Guiding you through life’s toughest moments.

DUI Charges Are Serious, You Need An Attorney Who Knows How To Defend You

A DUI arrest is a frightening event for an alleged first-time offender. People facing a first-offense DUI conviction have often had no previous interactions with law enforcement. Many have no real drinking problem but were stopped after a wedding, graduation party or company party where champagne was served or appeared impaired because of the effects of legal prescription medications. Suddenly, a criminal record for the first time is a real possibility.

Drunk driving charges are also very serious for alleged repeat offenders. A second, third or fourth DUI conviction often leads to jail time, high-dollar penalties and revocation of one’s driver’s license. If you face DUI charges in Texas, you need to work with an experienced criminal defense attorney to protect your future. At The Cantú Law Firm, I defend clients in Laredo and throughout South Texas against damaging DUI charges.

Protecting Your License And Future

Driving under the influence of alcohol is a serious crime in Texas. A conviction can result in jail time, fines and a permanent spot on your criminal record. It can also lead to suspension or revocation of driving privileges. Loss of one’s driver’s license and a misdemeanor or felony on record can mean a person cannot get to work or maintain employment.

Regardless of the circumstances, the wheels of the criminal justice system start turning once a DUI arrest occurs. Prompt legal representation from an experienced criminal defense attorney can significantly affect the outcome after your first-time or repeat offense DUI/DWI arrest in South Texas.

Having served as a prosecutor, I have first-hand knowledge of the state’s tactics and strategies against those charged with a DUI. I use my experience to create dynamic legal strategies with my client’s best interests in mind. Multiple defenses exist for a DUI that we may use depending on the circumstances of your case. For example, I will examine whether the police stopped you with proper justification, if the Breathalyzer test was valid and legal or if alcohol dependency could give you a second chance if you address the problem.
