Arrested for DWI in Galveston?

Put Tad Nelson & Associates on your side!

Galveston's DWI Defense Expert

Galveston DWI Lawyer Tad Nelson • 1919 Sealy St, Galveston, TX 77550 • (409) 797-6006

We provide legal representation for people arrested in Galveston County for felony and misdemeanor DWI offenses. Although most DWI offenses are misdemeanors, the implications of a conviction even a misdemeanor DWI are severe. Merely being “accused” of driving while intoxicated by a police officer can result in the immediate suspension of your Texas Driver License prior to your first court date for the alleged DWI.

Regardless of the severity of the criminal charges against you, it’s important to take a stand and defend yourself from the aggressive prosecutorial actions that will be waged by the Galveston County Dist. Atty’s Office.

Call us at 409-797-6006 to speak with Tad or Amber about your case, or take your time and browse our website to increase your awareness about DWI and Texas criminal law and to learn more about our firm. Thank you.

The Dangers of the Guilty Plea

You’ll pay a fine. You’ll serve jail time. You’ll live under the tyranny of Texas Drivers License suspension and the guarantee of going straight to jail if you’re caught driving. You’ll have a criminal record. You might be charged with felony DWI in the future. ALL DWI CHARGES ARE SERIOUS!

One of the most important reasons to fight a Galveston DWI case is because its your right, and regardless of what the police may think they’ve witnessed, or what you may think about the situation yourself, in the eyes of the law you’re probably innocent.
