What is the Difference Between DUI and DWI in Texas?

In Texas, the differences between DUI & DWI include the class of misdemeanor and the age of the defendant. Driving Under the Influence is a Class C misdemeanor, while Driving While Intoxicated is a Class B misdemeanor (a more serious offense).

Moreover, DUI charges only apply to defendants who are under the age of 21 (minors). As an accomplished DWI defense attorney, I’ll provide you with clarity on these distinctions and help you to comprehend the charges you’re facing.

Do You Need a DWI Attorney in Texas?

Yes, if you’ve been charged with DWI in Texas, then seeking legal representation is essential to safeguarding your future. A skilled DWI attorney assesses the details of your case, identifies potential defenses, and advocates on your behalf in court. With my expertise in Texas DWI laws and courtroom procedures, I’ll provide the guidance and support you need to navigate this challenging legal process effectively.

Can a DWI be Dismissed in Texas?

Yes, while every DWI case is unique, there are circumstances in which a DWI charge may be dismissed in Texas. There are many factors that could lead to dismissal or reduction of charges, including procedural errors during the arrest, insufficient evidence, or violations of your constitutional rights. 

As a DWI attorney, I analyze the facts of your case meticulously to determine the best course of action for achieving a favorable outcome. This may include seeking dismissal or negotiating a plea bargain.

How Long Can a DUI Case Stay Open in Texas?

A DUI case can stay open in Texas for up to two years from the date of the incident. This statute of limitations means that, if the District Attorney has failed to file charges within that time, then they’re unable to prosecute you.

As an experienced DWI defense attorney, I’ll work diligently to expedite the legal process while ensuring that your rights are protected at every stage. I’ll keep you informed about the progress of your case and provide comprehensive legal representation until its conclusion.
