We live in an era in which even a first-time traffic offense can negatively impact you in terms of a current job, a new employment opportunity or something as simple, but important, as your family budget. If you have been arrested on a misdemeanor or felony charge, the stakes become even higher.
At the Law Office of Thomas Swain, PLLC, in Austin, Texas, our team is experienced and highly skilled at minimizing or eliminating the impact of traffic violations, including traffic warrants and license suspensions. We also take an aggressive approach to defending individuals against a wide range of criminal charges, including driving while intoxicated (DWI), assault, drug crimes and theft.
DWI Attorney For Georgetown
Simple traffic citations can have serious consequences. If it is recorded on your driving record, it may increase your insurance rates, endanger your driving privileges and result in an increase in your auto insurance rates. If you drive for a living and possess a commercial driver's license (CDL), your job security may depend on keeping your driving record clean.
Our knowledge of Texas traffic laws as well as Austin-area traffic courts allows us to create effective legal strategies that limit the negative consequences of traffic violations.
Some traffic offense attorneys do little more than accompany you to court, speak on your behalf and collect their fee. We begin every case by reviewing the facts to determine if it makes sense to fight for dismissal. This includes carefully examining how and why you were stopped, and determining if there are other witnesses we should speak with.
If you have been charged with DWI, you have 15 days to schedule an administrative license revocation (ALR) hearing. We will help you prepare and present the strongest argument possible at that hearing, as well as in the criminal case against you.
Aggressive Criminal Defense
Attorney Swain has an equally strong reputation in Austin-area criminal courts, where he uses his negotiation skills to bring many of his cases to an efficient and successful resolution without going to trial. However, he possesses the litigation experience and knowledge to take any case to court if necessary.
We provide highly personalized representation, beginning with a free initial consultation in which we can answer your questions and recommend the best steps to take next. Call 512-371-6487 or email us to schedule an appointment with our Austin criminal defense and traffic violations lawyer.
