Getting arrested for a DWI can be a scary moment for anyone. William Calderon has handled hundreds of DWI cases and these are what we believe to be the most important things to do after you or a loved one has been arrested for a DWI in Texas.
1. Say nothing. Most police cars in Texas have video cameras that monitor the backseat and have audio recording that would be used against you in trial.
2. Get out of jail. Contacting a bondsman quickly after an arrest can make the booking out of jail after an arrest process much easier.
2. Take note of who was there. Any passengers in the car, any witnesses, and get their names. 3. Hire an experienced attorney you can trust as soon as possible. Under Texas law, a person only has 15 days to have an attorney fight for their license.
4. Do not talk to anyone about your case. Do not post on social media about your arrest. The only person that should know about your arrest are you and your attorney.
The best thing you can do is to contact an attorney as quickly as possible. We have found that the quicker an attorney is in charge of the case the better the outcome. Contact our office today for a free consultation.
