DWI Defense Attorney in Fort Worth

It’s critical to remember that an arrest for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol does not necessarily mean a conviction will follow. Remember: science is not perfect. Blood and breath testing results can be marred by defective equipment, improperly trained officers, and influenced by your medical history. There are many defenses that an experienced lawyer can use to establish doubt in the prosecution’s case and potentially dismiss a case entirely.

Aside from potential jail time, having your driver’s license suspended is one of the most severe penalties associated with a DWI conviction. For first-time offenders, driver’s license suspensions can be for a minimum of three months to a maximum of a year.

If you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated, hiring legal representation may be the best action you can take to avoid these stiff penalties. The Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy represent individuals who have been charged with DWI in Fort Worth, and they have a 91% success rate on cases announced for trial since 2002.
