DWI Overview

Prominent Dallas DWI/DUI Lawyers

The penalties for drunk driving are increasingly severe. In fact, the laws have become so harsh that even refusing a blood alcohol test can result in a mandatory driver's license suspension. At Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl LLP, in Dallas, Texas, we aggressively defend the rights and interests of people charged with a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) or DWI (Driving While Intoxicated).

Who Would You Want Handling Your DWI?

The DWI attorneys at Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl LLP have experience both prosecuting and defending DWIs. We understand how the police handle, and mishandle, DWI arrests, and how the prosecutor's office builds DWI cases.

Our DWI attorneys understand how to challenge field tests and breath tests, how to help people obtain occupational driver's licenses, and how to avoid harsh DWI penalties. It has been said that "a cheap lawyer can be the most expensive lawyer you ever hire". This is especially true of DWI attorneys. Including fines, increased insurance premiums, driver's license surcharges, automobile interlock devices, and legal fees, the impact on earnings a DWI conviction can have on your lifetime earning power can cost upwards of $50,000.00 or more. In addition, it can result in jail time and a permanent criminal record.

Our DWI lawyers quickly begin preparing your DWI defense. Once you receive a notice of suspension there are only fifteen days to request a hearing in order to prevent an administrative license suspension or automatic license revocation. We thoroughly prepare to represent our clients at the suspension hearing. This is only our first step. We examine the in-car video to ensure the officer had probable cause to make the stop and begin field sobriety tests. We determine whether the field sobriety tests, breath tests or blood tests were properly administered. We defend our clients with every strategy, tactic, and ounce of energy at our disposal. Our goal is simple: to win.
