    DWI Charges

    If you face DWI charges, don’t make any decisions until you contact the Collin County DWI attorneys at Rosenthal Kalabus & Therrian. We have successfully won acquittals, dismissals, and reduced charges in thousands of DWI cases. Our efforts have saved our clients from license revocations, hefty fines, jail time, and more.

    Successful defense of a DWI case begins with analyzing the action of the police officers prior to pulling you over. Texas and federal laws impose a number of procedural safeguards on criminal suspects. The most important among these is the prohibition against unlawful search and seizures. At Rosenthal Kalabus & Therrian our DWI attorneys pride ourselves on our ability to defend clients following unlawful search or seizure. Police must adhere to certain procedures before they can pull you over and administer a breathalyzer or blood test to determine your BAC. 

    For example, they must:

    Have reasonable suspicion you were committing a crime that justified pulling you over

    Have reasonable suspicion of intoxication that justified administering a field sobriety test

    Without evidence of reasonable suspicion, any evidence the officer obtained is inadmissible. Inadmissible means the prosecution cannot use it in court. Inadmissible evidence could include the results of breathalyzer or blood tests.

    Drug Crimes

    Drug addiction is a serious problem. It places a heavy physical, emotional, and financial toll on individuals, families, and communities. Arresting and prosecuting drug crimes eats up valuable time and public resources.

    Placing addicts in jail cells does little to help them recover. And a conviction on a criminal record makes it difficult to obtain future employment. These impossible circumstances only feed the cycle of addiction. This leaves users feeling like they have no choice but to continue in the drug trade. Treatment, especially early treatment, can make all the difference.

    That is why our team checks eligibility for pretrial diversion programs for first-time offenders. To be eligible for participation in the pre-trial diversion program, you must:

    Agree to a period of supervision by the Collin County Community Supervision Department

    Agree to other conditions as required, such as community service, restitution to victims, or treatment

    Agree to not engage in further criminal activity

    In exchange, the prosecutor agrees to dismiss the charges after successful completion of the program. You may also be eligible for an order of expunction, which will allow you to legally deny that a case was ever brought against you.
