Aggressive Representation for Drunk Driving Charges

DWI Defense Austin

DWI Basics

Under Texas law, you can be convicted of a DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) in one of three ways: If you have a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level above 0.08% or if you have lost full control of your mental or physical faculties because of alcohol, drugs, or a combination of the two. Jason Trumpler has handled thousands DWI/DUI cases in both Texas and California. He has also tried over 100 DWI/DUI cases before a jury and is ready to answer questions, provide invaluable tips, and begin constructing an effective DWI defense for our clients throughout Central Texas, including Austin.

Extreme DWI

An Extreme DWI is a drunk driving charge involving a serious accident. An injury-related accident is known as intoxication assault and qualifies as a third-degree felony. An accident that causes death, or intoxication manslaughter, is a second degree felony. Recently, Texas lawmakers also defined an Extreme DWI as driving with a BAC above 0.15%.

Marijuana DWI

A DWI can also refer to driving under the influence of drugs. Here in Austin and across Travis County, police are cracking down on this crime, and unfortunately, traces of marijuana can remain in your system for weeks. Even a first-time offense can result in up to 180 days in jail and a maximum of $2,000 in fines. Jason Trumpler has vast experience handling drug crimes of all types.

Prescription Pill DWI

Many people are unaware that they can also be charged with a DWI for driving under the influence of certain medications – even those that are prescribed to them. Unfortunately, the punishment for a prescription-pill DWI can be just as severe as they are for illegal drugs, so it is important to seek top-quality counsel for this charge.

BWI (Boating While Intoxicated)

Many Texans assume that different drinking laws apply on the water, but boating while intoxicated (BWI) is just as serious of a charge as drunk driving. And similar to a DWI, a BWI can be raised to a felony charge if it involved an accident causing serious injury or death. A first offense BWI without injury is categorized as a Class B misdemeanor and can merit up to 180 days in prison and $2,000 in fines.

DWI Testing 

Generally, you will be tested for intoxication in one of four ways – a blood test, breath test, urine test, or field sobriety test. Chemical tests are easily tainted and are often not administered by properly trained officials. Field sobriety tests, though widely used, are notoriously inaccurate. As a result, Jason Trumpler can often prove the imprecision of these tests in court.

ALR Hearings

In Texas, if you are arrested for Driving While Intoxicated or any other alcohol related driving crime, including BWI, you must face an administrative hearing regarding your drive’rs license. This is separate and distinct from your court case. An Administrative License Revocation (ALR) Hearing, can result in the suspension of your Texas driver’s license. If you a refuse a chemical test, the length of the suspension will be longer than if you voluntarily give a sample. After arrest or notification of arrest, you have 15 days to request a hearing to retain your driver’s license. Even if you lose the ALR Hearing, you may still be eligible for an occupational license.

Occupational License

If you have been convicted of a DWI, BWI, or any other alcohol related charge or charged with any of these crimes and lost your Administrative License Review Hearing (ALR), you may be able to apply for an occupational license. This is a restricted license which will allow you to drive for work, school, and necessary household tasks. Jason Trumpler or one of his associates can help you with the application, which must be submitted to the proper court of jurisdiction. Once the court issues an order allowing the occupational license, you must present the order to the Texas Department of Public Safety along with associated fees and administrative items.
