Last updated on November 21, 2022

Being charge with a crime can be life-altering and potentially devastating. If you are facing serious criminal charges in Texas, you need an Waco criminal defense attorney who is ready to go to trial for you when necessary. Whether your charges are for violent crimes like assault and battery, drug crimes, property crimes like theft or burglary, or for federal white collar crimes, you can turn to my law office, Howell Law Firm, to find a Texas DUI lawyer who is effective in the courtroom.

Helping You Fight Drunk Driving Charges

Those who are caught driving while intoxicated can expect severe penalties. Under Texas state law, drivers may be confronted with significant penalties even on the first offense, including a maximum fine of $2,000, a mandatory minimum of three days in jail with a maximum sentence of 180 days, and a loss of driving privileges for up to a year. For repeat offenders, the fines can range from $4,000 to $10,000, with increased mandatory jail time from one month to a year and potentially prison time from two years up to a maximum of up to 10 years, and loss of driving privileges for up to two years as well.

Driving under the influence is serious and can have a staggering impact on your life if you are convicted. In order to mitigate the damage, you need help from a skilled and experienced attorney like me, Brian E. Howell. I have been helping people facing these severe charges for my entire career, and I am dedicated to ensuring that you are treated fairly in the criminal justice system and that your rights are respected.
