Texas DWI Defense

Many of the criminal cases we handle stem from a charge of driving under the influence (DWI). These are very serious charges that can result in jail time, large fines, the suspension of your driver's license and a permanent criminal record if you are convicted. Our firm aggressively pursues a resolution to the case, whether that is seeking the dismissal of the charges, a reduction in charges or fighting against a conviction at trial.

Other Criminal Defense Matters

In addition to DWI defense, Avera can assist you with other criminal charges. We confidently represent clients in a wide range of felony and misdemeanor matters, including:

  • Drug possession and other drug charges
  • Theft and shoplifting
  • Assault and battery
  • Vandalism
  • Juvenile defense and college student crimes

Regardless of the charge, the same principals apply to other criminal cases as they do in a DWI arrest. The prosecutor must prove the officer had a reasonable suspicion to stop you and then also must prove there was probable cause to make the arrest. Finally the prosecutor must prove at trial that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
