First Offense DWI Over 20 Years of Result-Oriented Criminal Defense 

Montgomery County Multiple DWI Lawyer

First Offense DWI Charges in Montgomery County, Texas

If this is your first DWI offense, and your first arrest, it is very possible that your attorney may be able to secure community service or another minor penalty in lieu of jail time. Additionally, having no prior convictions will work in your favor in regards to your attorney’s ability to have charges dropped or to secure an acquittal on your behalf. First offense DWI charges, however, are still serious and may result in jail time if you do not have proper representation and a strong defense built on your behalf. Montgomery County DWI defense lawyer Doug Atkinson is experienced in dealing with clients who have received their first DWI charge. Although leniency is more likely in these instances, attorney Atkinson will still fight aggressively to defend your rights, driving privileges and freedom. This includes representation throughout the criminal court process as well as at ALR hearings.
