Blood and Breath Tests

If you are suspected of DWI, the officer will request that you take a blood or breath test. It is important to understand that there are serious consequences for refusing to submit to a breath or blood test. Refusal to take one of these tests will result in a driver's license suspension for a period of 180 days for a first offense. You only have 15 days to request a hearing to challenge your driver's license suspension. At Mandy Miller Legal, PLLC, I have the knowledge and experience necessary to help you through your case.

In the state of Texas, a DWI conviction can dramatically impact the remainder of your life. One new law that may have a substantial impact on your case stems from the decision made in Missouri v. McNeely. As a result of this court case, in driving while intoxicated investigations, the natural dissipation of alcohol found in the driver's blood does not automatically necessitate a blood test without a warrant. In many cases, the law enforcement officer must first obtain a warrant in order to obtain your blood sample if you do not consent. If you refused to take a breath or blood test, my firm may be able to use this new law in your favor.

DWI vs. DUI in the Houston Area

Have you been charged with the crime of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Texas? It is important to understand the difference between these two offenses. DUI is an offense that is charged against minor drivers.

The terminology "under the influence" is used to describe any detectable amount of alcohol in a person under the age of 21. It is a Class C misdemeanor that is punishable by a driver's license suspension and a $500 fine. DWI is charged against both minors and adults. DWI charges are filed if you have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or are under the influence of drugs.
