Defending Intoxication-Oriented Cases in Denton County Texas

Plano DWI Attorney Serving Collin, Dallas and Denton Counties 

  • DWI (Driving While Intoxicated)
  • BWI (Boating While Intoxicated)
  • DUI (Driving Under the Influence - Under 21 Years of Age)
  • Public Intoxication
  • Minor in Possession & Minor in Consumption
  • Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor

These offenses can be very complicated. The best advice anyone could give if you have been arrested for DWI is to contact a good criminal defense attorney immediately because there are time sensitive issues and many pitfalls to be avoided.

Mrs. Tucker is a highly regarded DWI trial lawyer in Texas - in fact, she won every DWI case that went to trial in Denton County in 2006.

DWI Trainings

Mrs. Tucker has received the following trainings to aid her in defending DWI cases:

  • NHTSA/IACP Standarized Field Sobriety Testing Refresher Training (This is the same training program police officers receive)
  • Intoxilyzer 5000

What is the Range of Punishment on a DWI?

1. Criminal Penalty

  • A DWI 1st is a class B misdemeanor and carries a range of punishment of up to a 180 days in the county jail and/or a fine of up to $2,000.00.
  • A DWI 2nd is a class A misdemeanor and carries a range of punishment of up to a 365 days in the county jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000.00.
  • A DWI 3rd is a third degree felony and carries the possibility of time in the penitentiary.
  • Is probation a possibility or will I have to go to jail? - Usually, it is a possibility...but be warned. Probation (now called "community supervision") can be time consuming and expensive.

2. Civil Penalty

3. Two cases for the price of one.

The Key to a Good Defense:

  • Call Kimberly Tucker at 972-492-ATTY (2889) in the metro to schedule a consultation. Prior to coming in for your first consult, complete the Prospective Client Info - DWIs document.
  • I am certified in the same Field Sobriety Testing as the cops are -and defend many breath test cases with the help of my training on the Intoxilyzer 500.
  • The police wrote a report to convict you & so you should write one to help me! Start with writing a detailed statement about what happened to you (begin with the night before your arrest and detail all events leading up to your arrest) as soon as possible. List any witnesses that could help you. Get their contact information and have them draft a brief statement.
  • Request your ALR hearing IMMEDIATELY. This is a time sensitive hearing that provides invaluable assistance to me when I am defending a DWI . want to know more? Go to my link on THE ALL-IMPORTANT ALR to find out more then request your ALR.
  • After I have gathered all information on your case from the ALR and criminal discovery process, including getting a copy of your DWI videotape, we will schedule a consult to discuss final disposition - that is where we will decide whether you want to plead go to trial.

My philosophy on DWIs:

  • If you plead, you lost! By allowing the State to simply CONVICT you. 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.

DUIs, Public Intoxication, and Minor in Possession & Minor in Consumption of Alcohol or Tobacco

  • DUI is a separate offense from DWI, but is similar in many ways. Thus it is included on this page.
  • These are all class "C" offenses & if handled timely and appropriately may afford you the ability to expunge these matters in the future so it is like they NEVER HAPPENED!!! As one client put it...it's like getting a second chance! And it is!!!!!!! So don't blow these off because you think they are unimportant...if they become convictions on your record, they will create a criminal history that speaks volumes about you and can be enhanced down the road which can carry JAIL TIME!

If you are not a citizen of the United States, please be sure to let Mrs. Tucker's office know!
