Austin Attorneys Challenging Drunk Driving Charges

One of the most frequently charged offenses in the Austin area, DWI (driving while intoxicated) is a primary focus of our practice. We are committed to helping our clients not only avoid jail time and the other serious consequences of a DWI conviction in criminal court, but to protecting their driving privileges in administrative hearings with the Texas Department of Public Safety. A DWI arrest alone can have a significant impact on your life. We are here to protect your interests.
