Attorney Marsh

This is a question that gets asked pretty often so I thought it’s worth explaining. Many people use the words DUI and DWI interchangeably when these problems come up. Some states call it DWI, others call it DUI, and some states have different criminal charges for DWI vs. DUI. The differences can be quite large. DUI stands for Driving Under the Influence. DWI stands for Driving While Intoxicated. The potential punishments and consequences between the two can be very important if you’re charged with either in Texas.

This is a guest blog post by a friend of mine, Jon Clark, who is a personal injury attorney out of Austin, Texas. Personal injury cases usually include everything from slip and fall, car accidents, and wrongful death claims. Car accident cases and DWI charges often go hand in hand.

Maybe you’ve had a few beers over the course of hours. Alcohol can be removed from your…

Reasonable Suspicion and Traffic Stops

Reasonable Suspicion and Traffic Stops

Attorney Marsh

For most people, the term reasonable suspicion doesn’t come up on a daily basis. It’s a legal standard used in the Texas criminal justice world. However, every time police are on patrol, they use reasonable suspicion to decided whether or not to pull you over or whether or not to stop and talk to you. Police officers in Travis and Williamson Counties, just like the rest of the state, need reasonable suspicion to stop you. Reasonable suspicion and traffic stops are like peanut butter and jelly. You can’t have one without the other. This can affect your case in a variety…

What To Do When Pulled Over For DWI

Attorney Marsh

One topic that I’ve done small presentations on has to deal with DWI’s in Texas. What do I do if I’m pulled over for DWI? DWI’s are one area of law that can affect the richest of the rich and people living from paycheck to paycheck. At the end of the day, few sights can make your heart sink faster than the one above. First, just to make this absolutely clear, I advise all my clients to NEVER drink and drive. A drunk driving charge can be very costly. It’s expensive to defend and even more costly on your family,…
