Are You Facing Another DWI Charge?

Texas has some of the toughest laws against drunk driving in the country. If you have been arrested for a suspected second, third or fourth DWI, the potential penalties are much more severe than for the earlier offense. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney to protect your rights and defend you in court.

I am criminal law attorney Mark T. Davis, and I represent clients who are facing DWI charges in and around El Paso. If you have been arrested for your second or third DWI, you have no time to lose. Send me an email or call 915-603-5863 now so we can start planning your defense.

A Second DWI Arrest in Texas Requires an Aggressive Legal Response

Driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence is a class B misdemeanor under state law, and a conviction can include jail time and large fine. This punishment is designed to convince you never to commit the crime again, becoming a habitual offender. If you have been arrested for another DUI offense within three years of your first arrest, the penalties you could face are significantly greater.

Under Texas law, the sentencing for DUI convictions increases in severity according to the number of prior convictions on the defendant's record. Penalties for multiple DWIs include:

  • Second offense: Class A misdemeanor with a $4,000 fine and at least 30 days in jail

  • Third offense: Third-degree felony, which carries a two- to 10-year prison sentence and can cost you up to $10,000 in fines

Any repeat DWI offender must also pay $4,500 for surcharges under the State Driver Responsibility Program.

Repeat DWI charges must be handled head-on. My proactive approach to representation can ensure that your rights are protected from overzealous prosecutors and law enforcement. I will carefully evaluate your case, and raise defenses against procedural misconduct and faulty testing equipment as necessary. My superior preparation has made the difference for my clients at trial and can do the same for you.

Let's Overcome This Challenge Together

If you have been arrested for DWI and have previous convictions on your record, you cannot afford to hesitate. You could face mandatory jail time and huge fines if convicted. I am prepared to stand up for your rights and defend your freedom as your lawyer, helping you secure the best outcome possible.
