During holiday weekends in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, DWI laws are strictly enforced. So much so that if you refuse to take a portable breath test (PBT) at the initial traffic stop, the police will almost instantly contact a judge to get a warrant to draw your blood in order to determine your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level. At the Shapiro Law Firm, our Texas DWI no refusal weekend lawyers provide dedicated legal assistance for people who have been charged with DWI following the results of a blood test.
If you have been charged with a DWI on a no refusal weekend, it is important to talk with a DWI/DUI defense attorney at the Shapiro Law Firm as soon as possible. With more than 40 years of experience, our lawyers can help you understand your options, protect your rights and make sure that you feel confident about your defense.
Building a Strong Defense
If you refuse a PBT on a holiday weekend, the police will draw your blood to determine your BAC level. However, this process is prone to many types of errors. For example, there may be an omission or a mistake on the warrant. Oftentimes, the warrant may not meet the legal requirements for accuracy. Your blood may not be drawn until hours after the initial traffic stop, which makes it difficult to prove that you were actually intoxicated at the time of the stop.
Our Plano criminal defense attorneys will do everything in their power to build a strong defense and help you avoid a DWI conviction. Of course, every case is unique, and it is important to speak with us as soon as possible following an arrest so we can provide you with honest advice about how best to proceed. You do not have to accept the results of a blood or breath test as proof of guilt. We will fight to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the criminal process.
