What To Do After Being Arrested Top 10 DWI Mistakes What Happens After a DWI Arrest?

AA and Outpatient Alcohol and Drug Treatment

Individuals who are convicted of DWI in the state of Texas are required to receive a drug/alcohol evaluation as one of the conditions of their probation or community supervision, in order to determine the probability of them committing multiple DWI offenses. These evaluations are also used to uncover and disclose whether or not the individual has a problem with drug or alcohol abuse.

If you are a first time DWI offender, you will be required to attend and complete an approved DWI education class. If your evaluation showed you have a drug or alcohol problem, or you have had multiple DWI convictions, then you also be required to attend AA or an outpatient alcohol and drug treatment program available through the probation department. Contact a Houston DWI attorney at my firm immediately if you have any questions about your court-ordered treatment. My staff and I are very familiar with all aspects of DWI cases and we will be able to answer your questions, and help you either complete your requirements or challenge any apparent discrepancies or injustices.

For the last 15 years I have specialized in DWI law and in representing individuals, from all walks of life, who were caught in the criminal justice system on charges of driving while intoxicated. I understand how emotional and frightening a DWI arrest or conviction can be, which is why my team and I work diligently to provide clients with the aggressive representation they deserve. No matter the evidence you feel is stacked against you, I will take the time to thoroughly review your case, analyze all evidence and reports, and based on my extensive knowledge and experience, advise you on how best to proceed.
