Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 16, 2009
The Austin, Texas law firm of Minton, Burton, Foster & Collins, P.C., has launched a new Web site at http://www.tx-dwi-lawyer.com for those seeking a lawyer after an arrest for drunk driving offenses.
"For many people, an arrest on a DWI charge is their first run-in with the criminal justice system, and they're confused about what to expect next," said MBFC attorney Sam Bassett. "This site gives them information on the penalties they face and the options available for challenging the charges. We also want the public to know MBFC can provide affordable, experienced representation in their case."
The site, which launched in March, features information about the different stages of a DWI case, from arrest to appeals. Content highlights include:
- DWI Laws -- The site explains the range of penalties for first, second and third offenses, as well as DWI accidents involving injuries.
- Drug Use While Driving -- The site explores the similarities between driving under the influence of drugs and other drunk driving arrests.
- Underage Drinking -- Texas has strict laws and penalties for underage drinkers. One section of the Web site focuses on the serious charges teens face.
- BWI Laws -- Boating While Intoxicated (BWI) discusses how those stops differ from automobile stops and what boat operators are at risk for a BWI.
"The lawyers here at MBFC realize what a serious problem DWI can be for our community," Bassett said. "However, when Texas residents find themselves arrested for a DWI, we want to help them protect their rights and resolve the matter with the least amount of impact to their lives."
