The state has other ways they can try to prove intoxication. If an officer ever tells you that if you pass a breath test you can ...

Once in a while a scenario pops up when a DWI investigation changes from Alcohol to Drugs. In other words, the cops might think a person was intoxicated by alcohol, and then later change their mind and investigate the case as a drug DWI.

I hired Mr. Benavides after having another court appointed lawyer for 8 months. I was charged with a very serious felony. The court appointed was telling me to sign for 10 years, and then later 8 years. I lost faith in that guy and had my family hire Mr. Benavides. After working on the case for a few months he convinced the DA to drop the felony and they gave me a misdemeanor with time served. So basically I went from losing years of my life in prison to not having to serve any additional time in jail. I cannot thank you enough Mr. Benavides for what you did for me. There is no way to thank you properly, but I believe in karma and you have a lot of good karma coming your way. Forever grateful!
