Felony DWI Damage Control

Felony DWIs are serious business that often require some DWI damage control. A Felony DWI in Texas is either a third or more DWI arrest or an arrest for DWI with a child passenger. Keep in mind that a DWI with child passenger is a State Jail Felony *even if it is a first time DWI*. Judges only see a name on a docket sheet and treat Felony DWIs harshly simply because they are felonies (even if you’ve never been in trouble before!). The Tarrant County DWI Lawyers at The Coffey Firm dedicate themselves on humanizing clients so that courts and DAs see beyond just a case number.

DWI Damage Control: “90 in 90”

One form of DWI damage control that The Coffey Firm recommends to all Felony DWI clients is called “90 in 90”. What this means is for the client to do 90 AA meeting in 90 days. This may sound daunting at first, but it is likely the easiest and least restrictive damage control as AA meetings are generally free and offered around the clock to fit your schedule. The reason The Coffey Firm recommends 90 in 90 is because Felony DWI judges tend to look upon it favorably.

The Tarrant County DWI Lawyers at The Coffey Firm can give you an attendance log to take with you to the 90 AA meetings so that you can verify attendance as well as keep track of meeting topics. However, The Coffey Firm usually also recommends keeping a journal (usually a video journal saved in Google Drive) of your meetings as well. This way you keep a record of what the group discussed at a particular meeting. By doing this DWI Damage Control, The Coffey Firm can show this video journal to the State while working on a Successful DWI Outcome.
