How Long Will Fighting a DWI Case Take?

During our experience as criminal defense & DWI lawyers we’ve found that each case tends to take on it’s own life. Due to the large number of differentiating factors in each case, each circumstance, and each defendant, giving an accurate estimate can prove to be impossible at best, and misleading at worst.

However, we can give you a general idea of how long it will take to fight your Houston DWI charge. In Harris County, the most densely populated county in Texas by a vast margin, it could take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years to completely reach a conclusion for your case, while smaller counties like Chambers County, Brazoria County, or Galveston County can finalize a case in half the time.

To get the best idea of how long it’ll take to come to a conclusion on your case you should contact a qualified criminal defense lawyer that you can trust. DWI offenses are serious. Be serious about it.

Is Beating a DWI Charge Possible in Harris County?

In short, absolutely.

At The Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates (for example), the requirements of the legal team, from founder Houston DWI Lawyer Tad A. Nelson on up to all of the associate attorneys, are to remain on the cutting edge of craft as forensic DWI defense attorneys.

Their dedication to being the best lawyers we can be has led to a record of success in court for our clients, the “accused”, and a respectable reputation from the State of Texas, Judges, and Prosecutors alike.

They’ve been more than instrumental in causing thousands of cases to be dismissed and thrown out, reduced from felony to misdemeanor status, or simply beat with good lawyering.

Good lawyering means scrutinizing police reports to find the best way to beat the Houston DWI charge, ensuring perfect procedural policy on the part of law enforcement, and spotting the mistakes that are almost always waiting to be found.

In addition, we’ll also make sure the equipment used against you by law enforcement for blood, breath, and/or urine testing, was fit to be in use in the first place. The technicians who maintain the device, certify the device, and the officer that uses the device, will need to be vetted. The device should also meet all laboratory specifications.

The legal team around Tad Nelson is guaranteed to investigate every and all possible angles when fighting for defendants who are facing the crushing weight of the criminal justice system in Texas. We cut no corners.
