DWI Crimes Affordable Defense Aimed at Results

Fort Worth DWI Attorney

Bilingual Legal Service for the Fort Worth Community

Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a criminal offense that calls for the immediate intervention of an experienced criminal defense attorney. DWI in Texas is a serious offense that carries with it multiple penalties—even on a first offense for those who have never had any prior criminal history. It is vital to remember that initial charges do not automatically translate into a conviction. Also, you have the right to legal counsel, to your day in court, and to a presumption of innocence until proven guilty.

At Cañas & Flores, we strongly advise you to seek our help in any DWI arrest as soon as possible. In that way, you will have the advantage of two defense attorneys available to begin deconstructing your arrest and all of the circumstances and factors connected with the charge. Multiple factors are at play in any DWI arrest—including legal, scientific, and technical matters—all of which may have flaws, mistakes, and inconsistencies that can be used to challenge your charges in court. Our team is well-versed in how to investigate and use these factors to your advantage.
