Do You Need A DUI/DWI Lawyer? Let Us Evaluate Your Case.

Attorney Michael J. Crawford knows DUI and DWI Law. Attorney Crawford is also an excellent Jury Trial Lawyer and concentrates a portion of his criminal defense practice in DUI/DWI defense of the "drunk driving" statute. The term "drunk driving" is in quotes because none of these laws require that you be "drunk" or "intoxicated" to be guilty of a misdemeanor or felony. All that is required is that your ability to operate a vehicle has been impaired to any extent at all or that your blood alcohol level exceeds the state limit (which is now .08 percent in all states).

Texas has laws against DUI (driving under the influence) for drivers under the age of 21 and DWI (driving while intoxicated) for all others, but these terms refer to the same offense. The consequences of DUI and DWI are influenced by your age, blood alcohol limit (BAC), whether you have been arrested for DWI in the past, and whether you caused injury or death during the DWI. An underage DUI or multiple DUI convictions can result in the loss of driving privileges for a long time.

Attorney Michael J. Crawford stands ready to help you and defend your rights. The firm can advise you step-by-step about what to do after a drunk driving arrest.
