Question: What is the first thing someone should do if a friend or loved one is arrested for DWI in Texas?
Answer: If a friend or a loved one is arrested for a DWI, the first thing they should do is call us. We can usually go down immediately or shortly thereafter and start working on getting them out of jail. There are three ways for a person to get out of jail: they can pay a cash bond, they can call a bail bondsman, or they can call a lawyer. And the benefit of calling a lawyer is, there’s a lot of things that we can do to expedite the process of getting a person out of jail that a bail bondsman cannot. Plus, it gives us an opportunity to meet the individual and they get an opportunity to meet us, and it starts the relationship early on. And we can gain a lot of useful information in those first few hours that we can use in our DWI defense.
