Dallas DWI Lawyer Answers Criminal Defense Questions on Ask the Lawyer

From time-to-time everyone likes to unwind with friends and family and enjoy a cold refreshing alcoholic beverage. But if a person is planning on having several drinks, it is important they have a designated driver or alternative solution to get home.

For those people who find themselves behind the wheel after a few drinks, if pulled over by a police officer it can be difficult to know the best way to answer questions or requests posed.

Dallas DWI Attorneys at the Law Offices of Jose Noriega are receiving rave reviews for their recent appearance on the "Ask the Lawyer" show which ran on TXA 21 on June 27, 2012. The show, which focused on the current DWI laws in Texas and criminal defense topics, featured live caller questions answered by Dallas DWI Lawyer Chris Johnson.

On "Ask the Lawyer," Johnson spoke about "No Refusal" weekends and explained how cases are won and lost. A "No Refusal" weekend generally refers to a weekend that coincides with a holiday. On these weekends, individuals pulled over for a suspected DWI who refuse to provide a breath or blood sample may have a warrant placed to obtain their blood.

According to Johnson, although the weekends are called "No Refusal," people always maintain the right to decline to provide a breath or blood sample. However, they will likely be transported back to the police station, whereby they will await their warrant.

On the show, Johnson also discussed the typical costs associated with a DWI case. With some attorneys charging as much as $20,000, making it essential to hire a DWI attorney in Dallas that is experienced and trustworthy.

The Law Offices of Jose Noriega state that it is important to hire an attorney who understands the law and can uphold a person's rights, including challenging the admissibility of alcohol testing used in the case.

According to the Dallas DWI attorneys, "We represent the interests of those facing criminal charges to fullest.
