Breath & Blood Tests Fierce Representation Paired with Passionate Service

DWI Breath & Blood Tests

Brazoria County DWI Attorney Serving Galveston & Beyond

If you are pulled over in Texas on suspicion of driving while intoxicated (DWI), you will be asked to submit to a chemical blood test or a breath test in order to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC). In this state, a BAC of 0.08 percent or higher is considered over the legal limit. DWI charges are serious and can lead to heavy penalties.

Should I refuse the chemical BAC test?

The "implied consent" law in the state of Texas means that by driving here you consent to take a chemical test if an officer has probable cause to suspect that you have been drinking. If you refuse to take the test, your driver's license will be confiscated and suspended for a minimum of 180 days. If you do take the test and fail it, your license will only be suspended for 90 days. At the time of your arrest, the officer should inform you of this.

Accuracy of Blood & Breath Tests

BAC tests are fairly accurate, but they are not failsafe. Blood tests are considered to be the most accurate form of testing according to forensic experts, but obtaining a blood sample is invasive and difficult. Breath tests, while much simpler to conduct, have a relatively large margin for error.

Even if you fail your test, your case is not lost. Choose an attorney known for fierce and thick-skinned representation. At the Law Office of Steve O. Gonzalez, we are committed to fighting for our clients and getting your freedom back after a DWI arrest.

    "I highly recommend Steve and this team"
    In George Orwell Book (Animal Farm) George Orwell said, " All animal are created equal, but some are more equal than others"
    Ultimately, the quote serves as a cautionary reminder of the potential pitfalls that emerge when individual or collective interests overshadow the principles of fairness and justice.
    1) As my attorney I was updated with phone calls and followed by mail.
    2) He did what only the best attorney do, defending the client's interest and reputation and not plea bargaining for lesser sentence.
    3) Will stand up for client's rights, Justice and fairness.
    All attorneys including State Public Defenders are created equal they and they all have the same functions to perform in the civil society. In my experience with Steve and his team are more equal than others in fighting for rights, fairness and justice which is why we go to court.
    After going through the system once I pray, I never be in that situation again, I am glad I found an attorney that suited my needs. If I were to be in the situation again, I would rather walk into that court with this attorney with confidence knowing that nothing can possibly go wrong. For anyone that may need the service of an attorney, I highly recommend Steve and this team if you want to come out innocent OR you might as well settle for a public Defender and give the prosecutor your jail house uniform size before you get to the courthouse. The difference will be clear after the verdict, you make the choice.

    "Godsend"
    I was charged with 2 felony cases (DWI & Evading) and my life had just turned upside down. I was looking to hire the best attorney in Brazoria County and everyone I talked to said Steve Gonzalez was the best. Through his hard work and persistence, he was able to prove my innocence. I wouldn't want my life in anyone else's hand except his.

    "Experienced and Respected"
    I am extremely grateful that Mr. Gonzalez represented me in my case. From the very beginning, he was very communicative and made me feel at ease. His legal assistants were also very kind and helpful throughout the process. He is a highly respected attorney whose reputation and expertise are phenomenal.

    "Could not have been better"
    Was arrested twice in a very short period for invalid license. I was unaware how seriously Brazoria County takes the charge. I was looking at a class A misdemeanor for the second offense and the state had not filed the first. I thought the best possible outcome could be time served and awaiting first offense but Mr Gonzalez got the second offense dropped to a Class C misdemeanor with $100 fine and no filing of the first case I had not even considered that possible in the outcome could not have been better.

    "Best Lawyer hands down! Your in good hands if you hire them"
    I was facing a very scary and very serious felony charge and I was innocent! Steve Gonzalez and Kristi fought and got no bill. When they tell you you’re in good hands, you if you don’t take their word for it please take mine! They got me my life back and I could never ever thank them enough for this. The best hands down.

    "Best Lawyer hands down"
    Steve and his law firm are by far the best firm around. They were always in court on time and kept me informed throughout my 3-year process with Steve and his partner Kristina. He ended up getting my case dismissed after that long period. I would like to thank both of them for there and patience with my case it was money well spent and would definitely refer him to everybody.

    "Great Attorney"
    Kristi is fantastic. I recommend her to anyone that needs a DWI attorney. She is knowledgeable and informative. If you want to win the case hire Kristi.
    - Former Client
    "One of the Greatest"
    Steve O. Gonzales took the time and effort to navigate through and precisely take care of what needed to be done. He doesn't hold back and goes all out. Most definitely worth the money. He is a good man with good values. Doesn't take any B.S. from the court or the client. Honesty gets Excellent Results.
