Dallas DWI of Drugs Defense Lawyers
Experienced Legal Representation throughout Fort Worth, McKinney, Denton & Austin
In Texas, DWI now encompasses more than just alcohol-impaired driving. Under Section 49.01 of the Texas Penal Code, intoxicants can also include “a controlled substance, drugs, dangerous drugs, a combination of two or more of these substances, or any other substance into the body.” This makes operating a vehicle while impaired from any drug illegal in the state, carrying the same penalties as an alcohol-related DWI.
If you were pulled over for DWI, trying to handle such an offense on your own is a bad idea. At Hamilton Grant PC, our firm combines the superior personal service of a small firm with the resources and results of a large one. Our legal team includes an award-winning trial lawyer/scientist who has trained on DWI and has achieved superb results for North Texans for more than 25 years.
