Penalties for a DWI in Texas
If this is your first offense, these are the penalties you may be facing:

Challenging the Accuracy of Breathalyzer Tests and Alcohol Blood Tests
If breathalyzer or blood test showed results of a BAC of .08 or higher, your attorney may still be able to help you by challenging the accuracy of these chemical tests. Law enforcement often administer such tests improperly, or the labs may not calibrate the breathalyzers according to protocol.
Attorney John Eastland stays on the cutting edge of the “science” behind chemical tests. In addition, he knows that other factors, such as pre-existing medical conditions or what you had for dinner that day, may affect the accuracy of breath and blood alcohol tests. He can use this knowledge to reduce or overturn the charges against you.
Challenging Field Sobriety Tests
John Eastland is a certified standardized field sobriety test (SFST) practitioner, and has received training with the following tests:
- Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus
- One Leg Stand
- Walk and Turn
Thus, he knows that SFSTs are not always reliable. He can use that knowledge to challenge the DWI charges you are facing.
