Collin County DWI Lawyer

One of the most common crimes a person can be charged with in Collin County is driving while intoxicated (DWI). DWI arrests happen on a regular basis all over Texas and Collin County is no different. Some of the most common places in the county that people may be coming from when arrested for DWI include The Celt Irish Pub, The Garage, The Yard, and 19 Degrees. The Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy also represents individuals who were arrested for DWI after leaving private residences.

DWI is certainly not the only criminal offense allegedly committed in Collin County. Drugs and narcotics charges are also frequent, as the Collin County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies routinely arrest many drug offenders. The Special Crimes Unit of the Sheriff’s Office investigates narcotic activity and also supplements local, state, and federal law enforcement with major crimes while working with the cooperation of DEA Task Forces and has officers assigned to two such units. The Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy handles many different kinds of drug cases.

Family violence is another common criminal offense in Collin County, as many people are arrested as the result of domestic disputes. Texas Family Code § 71.003 establishes that the term family includes individuals related by consanguinity (one is a descendant of the other or they share a common ancestor) or affinity (if two individuals are married to each other or the spouse of one of the individuals is related by consanguinity to the other individual), individuals who are former spouses of each other, individuals who are the parents of the same child, without regard to marriage, and a foster child and foster parent, without regard to whether those individuals reside together. Under Texas Family Code § 71.005, the term household means a unit composed of persons living together in the same dwelling, without regard to whether they are related to each other. Under Texas Family Code § 71.006, a member of a household includes a person who previously lived in a household. The Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy assists clients with all kinds of domestic violence charges.
