First Time DWI Attorney

Don’t Let a Single Mistake Ruin Your Future

If you’ve been arrested for a first-time DWI, you understand what a frightening and stressful experience this can be. You may not know where to turn, and you’re likely considering just pleading guilty to put the whole situation behind you. Even a first-time DWI conviction, however, can impact your life for years to come.

I am Michael L. King, and I am an aggressive Lubbock DWI defense attorney who understands what you are going through. More importantly, I understand how to effectively fight the charges against you. When you retain my firm, I will be the fearless and dedicated advocate you need in your corner during this trying time.

A DWI arrest does NOT have to equal a conviction – take control of your defense by calling (806) 370-7800 today.

The Penalties For a First-Time Conviction

Many people make the mistake of thinking that the judge or prosecutor will “go easy” on them if they simply plead guilty – after all, it’s your first mistake! In reality, Texas is extremely harsh on DWI offenders, and institutes both criminal and administrative consequences for even first-time convictions.

These penalties include, but are not limited to:

  • Between 3 to 180 days in jail
  • Fines of up to $2000
  • $1000 annual surcharges for 3 years after conviction
  • Driver’s license suspension between 90-180 days

These are just some of the consequences for a standard DWI conviction – if you have a minor aged 15 or younger in the car at the time of your arrest, the penalties will be exponentially more severe. However, a conviction is not guaranteed – I know the faults and flaws of breathalyzer tests, field sobriety tests, and other evidence the prosecution may try to use against you.
