In some cases, we can challenge the traffic stop as unsupported by a reasonable suspicion of wrongdoing or challenge the arrest for lack of probable cause. More often, we'll use the evidence developed in your administrative driver's license (ALR) hearing to spot inconsistencies between different versions of the arresting officer's story.

We can sometimes also use the arresting officer's video to disprove the details of a field sobriety test or observational report. These approaches together can expand a limited range for plea negotiations or deferred adjudication leading to eventual dismissal.

If you're charged with felony DUI/DWI based on a repeat offense, a serious or fatal accident, or the presence of a child in the car, Larry McDougal can advise you about the best ways to protect you from the serious risks of a conviction. His trial defense experience can help you before a jury, but it often makes the best sense, particularly with repeat DWIs and felony level charges, to use the leverage developed through sound trial preparation to your advantage in plea negotiations.

Whether your DWI charge is a felony or a misdemeanor, the choice between a plea offer and a trial defense is yours to make. At the same time, you're entitled to expect your DWI defense lawyer to provide you with sound advice while working toward improving the quality of your choices.
