DWI Process in Plano, Texas

Legal Guidance During for Your DWI

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving under the influence (DUI) are serious offenses in Texas.

If convicted, you could face:

  • A permanent criminal record
  • Fines, suspensions, surcharges, and even jail time
  • Mandated community service
  • The completion of education or intervention programs
It's important to note that second and third offenses, DWI's involving a child passenger, and DWI's resulting in an accident carry even more serious punishments.

Make sure that you act now and contact a Plano DWI defense lawyer as soon as you can.
