DWI in Texas is something that affects over 200,000 people every year, and a conviction of even one DWI can have major life consequences - jobs, driver’s licenses, and child custody sometimes hang in the balance of the outcome. For defense attorneys, litigating these cases can be extremely fraught - DWI is sometimes referred to as an “opinion case” because much of a DWI investigation is based on a police officer’s subjective determination of what he witnessed at the scene or while administering the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests.
This program, taught by veteran DWI attorney Tyler Flood, will discuss all the elements required to prove DWI in Texas. The course will explain the standardized field sobriety tests, how the state calculates a Blood Alcohol Level (BAC) at the time of driving using Retrograde Extrapolation, and cover driver’s license consequences stemming from a conviction or from a DPS suspension through the Administrative License Revocation process.
