Ellis County DWI Lawyers

Arrested for DWI? Act Fast!

If you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI), you must seek legal counsel from a skilled Ellis County DWI lawyer as soon as possible. Upon your arrest and a failed or refused breath or blood test, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will initiate an immediate hold or suspension of your driver's license.

You have only 15 days to request a hearing to challenge the suspension of your driver's license.

Failing to request your Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing could result in immediate license suspension and lasting consequences on your permanent record. At Robin McCarty & Associates, we provide experienced representation not only in court but at our clients’ ALR hearings. We know how to work with the DMV and know what it takes to challenge DWI charges in criminal court. Led by an attorney who is a former police officer and former prosecutor, we know the ins and outs of these complex charges and are prepared to put our knowledge to work for you.

For a free DWI case evaluation, call (972) 843-7456. We help drivers across Ellis County, Tarrant County, and Dallas County.

Strong DWI Defense Strategies from a Former Police Officer

Chapter 49 of the Texas Penal Code defines intoxication as lacking the normal use of your physical and/or mental faculties as a result of drugs/and or alcohol. Though there are a number of ways that a law enforcement officer may attempt to determine if you have drugs or alcohol in your system, the mishandling of these tests are common. We meticulously review the manner in which field sobriety tests, breath tests, blood tests, or urine tests are conducted to determine if our clients’ rights have been infringed upon.

With experience on the “other side” of DWI arrests and criminal proceedings, Attorney McCarty is well aware of the common strategies that law enforcement officials and prosecuting attorneys use to pursue maximum penalties. Prosecutors may have seemingly endless access to government resources, but our team knows how to challenge, dismantle, and question a case from various angles all while creating an impenetrable rebuttal for our clients’ defense.

Ellis County DWI attorney Robin McCarty is particularly adept at dissecting the opposition's case, and may use such strategies as:

  • Determining if a violation of search and seizure resulted in an erroneous arrest
  • Determining if your rights were violated at a sobriety checkpoint
  • Using relentless cross-examination to find weaknesses in testimony from the arresting officer or other witnesses brought about by the prosecution
  • Seeking reduced charges, such as reckless driving or obstruction of highway
  • Seeking case dismissal by filing a motion to suppress illegitimate evidence
