citizens our country has to offer. It is the one crime that many people, who would not have otherwise committed a crime, find themselves arrested for.

I have represented teachers, pastors, lawyers, doctors, and pilots for the offense of DWI. It is the one crime that generally good people have committed, but often as a result of a poor decision, they find themselves charged with DWI. As a result, their futures can be impacted greatly. But understand, it is not illegal if you are over the age of 21 to drink and then drive a car. It is only illegal if you drink or take prescription drugs to the point where you lose your mental or physical faculties, or your blood alcohol level is above .08 at the time of driving.

Officers have to make quick decisions in the field and only need probably cause to make an arrest. However, juries must be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt. You need an experienced DWI lawyer that understands the nuisances and scientific aspects of DWI law.

I have been a criminal defense lawyer for over 20 years and I am a member of the National College for DUI Defense. It is my duty as a criminal defense lawyer to be as knowledgeable as possible in the area of DWI offenses. A good DWI defense requires a lawyer who is committed to staying up to date on the latest technology and defense strategies.

The consequences that may result from a DWI range from a driver’s license suspension to a criminal record that stays with you for the rest of your life.  Drivers charged with a DWI must attend an ALR hearing to determine if their license is suspended. These hearings are important and I try my best to win every case. If you are charged with a DWI you need to contact a criminal defense attorney who has experience with ALR hearings to prevent your license from being suspended.

Many charged with a DWI lose hope, but I will tell you, there are many ways to win your case. I respect all Fort Worth Police Officers, but like anyone else, they can make mistakes. Part of my job is to make sure the officer had a reason to stop your car and that proper procedures were followed while taking a sample of your blood or breath. Just because you blew over a .08 does not mean your case is lost. I will do whatever I can to help you obtain the best possible result.

Additional types of DWI/DUI cases:

  • Intoxication Manslaughter
  • Intoxicated Assault
  • DWI – Misdemeanor Repetition
  • DWI – Felony
