DWI Defending Rights. Fighting Injustice.

DWI Attorney in San Antonio

Effective Lawyer Fighting in Your Corner

The Law Office of Roberto Ambrosino, PLLC can provide you with the legal counsel you need to resolve your case. While the terms DUI and DWI are often used interchangeably, the main difference between the two is a matter of age and the seriousness of the charges.

In the State of Texas, it is illegal to for all drivers drive a motor vehicle or boat:

  1. With a blood alcohol content (BAC) in excess of 0.08%;
  2. If they have lost use of their physical facilities as a result of alcohol or drug consumption; or
  3. If they have lost use of their mental faculties as a result of alcohol or drug consumption.

Drivers under the age of 21 cannot drive with ANY detectable amount of alcohol in their system, AND if suspected can be CHARGED WITH "DUI" OR DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE, a Class C Misdemeanor. Drivers under the age of 21 can ALSO be charged with a DWI like any other adult over the age of 21, which is usually a Class B Misdemeanor for first-time offenders.

Police officers determine a driver's BAC level by conducting a variety of tests, such as:

  • Breath tests
  • Blood tests
  • Field sobriety tests

However, it has been found that the results of these tests can be faulty, which is why you need to secure legal representation as soon as possible to protect your rights.

DWI Penalties in Texas

If you are arrested and charged with a DWI as a first offense, you could face the following penalties:

  • $2,000 fine
  • 6 months in county jail
  • Driver's license suspension
  • DUI / DWI education program
  • Ignition interlock device
  • Community service

Drivers who are arrested under a repeat DWI charge must keep in mind that the charges brought against them will be more severe.
