Fighting back against a charge of driving while intoxicated might help you keep your driving privileges while avoiding unjust fines and incarceration. Unfortunately, many motorists don’t understand the defenses that exist even if a breath or blood test indicates that their blood alcohol level was above the standard legal limit of .08 percent. Seigman, Starritt-Burnett & Sinkfield, PLLC in Harker Heights counters the allegations and evidence brought by the authorities and works diligently to identify faulty test results and unlawful police actions that could destroy the case against you. In Killeen, Copperas Cove and across the area, our Texas attorneys take on prosecutors and find creative ways to help reduce or eliminate DWI penalties.
Throughout Bell and Coryell counties, attorney Tom Seigman offers aggressive criminal defense in DWI cases and makes sure that clients understand critical legal issues such as:
In a free consultation, we’ll evaluate the case being brought against you and evaluate potential strategies to challenge the allegations.
Even if it’s your first offense, a DWI conviction can trigger a sentence of up to six months in jail in addition to a fine and license suspension. Whether you’ve never been accused of drunk driving before or are being charged as a multiple violator, we’ll press to reduce the penalty you face. When a loss of driving privileges will prevent you from getting to work, our firm can seek an occupational license for you. This gives you the ability to drive to your job with the installation of an ignition interlock device that requires you to pass a sobriety breath test before starting your vehicle.
In addition to criminal penalties, allegations of driving while impaired can result in civil claims if someone is hurt or property is damaged. Our attorneys have extensive experience in personal injury matters and can assist plaintiffs seeking monetary damages as well as individuals being sued in civil actions. Even if no DWI citation was made by the police, we will review whether alcohol or drugs contributed to the accident.
