DWI Defense in Hays County, Texas

Hays County is served by such major roadways as Interstate 35, U.S. Route 290, Texas State Highway 21, and Texas State Highway 80, but alleged offenders are frequently arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI, also referred to as driving under the influence or DUI) offenses on many other smaller local roads. Whether a person was stopped on Hopkins Street in San Marcos, Center Street in Kyle, or Main Street in Buda, it is important to remember that an arrest for alleged drunk driving is not the same as a conviction.

Goldstein & Orr can review the specific circumstances of your arrest involved an unlawful stop or any police error such as the administration of field sobriety tests or chemical tests. In addition to helping people facing DWI charges for the first time or alleged repeat offenses, our attorneys also represent alleged offenders charged with drunk driving-related offenses such as intoxication assault and intoxication manslaughter.
