Dallas DWI and 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. Such people 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.


DWI Defense Attorney Serving Dallas / Fort Worth | Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy

The criminal defense attorneys at Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy have protected the futures of men, women, and youths charged with misdemeanor, felony, and DUI in Dallas and the surrounding communities since 2002. They understand the techniques used by the prosecution, scientific weaknesses in evidence, deficiencies in investigative procedures, and other factors that can be used to your advantage. When you have so much at stake, it's critical to work with a Dallas criminal defense attorney who has both the experience and perspective necessary to fight for the best outcome for your particular case.

Our attorneys confidently defend clients in a variety of criminal cases, both inside and outside the courtroom. This includes charges for possession of a controlled substance, trafficking, manufacturing, and other drug or narcotics offenses. Texas is not known for its leniency on drug offenders, even for something as common as a marijuana charge in Dallas. Because these charges can greatly impact your current or future employment options, it's critical to work with a drug defense attorney as early in the process as possible.

Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy understands every case is unique. Whether you are facing a charge of domestic violence in Dallas, assault charge in Irving, or any other alleged crime, our lawyers will give your case the highest levels of attention. Call (972) 233-5700 or contact us online to take the important first steps towards defending your future with a fierce advocate at your side.

Dallas DWI Lawyer – Aggressive Defense When You need it Most

Arrests for DWI (driving while intoxicated, also known as DUI or driving under the influence) can be stressful and anxiety-inducing. It can be even more intimidating to face these charges 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 Dallas DWI defense attorney. The lawyers at Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy 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 has helped 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 arrested for an alleged DWI or other criminal traffic offense in Dallas, Fort Worth, Irving, McKinney, Denton, or the surrounding communities, call (972) 233-5700. 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.
