Scanio & Scanio, A Professional Corporation, is a valuable resource for the accused in Central Texas. No matter what charges you may be facing, we begin with the same critical piece of advice: Talk to a defense lawyer before talking to law enforcement.
We cannot overemphasize how important it is to have an attorney evaluate your case before you participate in questioning or otherwise attempt to defend yourself. Rarely, if ever, do private individuals succeed at talking their way out of criminal charges. Having an experienced lawyer as your advocate is the best way to protect your rights and your freedom.
Experienced Defense Against A Wide Range Of Criminal Charges
We represent individuals charged with a variety of criminal offenses, including:
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI)
- Driving with an invalid driver's license (DWLI)
- Interference with an emergency call
- Unlawful restraint
- Possession of marijuana or other drugs
- Minor in consumption of alcohol
- Furnishing alcohol to a minor
- Public intoxication
- Criminal mischief
- Criminal trespass
- Motion to revoke probation or adjudicate guilt
By the time clients contact us, they have already been arrested for driving while intoxicated. At that point, they have already submitted to field sobriety testing and breath/blood/urine testing or have refused such tests.
Even if you regret whatever decisions you made during the traffic stop that led to your arrest, you might have more options than you realize. Our attorneys are ready to go to work right away in pursuing the suppression of evidence obtained in violation of your constitutional rights or pursuing an occupational driver's license for you while your full driving privileges are suspended.
In some cases, there is a chance of getting a client's suspended license or revoked driver's license reinstated through an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing. The ALR hearing must be requested within 15 days of the arrest. Therefore, we urge you not to delay contacting a lawyer if you have been charged with DWI.
