Looking for a lawyer in Houston area for bogus DWI charge that won't cost $20,000.
My husband has a DWI charge. We hired a lawyer which became the county judge and now we're starting all over. My husband never did a Breathalyzer, no blood drawn, and was never arrested. Now over 2 years later they are saying he needs to be processed and tried. We don't know what to do.

Can a conviction on a misdemeanor DUI be altered?
I was convicted on a 1st offense DUI in Liberty, Texas on November 10th, 2016. I was sentenced to the usual, fine, probation, community service. The problem... I have another DUI in a different state from 1995. The 1st offense was not discovered in the current case. If the court were to become aware of the 1st offense, can they overturn the current conviction?
No, the deal is done. Consider yourself to have escaped harsher prosecution.
Texas concealed handgun. DWI guilty charged.
I was convicted with a DWI at the age of 18 years old on November 2011, ended up violating probation on June 2012 and did time served. I am now trying to apply for a CHL as I saw it says "has not, in the five years preceding the application, been convicted of a Class A or Class B misdemeanor, or equivalent offense, or an offense under Section 42.01 of the Penal Code (Disorderly Conduct) or equivalent offense," Would this mean five years from when I got the DWI on November 2011 or after I was released from jail in 2012? I am wondering if violating my probation will have effect in this matter or will I be good to apply for the CHL as of now.
The seminal date is when you were convicted, which for a dwi would be the date you went on probation.
