Aggressive and Experienced DWI Defense

Driving while Intoxicated, DWI, is sometimes also referred to as driving under the influence, DUI. It is illegal in Texas and across the nation to operate a motor vehicle while legally intoxicated. The level that determines legal intoxication varies across the states and depending on the driver, but in general, it is .08% blood alcohol content (BAC). This can be measured by a chemical test, wither via blood, urine, or breath. If you have been charged with DWI, it is crucial that you retain an experience Texas DWI defense attorney.

If you have lost your license because of a drunk driving charge, you only have 15 days from the date of arrest to schedule a ALR hearing and get your license reinstated.

Your future driving privileges and your criminal trial both depend on the quick retention of an experienced Gregg County DWI defense lawyer. Although you will have a temporary license for the immediate period after DWI arrest, you will need to attend the administrative hearing to get your full license reinstated. Without reinstatement, many people find it exceedingly difficult or even impossible to attend work, take care of their children, and more. In addition, the arresting officer will have to present his or her reasonable suspicion or probable cause, which will give Mr. Novy a better idea of which defense to use.
