In part thanks to tougher drunk driving laws, greater public awareness of drunk driving and the rise of ride sharing services such as Uber and Lyft, drunk driving statistics are down in Texas and across the nation.
As a result, charges of driving while intoxicated, or DWI, also are down.
Last year, DWI arrests in Texas declined during typically high-arrest periods, including Memorial Day weekend. And across the nation, DWI arrests have been markedly lower, including a 40 percent drop over five years in Arizona.
While this good news for society overall, this means less work for defense lawyers who have long focused on DWI cases. Since DWI cases are their specialty, the trend toward fewer DWI charges means they need other sources of income.
As a result, many DWI lawyers are now claiming to be sex offense lawyers and trying to get clients in an area for which they have scant knowledge and little, if any, experience.
Beware of such attorneys, who will not have the skill and know-how you need when facing a sex crime charge in Houston, Harris County, Montgomery County or Fort Bend County.
Sex crime charges are serious offenses with serious punishments. You don’t want to place your trust and your fate in the hands of a lawyer whose specialty is DWI cases, not sex offense cases.
