Formulating Strategies Tailored to You
When you retain our services, you aren’t just a case number. Your case is as important to us as it is to you. We want to know more than just the facts and circumstances of your case and your legal expectations; we also want to know about you as an individual and what you hope to personally achieve.
Emory DWI lawyer John Eastland wants to help you reach your legal and personal goals. After meeting you and discussing the details of your case, Mr. Eastland can strategize and implement a feasible defense plan to increase your opportunities to avoid a conviction and the negative effects that stemmed from your arrest. We understand how harsh Texas can be on people charged with a crime. Our goal is to prevent those penalties from impacting your future.
Whether its your first DWI/DUI charge or not, there are severe consequences if you are found guilty of DWI/DUI. Court imposed penalties may include:
- Prison time
- Revocation or suspension of your driver’s license
- Yearly surcharge to retain your driver’s license
- DWI intervention or education programs
When considering your punishment, the court will consider your:
- BAC level, if you consumed alcohol
- License type
- Prior DWI/DUI offenses
- Accident resulting personal injuries or fatalities, if any
- Accident resulting in property damage, if any
- Whether you had a passenger under the age of 15
Convictions also have far-reaching and long-lasting ramifications to your professional and personal life, including loss of employment, professional license, and personal relationships. An experienced Emory DWI lawyer who understands Texas DWI law can vigorously advocate for your rights.
Challenging Your Chemical Test Results
If you took a chemical test — such as a breathalyzer or blood alcohol test — before or during your arrest, your Emory DWI lawyer can challenge the validity of the results. If the test was improperly administered, or, in the case of the breathalyzer, the test was inaccurately calibrated, then the results are invalid.
We at John Eastland, Attorney at Law, P.C., are current on the science of the chemical tests. By getting to know you and asking you specific questions, we can determine whether your health conditions could negatively impact the results of the chemical tests. We can then effectively argue to reduce or dismiss your charges.
