JAIL RELEASE - CALL NOW
The offense of DWI in Texas is a crime. A DWI is committed when an individual
operates a motor vehicle on any highway, street or waterway while under the influence of an intoxicant.
First and foremost: Do not answer any questions other than your
name and address.
Texas law states
that one is presumed to be under the influence if they have a Blood
Alcohol Content (BAC) of .08 or higher. For drivers who have had a
prior DWI arrest, they are presumed to be under the influence if they have
a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .08.
DRIVER LICENSE SUSPENSION - Your arrest may have included a
cancellation of your Texas driving privileges for a specific period
of time. YOU HAVE ONLY 15 DAYS FROM THE DATE OF YOUR ARREST TO
REQUEST A HEARING ON THIS MATTER. I believe that this hearing is
extremely important, not only to challenge your suspension but also
as an opportunity for your attorney to question the arresting
officer to find out exactly what he is going to say in court. If you
retain the law office of Ken Gibson to represent you, part of that
representation includes representing you at the driver license
suspension as your lawyer. However, remember you must request this
hearing no later than 15 days from your arrest so it is important
that you contact me as soon as possible to schedule an appointment.
If your Texas driving privileges are ultimately suspended, in most
cases we can get you a Texas license that will allow you to drive to
and from work.
WARNING BEWARE: TEXAS DRIVER LICENSE SURCHARGE!! Beginning
with any Texas DWI or Texas DUI Conviction for an offense committed
on or after 09/01/03, the Texas Department Of Public Safety is
authorized to charge a surcharge on your Driverís License. This
charge will range from $1,000.00 to $2,000.00 a year for three
years. Depending on whether you provided a breath sample, and the
results, you could be facing a $6,000.00 fee to keep your license.
BREATH TEST CASES: I own an Intoxilyzer 5000. If you took a
breath test at the jail, this is the same model of machine that you
used. I have also completed training under the Department of
Transportation regulations as an Intoxilyzer Operator and
Maintenance Technician. I also have access to various Breath Test
Experts that may be helpful in your case. Just because your results
were over a certain limit, does not automatically prove you guilty.
The government with all of its resources can frequently make your
life miserable; regardless of whether you have actually committed
the crime. Real life criminal law is NOT like television. Cases are
not resolved in one hour, and the solutions are normally not simple.
Hiring a criminal defense trial lawyer can be the most important
decision you make.
When you find yourself, a family member, or friend in this
situation, you need an experienced and well-skilled attorney who
practices only in the area of criminal defense law. For better or
worse, criminal law has its own unique practice and methodology.
Frequently you will find attorneys who practice criminal law, but
also handle personal injury, divorce, and other matters. They may be
good attorneys, but I believe that criminal law is too specialized
to risk my clients to any distractions facing an attorney who
handles multiple types of law and who is not in the trenches
Please call and schedule an appointment at your earliest
convenience, because I can help you through the unfamiliar territory
of the criminal justice system. Because each case is different and
special, I offer a free initial consultation where you and I can sit
down and discuss the charges against you and what options are
available to you. To assist you financially in paying any attorney
fees, I offer flat rate fees and flexible payment plans that will
allow you to hire me as your criminal defense attorney so that I can
start immediately to protect your rights.
