Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a serious crime in Texas. Even the most upstanding citizens can make mistakes - and you don't want those mistakes to stay with you for the rest of your life. An experienced DUI and DWI defense attorney can help minimize or eliminate the charges against you.
At the Law Office of Enacio B. Barretto, we understand what's at stake - your career, your family, maybe even your freedom. With my many years of experience with DUI defense, we can help you pass this difficult time so you can get back to living your life.
Just because an officer asks you to take a Breathalyzer test or a field sobriety test does not mean you have to take it. While declining the test results in a license suspension, you are still able to get temporary licenses for your job or other purposes while your case is pending. These tests could often be unreliable anyway, and the results could work against you.
Additionally, you don't have to talk to the officers at all. Admitting any fault is a form of confession, and could make it impossible to get you lower charges. Always consult in your criminal defense attorney before going through with any action law enforcement asks of you.

A DUI defense is something you should not do alone. Many people try, and few get results — some even make their situation worse. These charges could have lasting effects on your life, and if you get caught again the consequences could be much worse.
You want to go back to your job and your family with little penalties or consequences. The best chance you have is with the help of a DUI defense lawyer. Attorney Enacio Barretto understands the law, and can help you get the best results possible for your case.
