Houston DWI Attorneys

In the state of Texas, drunk driving offenses prosecuted under the charge of driving while intoxicated, or DWI. Repeat offenses lead to more serious penalties, with the third or greater offense being handled as a third-degree felony. State law establishes a legal limit governing the concentration of alcohol that may be in a driver’s system while on the road. In order to determine whether this limit has been violated or not, faulty systems such as breathalyzers may be employed.
