Houston Felony DWI Attorney

Repeat DWI Offenders May Face Felony Charges

There is little sympathy in the criminal justice system for repeat DWI offenders. In fact, if you have a previous drunk driving conviction on your record, the police and prosecution will likely try to inflict the harshest possible penalties upon you. These serious charges call for the counsel of an aggressive, intelligent criminal defense lawyer. Today, you have the opportunity to put that lawyer on your side.

Houston DWI attorney Jed Silverman has been representing clients in Harris County and across Texas for more than 20 years. Having handled more than 3,000 cases and as a certified instructor in field sobriety tests, blood tests and breath tests, he is uniquely qualified to represent the interests of local and out-of-state drivers who are facing felony DWI charges. Repeat offenders can take solace in the knowledge that Mr. Silverman and the rest of the team at our firm will fight tirelessly in these cases to see the best outcome possible.

Texas Penalties for Second and Third DWI Convictions

A second DWI offense is a Class B misdemeanor under Texas Penal Code, and according to the Texas Department of Transportation, the following penalties may be imposed:

  • $4,000 fine
  • 180-day to 2-year driver's license suspension
  • 30 to 365 days in jail

A third DWI offense is a third-degree felony, and the penalties may include:

  • $10,000 fine
  • 180-day to 2-year driver's license suspension
  • 2-10 years in the state penitentiary

We at the Law Offices of Jed Silverman are adept at helping people with drunk driving convictions on their record avoid the harsh consequences of additional DWI convictions. We thoroughly examine the judgments from prior convictions and police records to challenge their validity. We also look at all aspects of the current DWI charge to determine if there were errors in police procedure or problems with the breath test or field sobriety test.
