Second Offense DWI Charges in Texas

Have you been arrested for DWI in Grimes County, Texas? If this is your second DWI offense, you may be facing harsh penalties. Any prior driving while intoxicated conviction can count, meaning that an offense which occurred more than 10 years ago will still show up on your record and cause you to face increased penalties for your current DWI charges!

As an experienced and knowledgeable Grimes County DWI attorney, Doug Atkinson is dedicated to representing clients arrested for a second offense DWI. He understands that defending these charges can be more difficult because the defendant has a prior conviction on his or her record, but he takes this in stride as he dedicates the necessary time and effort to representing his clients to the best of his ability.
