If you have been charged with driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated (DUI/DWI) in Texas, you are facing both criminal penalties and administrative driver's license penalties. The first 15 days after your arrest are critical if you want to challenge the driver's license suspension.
At Phil Baker P.C., we defend people against all DUI-related charges as well as the license suspension. We understand the serious consequences of a conviction. It can affect your job, your criminal record, and your auto insurance rates. If you have a professional license, a DUI/DWI conviction may cause problems with your career.

The penalties for DUI/DWI are harsh, even if it is just a first offense and especially if you are a college student. Each case is different, but if you are convicted, you could face jail time, alcohol assessment and treatment, a fine of up to $2,000, and a driver's license suspension of 90 days.
Within 15 days of your arrest, you must request an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing with the Texas Department of Public Safety. If you miss this deadline, your license will be automatically suspended. You may also be denied the chance to apply for an occupational license during the suspension.
La Grange DUI defense lawyer Phil Baker has been practicing since 1995. He has the experience to protect your driving privileges at the ALR hearing.
We will investigate the case and examine the evidence for admissibility. In some cases, we can challenge the breath and blood test results. When law enforcement does not follow proper police procedure, our attorney may be able to argue for the suppression of evidence or the dismissal of the charges.
