Charged with a DWI in Round Rock?

We understand the stress that comes after a DWI arrest can be overwhelming.

If you are accused of driving a vehicle with a blood alcohol content over .08%, you need an attorney to help you navigate the system.

The government of Texas and the Williamson County court system doesn’t tend to go easy on people convicted of DWI, but Michael & Associates is here to help.

The Penalties for DWI Can Be Severe

It's easy to make the mistake that just because DWI is a common offense that the penalties aren't severe.  

You would be wrong.

The penalties are as follows:

First Offense: 

  • Up to a $2000 fine
  • 3 to 180 days in jail
  • Losing your license for a year

Second Offense:

  • Up to a $2000 fine
  • From 30 to 365 days in jail
  • Losing your license for two years

Third+ Offense:

  • Up to a $10,000 fine
  • From 2 to 10 years in prison
  • Losing your license for two years
  • A permanent felony conviction

That's not counting any enhancements for something like child endangerment or property damage.

Don't Make a Mistake That Can Last a Lifetime

It's not just the criminal penalties that you have to worry about. A DWI will change your insurance rate, make it harder to find a job, and you can have your driver's license revoked.  

This is a serious situation, and it calls for a serious defense.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Michael & Associates

Michael & Associates has a couple of things that set us apart: our white glove treatment, and always pushing for the best outcome.

So many lawyers charge less and promise the world.  Then, when you need them most, they disappear.  Do lawyers like that give the best possible defense?  Usually not, since they look for the easiest path to closing your case.  To them, cases exist solely to close them.

At Michael & Associates, we limit the number of cases we have each week, so we can give each client our famous undivided attention.

At our firm you get Ben Michael's personal cell phone, and he is available to you at any time.  Other firms?  You're lucky if the secretary answers the phone and you get a call back that same week.

We want to ensure you are comfortable with the entire process.  We understand the stress you are feeling, and our only goal is to get this weight off your shoulders. We do that by giving you the best defense.

Michael & Associates accepts most cases, and we focus in defending our clients charged with:

  • DUI / DWI
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • Assault & Battery
  • Family Violence
  • Domestic Abuse

  • Traffic Law
  • Family Law
  • Immigration Law
  • Civil Law

We're licensed to defend clients anywhere in the great state of Texas.  We are accepting new clients anywhere between San Antonio and Austin.

Driving While Intoxicated in Round Rock

In Round Rock, Williamson County, and anywhere else in Texas, anyone with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher can be arrested for DWI. That measurement of alcohol in your bloodstream is the line between release and arrest.

Depending on several key factors, you might mistakenly have a BAC higher than you thought you would. Things such as the amount of time since your last drink and the amount of alcohol in the drink will affect your BAC. Your sex, height, and weight also play a role.

In Round Rock, the penalties vary based on how many offenses you have had.

1st Offense: 

  • Up to a $2000 fine
  • 3 to 180 days in jail
  • Loss of your license for a year

2nd Offense:

  • Up to a $2000 fine
  • From a month to a year in jail
  • Loss of your license for two years

3rd+ Offense:

  • Up to a $10,000 fine
  • From 2 to 10 years in prison
  • Losing your license for 2 years
  • A permanent felony conviction

Additional child endangerment enhancements will apply if there was a child passenger:

  • Increased fines up to $10,000
  • as much as two years in jail
  • Suspension of your driver's license for six more months

Never run from an officer. It will only increase the penalties you face.

Always be calm, and never make sudden movements. Comply with the officer's request for your documents. Tell the officer you are reaching for them before you do so.

Never admit you know why you were pulled over. Respectfully say you don't know.  You don't want to admit there was a valid reason for the stop. You want to preserve that option for your court date, should it come to that.

If you are asked to take the breathalyzer test, or step out of the car and take a field sobriety test, you have the right to say no. If you think you might fail, it's a good idea to refuse. Respectfully state that you don't feel comfortable taking the tests, and ask to speak with an attorney before consenting to any tests. Stay calm and respectful, remember you are probably on video.

You may get arrested at the officer's discretion for slurred speech or the odor of alcohol. If you are arrested, you will be asked to take the tests again. Refusal means you will lose your license. That said, if you are convicted of DUI you will lose your license anyway. Your lawyer will help you contest the loss of the license and the DWI charge.

You may be subjected to a blood test after a warrant is issued, but that warrant will take some time to get.

Never speak without your attorney present, and call your attorney at the first opportunity.

You should always fight any DWI charge. Whether this is your first one or your third one, the stakes are too high to simply accept the DWI.
