Driving While Intoxicated

A Collin County DWI can be life-altering

From the moment an officer activates his overhead lights to begin a traffic stop to the moment your case is resolved, a Collin County DWI can affect many parts of your life. In these circumstances, it is wise to have an attorney with experience in DWI cases, especially DWI trials. That attorney will be able to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the state's case against you. Each of the trial lawyers at Goheen & O’Toole, P.L.L.C. is prepared to be that attorney for you.

We know Collin County DWI procedures

Prosecutors will try to prove a Collin County DWI either through an officer's belief that the driver does not have the normal use of mental or physical faculties because of the introduction of a substance, or because the driver has an alcohol concentration of .08 or greater. One way officers can attempt to determine that the driver does not have the normal use of their faculties is through standardized field sobriety tests. Our attorneys are familiar with these tests and use our experience to help you in determining if the tests were administered correctly.

To determine if you have an alcohol concentration of .08 or greater, an officer will need you to provide a breath or blood sample. Many people ask us if they are required to perform the field sobriety tests or provide a sample of their breath or blood. We at Goheen & O’Toole, P.L.L.C. don't recommend providing either.

Here for you through it all

  • ALR Hearings
  • Occupational Licenses
  • Blood Alcohol + Drugs
  • SFSTs
