Houston DWI Attorney
Fight Your Houston DWI Charges
The state of Texas has very tough laws against driving while intoxicated. The worst part is that most people arrested for DWI are good people who just made a mistake or are wrongfully accused of something they did not do. What does this mean to you? It means that if you are stopped and the police are of the opinion you are intoxicated, you are going to be arrested. Now you are facing serious charges and possible jail time. There are ways to fight to avoid these consequences with the help of a Houston DWI lawyer at the Law Offices of Ned Barnett.

Former State and Federal Prosecutor
As a former state and federal prosecutor, I have over 25 years of experience in criminal law and know that good people sometimes make mistakes or are wrongly accused.

field sobriety tests, I know what defenses to look for and how to go about seeking a reduction of charges or even a dismissal of your case. In all matters relating to DWI, including
DWI expungement, or
unlawful police stops, I can provide you with the competence and full understanding of the law to better serve you.
Drugs and Driving
Criminal charges of DWI are not exclusively about drivers who get behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol. In fact, according to the law, it is just as much of a crime to drive while impaired by drugs – whether the drug is a controlled substance or a perfectly legal over-the-counter medication. The problem with these cases is that figuring out how much of the drug is in your system is difficult, not 100% accurate, and can vary from person to person. If you have recently been arrested for driving while impaired due to taking drugs, you should not hesitate to consult with my firm. I have extensive experience handling DWI-related cases, including those that involve driving under the influence of drugs. You can be confident knowing that I will be there to fight tooth and nail to protect your rights.
Proven DWI Defense Strategies
It is not uncommon for me to discover errors in the prosecution's case. It could be that:
- There was no probable cause to pull you over.
- Your constitutional rights were violated when they conducted the police stop or at some point during the arrest procedure.
- The testing of your blood or breath may have been done incorrectly, or
- The testing device may not have been properly maintained/calibrated.
With my expertise in this area, I can readily tell when the prosecution has a weak case and seek a dismissal. Let me help with your DWI case by contacting my office today.
