Have You Been Arrested for DWI on Galveston Island?

For many people, a drunk driving (DUI or DWI) arrest represents their first interaction with the Texas criminal justice system. Given Galveston Island’s status as a major tourist destination, it is also not surprisingly a magnet for police looking to score easy DWI arrests. If you find yourself stopped on suspicion of drunk driving, it is important to understand and exercise your constitutional rights.

First and foremost, you do not have to answer any police questions. Remember, Galveston police are specially trained in how to interrogate people. Even a seemingly innocent conversation during a “routine” traffic stop is likely an attempt to gather potentially incriminating information. That is why the best thing you can do is politely–but firmly–refuse to answer any questions.

Second, if you are detained or placed under arrest for DWI, you need to contact a Galveston criminal defense lawyer immediately. Many people hesitate to engage a lawyer because they fear it will “only make them look more guilty.” Rest assured, if you have been arrested, the police already think you are guilty. You should never feel like you are doing something wrong when you hire a lawyer.

And this goes for any criminal charge, ranging from a low-level misdemeanor to a first-degree felony. At the Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates, we handle a wide range of criminal matters, including serious felonies, sex crimes, and white collar crimes. We can handle your case from start-to-finish, including any grand jury proceedings or criminal appeals.
