  • Their future is in jeopardy
  • Their family life is going to suffer
  • Their career may be over

  • They may be labeled a criminal

Driving while intoxicated is one of the most commonly committed crimes in Texas. It can also be one of the most complex cases to properly defend. DWI cases involve not only constitutional issues surrounding law enforcement stopping your vehicle, but also 4th Amendment issues surrounding the search of your vehicle, and the taking of a breath or blood sample. The proper defense of a DWI case necessitates not only the evaluation and understanding of the Constitutional issues surrounding the stop of your vehicle, but also the proper administration of the Standardized Field Sobriety tests per NHTSA standards, as well as the collection and testing of blood and breath samples by law enforcement.

A DWI charge can result in tough penalties such as incarceration, or probation, loss of driving privileges, as well as the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock system on your vehicle. In addition, your insurance rates can increase, and you might be disqualified for some jobs.

With such aggressive prosecution, it is a good choice to enlist the help of a DWI attorney in Henderson, TX. Our experienced professionals will help you understand:

Drug crimes and the potential punishment in an individual case can vary significantly based on the type and amount of drug or controlled substance alleged to be involved. Additionally, whether it is a possession case, or a delivery can affect the seriousness of the charge and the potential punishment in the case. Also, the criminal history or lack thereof is also very important.

It is also very important to look closely at and develop the reason why an individual may have had the drug on them in the first place. One aspect of our firm is that we want to get to know our clients as people. We want to know as much about them and their life as we possibly can. Many times, when people are in possession of drugs, it is because they have some other area in their life that needs to be addressed. Whether the individual is dealing with a past trauma, abuse, anxiety, depression or a mental illness, there is often a reason behind them finding themselves in this situation other than a disregard for the law.

It is also a must that you look at all the Constitutional aspects of the law that are in play in these types of cases, such a reasonable suspicion to stop, and probable cause to search. Why did the police stop you, and how did they find the drugs?

Your lawyer should look closely at the chain of custody on the evidence and the testing protocol used to test the substance.

You should always hire the best lawyer you can afford. The lawyer’s experience in the investigation and litigation of these types of cases is a crucial consideration. 

From a misdemeanor drug charge to a felony charge, you need a criminal defense attorney who knows the law and has extensive experience with cases like yours.

If you're facing any type of drug crime charges, contact the Law Office of Matt Bingham for help. He will discuss your case with you and help you navigate your case and the criminal justice system moving forward. MORE ON DRUG LAW
