DWI cases involve both a civil and criminal component, and our Prosper, Texas DWI attorneys are experienced at handling both.
The civil portion of DWI charges involves the Department of Public Safety’s attempt to have your driver’s license suspended. Although it is possible to obtain an occupational license that allows individuals to drive for up to 12 hours per day, for individuals who commute long distances or travel extensively for their employment, the suspension of their driver’s license, even with the limited driving privileges, can literally cost them their job.
The criminal portion involves criminal charges and can result in possible jail or prison time, depending on whether the charge is a first, second or third offense, and fines up to $10,000.
If you have been arrested and charged with a DWI, it is important that you contact a Prosper DWI attorney immediately. Whether or not you were intoxicated is based not only the officer’s observations of your behavior and proper administration of field sobriety tests, but also on the science behind determining blood alcohol content from Breathalyzer and blood tests.
Our attorneys not only understand the science behind these results, but are experienced in pinpointing the weaknesses in the science and explaining it to the jury. The result: the DWI attorneys at Rosenthal & Wadas have successfully won our clients’ acquittals and dismissals of all charges.
Drug offense is a broad term that covers any number of drug-related crimes, including:
- Possession of a controlled substance or drug paraphernalia
- Delivery of a controlled substance
- Possession or delivery in a drug free zone, such as a school
- Drug trafficking or manufacturing
- Forging or altering a prescription
- Money laundering in connection with the drug trade
Defense of drug crimes cases requires a thorough understanding of not only the substantive and procedural laws, but of the science behind drug testing, especially where drug manufacturing is concerned.
Every drug crimes charge has very specific factual elements that the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt in order to win a conviction at trial. If the defense can raise reasonable doubt as to even one element of any crime, then the jury has no choice but to enter a verdict of not guilty.
Our Prosper drug crimes attorneys have handled thousands of drug crimes cases and will meticulously examine all of the evidence to find the weaknesses in the prosecution’s ability to prove each element, and use those weaknesses to obtain a dismissal of all charges or an acquittal at trial.
