The Law Offices of
Richard C. McConathy
Dallas-Fort Worth Criminal Defense Lawyer
Charges for any criminal offense can be a frightening experience, regardless of the severity of the alleged crime. This is especially true for first time offenders who have no familiarity with the Texas criminal justice system. In a matter of moments you may feel alone and overwhelmed. The consequences for a criminal conviction can also be severe, impacting your future employment options and even lifestyle. However, it's important to remember that an arrest doesn't mean conviction, especially with the guidance of an experienced criminal defense lawyer in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Dallas DWI Lawyer – Aggressive Defense When You need it Most
An arrest for DWI (driving while intoxicated, also known as DUI or driving under the influence) can be stressful and anxiety-inducing, whether it is an arrest for a first DUI in Dallas, underage DWI in McKinney, or a intoxication assault in Fort Worth. It can be even more intimidating to face this charge alone. It's important to remember that an arrest for DWI does not mean that you will be convicted or even lose your license, especially when aided by an experienced DWI defense attorney.
The attorneys at The Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy have been protecting the futures of men, women, and youth facing charges of DWI since 2002. With thousands of DWI cases on their resume, our attorneys have distinguished themselves with a high rate of trial success in cases ending in not guilty verdicts or dismissals. Their knowledge of the law and science behind impaired driving cases has proven to be an asset for people facing even the most serious of traffic crimes.
If you have been charged with DWI, you must request a hearing within 15 days of your arrest to prevent immediate suspension of your driver's license. Whether you are facing your first DWI or this has happened before, the important thing is to take immediate action to preserve your rights and possibly your freedom. We encourage you to call or contact us online for a free confidential review of your case.
If you have been charged with a DUI, it's important to have a basic understanding of the charges you face and your rights in the situation. DWI has increasingly become a highly technical criminal charge. Law enforcement officers are encouraged to become specialized in conducting DUI arrests and receive certification in Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. Blood alcohol content levels are often determined by DWI tests, including breathing into a device such as the Intoxilyzer 5000. However, even these specialized advancements are not immune to error. Each Dallas DWI defense attorney at our firm is highly knowledgeable in this field science, which is essential to creating a strong defense strategy.
If you have been charged with a DWI or other criminal traffic offense in Dallas, Fort Worth, Irving, McKinney, Denton, or the surrounding communities, call (972) 445-4300. While we have helped thousands of people in DWI and criminal traffic offense situations, we understand that every case is unique. From the moment of your free consultation, we give you our full dedication and assistance, spending the time to truly understand each aspect of your arrest.
