Common DWI Mistakes in Texas
What You Should Not Do During a DWI Investigation
From the moment you are pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI/DWI) of alcohol or drugs, the officer is building a case against you.
Even if you were not driving while intoxicated or under the legal blood alcohol content limit of 0.08, each word and action is meticulously planned to have you incriminate yourself, and make what are known as “DWI mistakes.”
On-the-spot DWI mistakes include:
Taking a faulty field sobriety test.
Answering seemingly-inconspicuous questions.
Having another passenger speak for you.
Speaking under duress, and others.
That’s why, if you have made DWI mistakes or believe you may soon receive DWI charges, your choice of lawyer will be one of the most important decisions you ever make. You urgently need an advocate with the skill, dedication, and resources to fight for you. Whether you were aware or unaware of your rights, Attorney Morgan Bourque is the DWI lawyer with the track record of successful drug-related defenses that can help ease the stress of this critical time.
Many law abiding citizens continue to make common DWI mistakes after the interaction with the police. We can help you avoid:
Solely representing yourself at an Administrative License Revocation hearing. Many defendants incorrectly believe that merely showing up to the hearing will help them keep their license.
