Felony DWI/Third-Offense DWI
When facing criminal charges for felony DUI/DWI in Texas, it is critical that you understand that the attorney you select to defend you could make a dramatic difference in your quality of life in the future. Will you spend the next 10 years in jail? Or will your attorney challenge the evidence in such a manner that the charges must be reduced or dismissed?
