Houston Multiple DWI Attorney
Harsh Penalties for Conviction
Law enforcement and prosecutors take any DWI charges seriously, and they work hard to obtain convictions. This applies even more to those that are being charged with a 2nd, 3
rd or subsequent DWI offense. A 2
nd DWI is considered a Class A misdemeanor and can result in having your driver's license suspended for up to 2 years. You may have to pay a fine of up to $4000, be jailed for up to 1 year and have to do up to 200 hours of community service. A 3
rd or more DWI conviction is classified as a
third degree felony. Aside from having your license suspended for up to 2 years, fines can go as high as $10,000, community service up to 600 hours may be required and you can be imprisoned for up to 10 years.
The final consequences of conviction for multiple DWI offenses can adversely affect your life and the lives of your loved ones for many years to come. This is why it becomes vital to retain an effective, experienced Houston DWI lawyer to work on your defense. Your ability to earn an income, to take care of your family and many freedoms that you now enjoy are at stake.
Experience in Resolving DWI Charges
I am Attorney Ned Barnett, and I have over 20 years of successful experience in defending those accused of DWI offenses. I have served as a state and federal prosecutor and know how law enforcement and prosecutors operate in order to make arrests and get convictions. As a founding member of the National College for DUI Defense, I also know what is effective and what is not in defending DWI charges and how to obtain the best outcome possible in each case.
My experience with DWI has shown me that in many cases, good people have simply made a mistake. In some situations, an individual is unjustly charged when they are, in fact, innocent. I stand by my clients, giving them the advantage of my experience by aggressively pursuing an effective legal defense on their behalf.
Multiple DWI convictions result in stiff fines and penalties. Quickly
