The Woodlands Felony DWI Defense Attorneys
Our Firm Provides Aggressive & Experienced Legal Services in Montgomery County
In Texas, you are considered intoxicated if your blood alcohol level reaches 0.08. And while drinking and driving is always a dangerous mix, authorities often employ field sobriety tests that measure breath, blood and cognition that can be faulty, deceptive or that manipulate you into admitting you operated a vehicle under alcohol’s influence.
Without knowing your rights, you or a loved one might reveal information that can be used against you, particularly when facing felony DWI charges. With more than five decades of collective experience, our legal team at Morgan Bourque Attorney at Law is highly qualified to protect private citizens and commercial drivers against these tactics.
As a former prosecutor, Attorney Morgan Bourque has handled a wide array of DWI cases from both sides of the courtroom. His knowledge of the Lone Star State’s DWI laws and precedents enables him to anticipate the actions that the opposing side may take, and develop an effective and personalized legal defense to counterattack the prosecution’s argument against you.

Texas Felony DWI Laws
Felony DWI (driving while intoxicated) charges are extremely serious and can impact every area of your life. A common misconception is that all charges are the same. However, the consequences change depending on the severity of the injuries caused, the extent of property damages the number of times you’ve committed the offense and the number of casualties. Where a misdemeanor is usually harsh, it is often reserved for first- or second-time offenders.
What are the Penalties for Felony DWI?
A felony DWI charge in Texas is far more severe than a misdemeanor and penalties can include:
Longer jail sentences – Up to 20 years.
Heavier fines – Up to $10,000.
Extended driver’s license suspensions.
Additionally, the stigma of being convicted of a felony DWI will likely impact your current and future employment and attract unwanted media attention.
