A Strong Defense When Charged With Abusing Controlled Substances

Texas is not a forgiving state when it comes to the abuse of alcohol and other controlled substances. Many drug crimes can bring felony charges, as can certain DWI charges.

The Law offices of Mari Garza and Lynn Peach, PLLC, will analyze the details of your case and design a legal strategy based on your unique needs.

Manage The Consequences After A Drunk Driving Charge

The charge of driving while intoxicated can often come unexpectedly — many drivers believe they are under the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) limit when in fact they have crossed this legally significant threshold. Fortunately, Texas law recognizes the first DWI offenses as misdemeanors, so it is possible to learn from an innocent mistake without disproportionate consequences. And even when someone has knowingly operated a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the consequences should be proportionate to the offense.

During a traffic stop, law enforcement officers have the discretion to opt for either a Breathalyzer test or a blood test. Our state also observes designated “no refusal” weekends, when it is even easier than usual for an officer to secure a warrant to conduct a blood test if a Breathalyzer test is refused. In either case, we will conduct research to confirm that these tests were administered properly, and that the traffic stop was justified in the first place. When an officer violates procedures, this is a powerful tool that can be used to strengthen your defense and reduce the impact of the charges against you.
