Kerrville DWI Defense Attorney
Aggressive Defense in Drunk Driving Cases
If you have been arrested for or charged with drinking and driving in Texas, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your constitutional rights. The consequences of a conviction can be devastating. In addition to fines and penalties including jail time, you could lose your right to drive for extended periods of time and put your job at risk or jeopardize your educational opportunities. You want an aggressive and knowledgeable attorney to defend you.
At the Law Office of Harold Danford, we have handled criminal matters for more than 19 years. A former prosecutor, attorney Danford understands both sides of a DWI case and knows the strategies and tactics the state employs in these matters. He is the only former director of the Texas Department of Public Safety’s DWI / ALR program who is now a DWI defense lawyer. We offer extensive trial experience to DWI defendants — attorney Danford has personally tried hundreds of DWI cases. Because of our knowledge, experience and reputation for success, attorney Danford is known by clients and colleagues alike as ”the DWI guy”.
Our DWI Defense Practice
We represent DWI defendants at all stages of the process, from the ALR hearing to determine the status of your driving rights to the criminal proceeding and to trial. When you hire us to protect your constitutional rights, we will investigate all the facts and circumstances of your arrest, starting with a review of whether law enforcement officers had reasonable suspicion to pull you over. We will also verify that you were properly advised of your rights after you were taken into custody.
We will carefully review the evidence to determine whether field sobriety, blood alcohol tests and breathe alcohol tests were correctly administered. Attorney Danford is a certified practitioner of the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. If we find any violation of your rights, we will immediately seek the exclusion of tainted evidence and the dismissal of charges, if appropriate.
We Handle DWI with Child Passenger Charges
If you are charged with drunk driving while there was a child under the age of 15 in your car, the penalties for conviction become far more substantial. Regardless of whether it is your first offense, the charge is automatically a felony and may be punishable by up to two years in jail and/or $10,000 in fines.
We will take the same aggressive approach if you have been charged with this crime.
