NHTSA SFST (Standardized Field Sobriety Test) Practitioner

It’s no surprise, every year the state of Texas gets tougher against those accused of drinking and driving. Penalties are getting harsher and enforcement is reaching new levels.

A drunk driving conviction in Texas is an incredibly serious matter. Even first-time offenders face jail time, driver’s license suspension, considerable DWI penalties and fines. If you have been charged with drinking and driving, an experienced and skilled attorney can effectively protect your rights and your freedom.

At the Law Offices of George B. Dombart, we have successfully represented countless clients charged with DWI/DUI in Texas. Attorney Dombart has more than 17 years of experience in the area of criminal defense. He is AV-rated under Martindale-Hubbell’s peer review rating system. You can rely on him to provide a solid and thorough defense on your behalf.

What Happens when I’m charged?

When you’re charged with DUI / DWI, you’re faced with two simultaneous charges: a criminal charge and an administrative penalty. Both can lead to a suspension of your driver’s license. The administrative charge is directly related to your driver’s license.

It’s important that you contact us immediately upon a DWI charge. Both of these must be handled appropriately to minimize the impact on your right to drive and your right to a proper defense in a court of law.

What Happens if I’m Found Guilty?

The minimum jail time in Texas for driving while intoxicated is 72 hours. If there’s an open container of alcohol in your possession or in the vehicle, the minimum jail time is at least six days.

Additionally, first time offenders will have their driver’s license suspended from 90 days to a year. In order to reinstate your license after suspension, there’s an additional $125 fee. Each subsequent DWI charge will extend the suspension period and associated fines.

DWI / DUI is a serious charge and must be treated seriously. Don’t delay, contact us immediately to discuss your case.

Common Drunk Driving Defenses

As soon as our firm accepts your case, we will conduct a thorough investigation into your charge to develop an effective defense, whether this is your first or multiple DWI charge. Often, the defense will be determined if the charge involved:

  • Illegal search and seizure: Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a traffic stop to ultimately prove invalid. If the officer has no probable cause, he or she cannot stop your vehicle. Additionally, if the search violates your rights under the Fourth Amendment, any evidence gained through the search is considered inadmissible.
  • Faulty or inaccurate breath test results: Often, breath test results can be called into question by asking training or procedural questions. Was the officer properly trained on the operation of the machine? Was the machine cleaned, stored and calibrated properly between uses? Were there elements present (paint fumes, vomit, medication) that influenced the results?

Depending on the factors specific to your charge, our attorneys will develop a strong defense that limits your exposure to devastating penalties such as jail time or the loss of driving privileges. When you need a knowledgeable defense lawyer on your side, do not hesitate to schedule a consultation at our firm.

Federal Crimes Attorneys ▪ Federal Sentencing Guidelines Lawyer

The San Antonio, Texas criminal defense Law Offices of George B. Dombart wants you to know something that you will not hear from other criminal law attorneys. An experienced state court criminal lawyer with little or no knowledge or understanding of the complexities of federal criminal law can do as much harm as good in many instances.

  • Bond is different and sometimes unavailable
  • Discovery and the rules of evidence are different
  • The caselaw and statutes are different
  • Jury selection is different
  • Penalties are governed by the Federal Sentencing Guidelines

If you or someone you know has been arrested by federal authorities and taken to a federal detention center, you will probably face trial in federal court. Federal authorities can also step in even if local authorities make the arrest. There are many kinds of offenses that fall under the classification of “federal crimes,” such as:

  • Federal Drug Offenses, including Narcotic Conspiracy
  • Smuggling Controlled Substances
  • Internet Crimes
  • Interstate Crimes
  • Bank Robbery
  • Bank Fraud
  • Pornography Cases
  • Mail Fraud/Theft from the Mail
  • Bribery of Public Officials
