If you were arrested for driving while intoxicated, you need legal representation to protect your rights.
You have just been arrested for DWI. You are embarrassed. You are frustrated. You are confused. You need a Houston DWI lawyer to help you understand what you are up against and to make sure that you are not wrongly convicted of driving while intoxicated. Davis Haines, Attorney at Law PLLC will walk you through the entire legal process.
A DWI conviction will have an immediate impact on your life. If you are convicted of DWI in Texas you may lose your driver's license for a year, you may have to attend a DWI education program, and you may face large fines and license surcharges. If you are convicted of DWI in Texas you may even face jail time and an extended period of probation.
We are committed to representing individuals who have been wrongly accused of DWI in Houston and throughout the State of Texas. We know the rules of the game, and we will use them to your advantage. Our goal is to aggressively defend your rights and resolve the case against you as quickly as possible.
From the moment you are arrested for DWI certain clocks start ticking. For instance, if you do not request an ALR hearing within fifteen days of your arrest, you will automatically lose your license. It is absolutely critical that you contact a DWI lawyer as soon as possible after your arrest.
Beyond these short term consequences, a DWI conviction will follow you around for the rest of your life. A DWI conviction can prevent you from obtaining certain professional licenses and prevent you from obtaining certain jobs.
A DWI charge is not a minor offense. Driving while intoxicated is a serious charge with serious consequences.

Houston DWI Defense
Our Houston DWI Lawyers will examine the evidence against you and look for mistakes made by your arresting officer or other weaknesses in the evidence against you. Based on the results of this investigation, we will advise you of the best strategy for your DWI defense. You will be involved in every decision we make as we move through through the process.
In some cases, the state may have strong enough evidence against you that we may advise you that our best option is to negotiate a deal with the prosecutors. In other cases, the evidence against you may be weak enough that we recommend going to trial. We will investigate your DWI charge thoroughly and advise you on the best strategy for your DWI defense. However, you will always have a say in how your DWI case is handled.
Regardless of how we decide to proceed on your case, you need an experienced DWI lawyer who is willing to take your case to trial. Prosecutors know which DWI lawyers will try a case and which ones will not. You do not want a lawyer with a reputation for plea bargaining all of his DWI cases.
If you are innocent of the charge of DWI, you need a Houston DWI attorney who will take your case to trial. Many Houston DWI lawyers are in the business of making deals with the district attorneys who prosecute those charged with DWI.
Harris County DWI DIVERT
Harris County offers qualifying first time DWI offenders a special DIVERT program. While the program is not for every first time Houston DWI offender, it can be a very effective program for those who qualify. The program allows first time DWI offenders the opportunity to have their case completely dismissed by simply completing the program requirements.
Special Considerations for Second DWI or Third DWI
If you are facing a second or third DWI charge, the stakes are significantly higher. The penalties you face for multiple DWI convictions are much higher than for a first offense. If you are facing charges on a second or third DWI conviction in Houston or anywhere else in Southeast Texas, you need a good DWI lawyer who is experienced enough to handle your case.
