Houston Criminal Lawyer
experienced, aggressive representation
A fun evening out with friends or family can quickly turn into a nightmare if you are stopped by law enforcement and charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). People from all walks of life can end up with a DWI after a simple lapse in judgment. Unfortunately, the effects of a DWI can extend long past any period of probation or jail time. Shahin Zamir can help you during these times of turmoil.
While many states refer to their primary impaired driving law as Driving Under the Influence (DUI), the terms DUI and DWI are not interchangeable under Texas law. A Texas DWI refers to an arrest where an officer determines that a person has consumed alcohol or drugs to the extent that they are a less than safe driver. A Texas DUI is a charge which most often applies to drivers who are under the age of 21 and have consumed any amount of alcohol, whether or not they are impaired.
