Carrollton DWI Defense Lawyer

Plano Texas DWI Drunk Driving Attorney

Important Steps After a DWI Arrest

If you failed a field sobriety test or breathalyzer test and have been arrested for drunk driving, taking the following steps can be critical in your DWI defense:

1. Request your ALR (Administrative License Revocation) hearing.

You only have 15 days to request your invaluable administrative hearing after you were arrested. Learn more about ALR hearings. Check out our ALR information page and All-Important ALR information page.

2. Write a statement.

The police wrote a report to convict you. So, you should write a report to help Mrs. Tucker defend you.

Your report should be a detailed statement about what happened. Begin with the night before your arrest and detail all events leading up to your arrest. List any witnesses that could help you. Include their contact information and, if possible, have them draft a brief statement of what they would say if called to testify.

3. Hire Mrs. Tucker.

If law enforcement has collected a blood sample to assess your BAC levels, the above defense strategy may not be appropriate. Therefore, if you have failed a blood test, you should contact Mrs. Tucker to discuss your options and develop your DWI defense strategy.

Why is Mrs. Tucker so successful in defending DWIs?

Her answer ... "Preparation. It starts from the minute the client hires me until the trial actually begins."

In preparation for defending your DWI, Mrs. Tucker will obtain copies of the police reports, inventory logs, driving records, and information from the jail booking. Of course, this also includes getting a copy of your DWI tape.

Essentially, she recreates the same file that the District Attorney's Office has and then some.

It is that last "and then some" that sets her apart. This includes requesting your officer's training records, personnel file, and internal affairs file. It also includes securing the presence of the officer that arrested you at the ALR hearing for a grueling cross examination that will give you a tremendous advantage at trial.

Her firm has many expert witnesses should that need arise in defending you, including one who is a former police officer with experience in field sobriety testing.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE — Mrs. Tucker has received field sobriety training as well. She holds a NHTSA/IACP Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Certificate (the same training police officers receive) and has attended numerous courses on the breath testing machine (also referred to as a breathalyzer or intoxilyzer).

Kimberly Griffin Tucker's philosophy on DWIs:

If you plead, you lose. A plea means the State convicted you by your own admission. If this is your first DWI, you have little to lose by trying your case! I believe that many people plead their DWI because they are afraid of the unknown. I understand this and so we will discuss your fears and concerns at length so that you have a comfort level with whatever decision you make. Learn more about the hidden cost of a DWI and a DWI conviction.
