Hello, my name is Eric Benavides, and I am a Houston DWI Attorney. I am one of two attorneys who started the law firm Benavides & Serrano, PLLC. I decided to start a DWI blog because more people get arrested for DWI than anything else. I hope to provide insight and advice to individuals facing (and those who may face) a DWI.
I intend to use this blog for many things. I plan to use it to talk about DWI cases, to talk about general info in the news regarding DWI, and about general things that amuse me about these types of cases. Hopefully no one reading this will ever need a DWI lawyer in Houston, but if you are going to be arrested, the chances are it’s going to be for drinking and driving.
The great thing about being a DWI attorney is all the interesting people you run into. The fact of the matter is most people drink socially, and that doesn’t exclude doctors, engineers, and even lawyers. I have represented individuals accused of DWI who are true habitual criminals, all the way to individuals who have post-graduate degrees and a clean record. Being a DWI attorney is a field of work where you get to mingle with every part of society, and personally I enjoy that aspect of the job.
DWI doesn’t discriminate. Anyone could be arrested just for admitting that they had a drink at dinner, even if they aren’t legally intoxicated. It is not illegal to drink and drive in Texas! This is one thing I don’t believe all officers understand, and one of the things I love most about being a Houston DWI Attorney is all of the innocent people that I get to help!
If you ever find yourself in the unfortunate situation of needing a DWI lawyer in Houston feel free to contact me at 713-222-2828. I can’t promise you that you will win your case, but I promise you that I will always be up front with you, and that I will work to get you the best possible outcome.
