If you have been arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI), or if you are under 21 and have been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI), you need an experienced defense attorney on your side. You need someone who knows and understands the criminal justice system; someone who can explain your rights and then FIGHT for those rights. You need the kind of experience that John C. Hafley can bring to your case.
As a former Police Officer
and Assistant Criminal District Attorney
, John knows all aspects of the courtroom. As a former police officer certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to administer and assess the clues of the Standardized Field Sobriety Test, he understands how DWI accused citizens are arrested and how cases are charged. He knows how the prosecution will present the facts, and he knows when there is a good or weak case against you. DO NOT lose your rights because another attorney told you to bargain. John will provide an aggressive drunk driving defense whenever possible, and sound legal counsel so you can make the best informed decision about how to move forward on your DWI or DUI case.
Knowing the serious consequences associated with a DWI or DUI conviction on your record, John will take your case to trial if that is the only available option to try to keep your record clean. He focuses a significant portion of his criminal practice on the defense of drunk driving for everyday citizens, professionals and college students, including:
DWI / DUI
Expunction and Non-Disclosures - Charges are expunged (erased) from your record or not disclosed, so that they are no longer available to future employers or the public to view.
Occupational Driver's License - An occupational license is needed for driving to work and when essential household activities are necessary.
Texas Driver's License Suspension Hearing (ALR) - You only have 15 days from the date of an arrest to request a license suspension hearing. If you do nothing, your driver's license will be suspended on the 40th day after your arrest.
