Both law enforcement officials and the courts of Texas typically come down hard on those charged with either of these crimes.

The State of Texas makes a distinction between DUI and DWI, which means that you need an experienced Texas DUI/DWI defense attorney who can construct the proper defense strategy for your charges. A DUI charge falls under the Texas Traffic Code and is only issued to minors under the age of 21. A DWI charge falls under the Texas Penal Code and is a more serious offense. Legal adults can be charged with DWI and possibly face large fines, jail time and a suspended driver’s license.
