Penalties for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), commonly referred to as drunk driving, in the City of Fort Worth are severe. DWI and DUI (Driving Under the Influence) are serious traffic convictions to have on your driving record, and can result in arrest, costly State Surcharges and driver's license suspension. If you have been caught drinking and driving, and are worried about the ensuing penalties, consider contacting the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno. Our criminal defense attorneys have been defending clients up against DWI and DUI charges in Fort Worth for over 20 years, and know what it takes to get warrants lifted, bonds posted and jail release secured.

Did you fail or refuse to be administered a breath test in Fort Worth, after being suspected of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) by a police officer who pulled you over? If so, an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) may be in order for you. ALR suspension resulting from Fort Worth DWI is serious, but Jack Byno & Associates may be able to defend against your DL suspension in court. Our defense attorneys may be hired to dispute the suspension of your driver's license, or seek a temporary driver's license on your behalf. This temporary license is known as an Occupational Driver's License (ODL) and is sometimes referred to as an Essential Need License. If granted, it would allow you to drive yourself legally to work and other locations necessary to day-to-day life.
Do you have a previous Driving While Intoxicated conviction on your driving record? You should be aware that if you are charged again with DWI, you may be facing a DL suspension of up to two years. In the case that this is your first Fort Worth DWI conviction, you may not have to worry about DL suspension. Even so, because of the severity of a DWI conviction, it may be in your best interest to get in touch with our law firm. Since 1994, our criminal defense attorneys have defended against Fort Worth DWI suspension in the County Criminal Court, and therefore may be retained to take on your DL suspension. For more information, please complete our DL Suspension Contact Form.
Fort Worth DWI and DUI convictions should be avoided at all costs, as penalties associated with them can include incarceration, hefty auto insurance premiums, and State Surcharges of up to $1,000 for three years. Drivers who do not pay their State Surcharges before they are due may face arrest and DL suspension. Even if you have been charged with DWI in Fort Worth, Jack Byno & Associates may be able to successfully defend against any consequences that would otherwise result.
Driving Under the Influence (DUI) is a less serious charge than Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), and may be the result of getting behind the wheel in Fort Worth with high levels of alcohol in your system. You may also be charged with DUI if you drink and drive while under the legal drinking age. While penalties for DUI may not necessarily be as far-reaching as those for DWI, you may still benefit from legal representation offered by the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno. We have been defending against DUI charges in court for more than 20 years and may be able to ease the penalties that can result from your Fort Worth DUI charge.
Depending upon whether or not you are up against your first Fort Worth DWI conviction, the consequences you may face can vary. Other factors that must be considered in the Criminal Court during the penalty phase include whether or not you caused a wreck while driving drunk, if any fatalities resulted and whether you had open containers in your vehicle at the time of your DWI conviction. Do you have questions or concerns about how the criminal defense attorneys at Jack Byno & Associates may be able to defend against your Fort Worth DWI, and any consequences that may follow?
