You Face Two Legal Problems, Not One

A DWI arrest starts two legal proceedings against you — a criminal proceeding on the charge itself and an administrative proceeding that can lead to the suspension of your driver’s license. The Sanchez Law Firm, L.L.C., will provide you with aggressive legal representation in both proceedings.

Following an arrest for DWI / DUI, you have 15 days in which to request a hearing to challenge the suspension of your license. Walter M. Sanchez can represent you at this hearing to try to prevent a suspended license. He can also use the driver’s license suspension hearing to establish facts that could prove helpful in the defense of the criminal charge.

Successful DWI Defense Strategies

Attorney Walter M. Sanchez and his associates will review every aspect of your case to determine if the means for a successful defense of the criminal charge exists. Police can make mistakes during a motor vehicle stop, an arrest or during the investigation.

At the station, the officer may have improperly conducted the Breathalyzer test or the machine may have been improperly maintained or calibrated. There may be biological reasons why your blood alcohol tests came in at the level they did. These and a number of other factors may provide the key for a successful defense. If the means for a successful defense exists in your case, the criminal defense attorneys of The Sanchez Law Firm, L.L.C. will find it.

Choosing The Right Strategy For You

After Mr. Sanchez has analyzed all of the facts in your case, he will discuss your legal options with you. If possible, he will seek to obtain a dismissal of the charge, a reduction to a lesser charge or a not-guilty verdict at trial. In other cases, it may make sense to seek to minimize the penalties you face so that you can put your life back in order as quickly as possible.

Whatever strategy you choose, The Sanchez Law Firm, L.L.C. will work energetically to present your options to you and obtain the best outcome possible.
