FAQ

 

The DWI DUDE answers the most frequently asked questions about DWI. If you have a question you want the DWI DUDE to answer please click here.

Question: " I have always wondered what I would do if they demanded blood and came at me with a needle.   This would scare me, and even if I was not intoxicated, I might feel threatened and explode or resist. Can they legally stop and demand blood on the spot?   I have heard stories on the radio like….they will take blood even without my consent.   Is that legal?   I can not be the only person who does not like needles…….or would not want them to take my blood in any way.  What should I do specifically about blood taking if I am ever pulled over?"

Police Chief Art Acevedo puts into effect the issuing of blood search warrants on certain weekends when a person refuses to submit to a breath test.  If you submit to the breath test, they will not get a warrant to take your blood, but if you refuse, then they will, on these weekends, get a search warrant to take your blood.  However, they are now trying to pass a bill that implements the blood search warrants any time a person refuses the breath test, not just on select weekends.  Obviously the correct answer to this question is to not drink and drive-call a cab, but there is still a state law that sets the intoxication level at > .08.  Those under .08 should not be subjected to fallible scientific tests that may render them guilty even though they are not intoxicated.  See should I take the breath test? for more info. 

Question: What are the cops looking for to indicate driving while intoxicated?

Answer: The Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) Program divides the DWI investigation into three parts: 1) Vehicle in Motion (VIM -driving facts); 2) Personal Contact (PC - your appearance); and 3) Arrest Decision (SFSTs - HGN, WAT, and OLS).

During the VIM portion of the investigation the officer is watching the vehicle for the following clues.  The list of clues or cues, as originally published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is as follows:

  1. Turning with a wide Radius
  2. Straddling the center or lane marker line
  3. Appearing to be drunk
  4. Almost striking an object or vehicle
  5. Weaving
  6. Driving on other than designated roadway
  7. Swerving
  8. Slow speed (driving 10 mph or more under the speed limit)
  9. Stopping, without cause, in the traffic lane
  10. Following too closely
  11. Drifting
  12. Tires on center or lane marker
  13. Braking erratically
  14. Driving into opposing or crossing traffic
  15. Signaling inconsistent with driving actions
  16. Slow response to traffic signals
  17. Stopping inappropriately (other than in traffic lane)
  18. Turning abruptly or illegally
  19. Accelerating or decelerating rapidly
  20. Headlights off

You will notice that "speeding" is not one of the listed clues, nor is defective tail lights or license plate lights. In other words, many DWI investigations begin with non-DWI traffic stops.  The DWI investigation then begins due to issues that begin during the Person Contact portion of the stop.

Our office has enjoyed great success in DWI trials during cross examination by showing that there were no "drunk driving" facts in the case. Many officers have spread the word that it is better to follow the potential "DWI victim" for some distance in order to observe traffic violations that are on the list.  This allows the testifying officer to beef up the probable cause to make and support the actual DWI arrest.

Think of thousands of traffic violations that occur each and every day in your city. Add in the odor of an alcoholic beverage and you have the average "Drunk Driving" arrest. 

Personal Contact-phase 2

As the officer approaches the vehicle they are instructed to gather evidence by observing and interviewing the driver.  The officer is using face to face observation and will be

Looking for:

  • Blood shot eyes
  • Soiled clothing
  • Fumbling fingers
  • Alcohol containers
  • Drugs or drug paraphernalia
  • Bruises bumps or scratches
  • Unusual actions

Listening for:

  • Slurred speech
  • Admission of drinking
  • Inconsistent responses
  • Abusive language
  • Unusual statements

Smelling for:

  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Marijuana
  • Cover up like breath sprays
  • Unusual odors

The officer will ask questions in attempt to interview you. He may ask you to produce two things simultaneously, such as your license and registration, and is alert for a driver who:

  • Forgets to produce both documents upon request
  • Produces documents other that the ones requested
  • Fails to see the license, registration, or both while searching through wallet, or purse, etc
  • Fumbles or drops wallet, purse, license or registration
  • Is unable to retrieve documents with finger tips

The officer may ask interrupting questions or distracting questions such as ‘What time is it’ as you are searching for your documents.  The officer is now observing to see if the driver:

  • Ignores the question and concentrates on the license or registration search
  • Forgets to resume search after answering the question
  • Supplies grossly incorrect answer to the question

If the driver seems impaired due any of the above reasons, the officer will ask the driver to exit the vehicle.  As the driver exits, the officer will gather evidence of impairment from a driver who:

  • Shows angry or unusual reactions
  • Cannot follow instructions
  • Cannot open the door
  • Leaves the vehicle in gear
  • “Climbs” out of vehicle
  • Leans against vehicle
  • Keeps hands on vehicle for balance 

Arrest Decision-Phase 3

 Phase 3 consists of the Field Sobriety Tests and the Preliminary Breath Tests both designed to gather probable cause to arrest the suspect for DWI.

HGN-Always begins with the left eye. Each eye is examined for 3 specific clues.  The maximum number of clues in one eye is 3 and the maximum number per suspect is 6. According to the NHTSA manual of 2006, if 4 or more clues are evident it is likely that the suspect is impaired above the legal limit of .08.

The clues the officer is watching for:

When the eye moves side to side does it move smoothly or does it jerk noticeably?

When the eye moves as far to the side as possible and is kept at that position, does it jerk distinctly?

As the eye moves toward the side does it start to jerk prior to a 45 degree angle?

VGN- is involuntary jerking of the eyes when moving up and down.

Walk and Turn-

Administered and interpreted in a standardized manner, ie, the same way every time. Officers administering the Walk and Turn test observe the suspect’s performance for 8 clues:

  • Can’t balance during instructions
  • Starts too soon
  • Stops while walking
  • Doesn’t touch heel to toe
  • Steps off the line
  • Uses arms to balance
  • Loses balance on turn or turns incorrectly and
  • Takes the wrong number of steps

One Leg Stand- Requires the suspect to stand on one leg and count to 30 out loud as “one thousand and one, one thousand and two, one thousand and three, etc…”

The officer carefully observes the suspect’s performance and looks for 4 specific clues:

  • Sways while balancing
  • Uses arms to balance
  • Hops
  • Puts foot down

 

PBT-Preliminary Breath Testing-is to demonstrate the association of alcohol with the observable evidence of the suspect’s impairment.  In Texas PBT results are not admissible as evidence in court, but can be used to gather probable cause to make an arrest.  

*This is different than the breath test they do after you're arrested at jail or in the BAT mobile on the Intoxilyzer 5000. The PBT is used to gather evidence to arrest you.

I felt everyone was very knowledgable and truly cared about my case. Everyone was very professional and there is not one person who delt with me that should not be commended. You all were great. Overall my experience turn out to be positive and I am very grateful.

Thank you,

G.T.

Client 2009


I was very happy and impressed with the service provided by your law office and the staff, especially with the time spent on my case, and impressed with the manpower behind it. I have never really needed a lawyer before and was surprised at the multiple people backing me and working on my case. I was confident that they were all looking out for my best interest. I am very pleased with the results of my case, I was willing to take my case to trial and the firm fought to keep my record clean.

D.B.

I appreciate the care and attention I have been given by your law firm. Ashley and Val have been very helpful and have kept me informed every step of the way. I will recommend the law firm to everyone I know.

Client 2009


Jamie, hope all is going well with you and your firm.
It has been a little over a year ago (July 4) since M was jailed and released.
I am very happy to report she is doing super.
My belief is she started her journey with the hour or so you spent speaking with her the day after she was released. No doubt, most people would not consider her problem as minor...but, my belief is it was so traumatic to her, it helped her take a long look at her life and those she spent time with. Today, she has a better position, a fine boy friend, and plans to finish up her college....plus, she has gained so much from her psychologist.
At the end of the day...thank you for the interest you took in her...and all those at your firm.
We will always be grateful. Let me know if there is anything I can ever do for you.

Best Personal Regards, R.L.



I cannot express enough how much I thank the Law Office of Jamie Balagia and his staff for representing me in a time of need. I would like to thank my attorney who represented me in the DWI and ALR case and who guided me and led me in the right direction.

G.G. CLIENT-2008



I thought my case was handled very professionally and was happy with the outcome. The final result of my case turned out to be well worth the money I paid.

C.M. CLIENT- 2008



Overall I was definitely pleased with the outcome and would recommend the Law Office of Jamie Balagia to friends!

S.R. -CLIENT-2008


The details of the entire legal process were explained very clearly. I realize how busy your office is, but whenever I had a specific question or concern, I always received a prompt reply and options.

D.V. -CLIENT-DWI-2008


I was very pleased with the final results of my case and satisfied with the service your law firm provided.

L.B.-CLIENT-DWI-2008


Thank you for all of you and your staff's assistance. I didn't come out smelling like a rose, but at least I am not stinking up the jailhouse.

You guys are a class act!

Kind regards

"We want to thank Jamie from the bottom of our hearts, for everything he did for our brother. We were not expecting such a low term and he did such a good job getting it reduced. We are completely satisfied with the results of the case and believe everything was handled perfectly. Thank you." 

 A.R. (Sister of a client)- Felony DWI-2008


Overall I was pleased through this process and with the final results of my case and I would recommend to friends!

S.R. (Client)  Ordinance Violation 2008


Fighting for freedom is what I do best.  So when I got pulled over I knew I wanted someone that had the same instincts as me by taking the fight to them and up hold my rights as a person that I work so hard to protect.  Jamie Balagia fights the battle for your rights of being innocent until proven guilty by using knowledge, professionalism, experience, and riding the edge to do what he can to prove you innocent.  Having Jamie on your side of the law is like having a good buddy in the same foxhole.  I knew nothing was guaranteed but I felt like he gave me the best chance to win and he got the job done in my case and proved me innocent.  Having the right lawyer to represent you is everything when you sit in court. Thank you Jamie for everything!!! 

H.A. (Client) DWI  2006


Dear Mr. Balagia,

I was a client of yours a few years back, and I am writing to thank you and your staff for your help with my case and your sincere concern for my well-being.  As I write this, it has been almost 3 years to the day that i was arrested for DWI.  That night began my journey into sobriety and a better life.  I celebrated 2 years sober in August, and my life is going in a good direction.  I am working at a new job that i love, I am in a loving relationship, my family is proud of me. In short, I am putting the pieces back together. While, I did not enjoy having trouble with the law, I see the experience as a blessing that brought me to where I am today.  Your counsel and understanding really helped me. I just wanted you to know.

Thank you,

B.K. (Client) DWI


I was very satisfied with your services because my case was resolved quickly and did not take too much time. I was pleased with the results of my case.

"I was very satisfied with the service that was provided by DWIDUDE.COM.
Everyone in the office was very courteous to me when I called with
questions or had to go into the office. I was very pleased with the
final results of my case because I was not convicted of a DWI!"

- K. F. (Client) Hays County - DWI


"Everyone was very kind to my family and I felt like the best outcome was a priority.  I was very pleased with my case because you got it reduced."

- H.G. (Client) - Hays County DWI


"I think choosing your office and attorneys helped to nudge the prosecutor to dismiss my case.  Given your reputation and DWI experience they did not need too much persuading to realize their flimsy case against me.  Will and the rest of the office staff were patient and helpful in person and on the phone.  This was especially good due to the County's foot dragging in filing and proceeding in my case.”

- M. H. (Client) DWI - Williamson County;  October 2007


"Everyone that I had contact with was very informed, professional, and patient.  I was very anxious and everyone was very helpful. I was very pleased with the results of my case. John was wonderful to work with and I felt secure with his representation. Teresa was very patient as I completed the ODL process.  I had a good experience with the representation. The process was perfect."

- K.P. (Client) DWI - Williamson County; October 2007



"Jamie Balagia and his staff were very professional and prompt. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case."

- S. M. - DWI Travis County, Texas September 2007 (Client)




"You were my 'Shotgun' in a forest of rattlesnakes. I think under all the circumstances we achieved a decent outcome."

- T. W. - Civil Case Travis County, Texas September 2007 (Client)




"I was very satisfied with your services. Everyone was so very friendly & non-judgmental like most of society. I couldn't be happier with the results of my case."

- S. M. - August 2007 (Client)




"I was very satisfied. Ya'll were very prompt and cut to the chase. Ya'll did not beat around the bush. Ya'll have done everything I've expected and more.

Thank you!"

- S.B. - August 2007 (Client)




"I was very impressed and happy with my representation from Will & John. They were both very nice and understanding of my situation. They were always available to answer any questions I had, along with everyone else at the office. I will definitely be recommending your office if the situation ever arises."

- T.S. - Round Rock, Texas July 2007 (Client)




From the first time we sat and spoke to you until the events of today, every one of you has made us feel like family. Aaron and I both appreciate the respect you gave us and everything done to try to help us. Please let Will know that we are thankful to him as well for the time he gave to our case. And Jamie, he is everything you could ask for and more in lawyer and as a human being. Although we met you all under stressful times, we feel very blessed to have come to call you friends. If we ever have cause to refer clients to you, we will do so knowing that we would be sending them to the best! Thank you Ashley, for everything. Please keep us posted when your next baby arrives so we can send you something. Have a great day!!

Love and respect always,

- A. K. - Washington County July 2007 (Client)




I am very satisfied with your services because of the charge that I originally received could have put my job at risk. Now that my case is final and I was charged with a different charge, I no longer feel as if I could lose my job. There was nothing more that you could have done to have been more helpful in my case.

- R. T. - Giddings, Texas June 2007 (Client)




I was very satisfied with my case - my case was dismissed, my classes were dismissed and everyone said classes could not be dismissed. Very pleased with the results.

- R. B. - Austin, Texas - June 2007 (Client)




Mr. Mitchell and Ms. Teresa were extremely helpful and professional. Ashley who did the initial intake was instrumental in having me select your firm in my case.

Mr. Jamie Balagia
Attorney at Law
P.O. Box 360
Manor, Texas 78653

Dear Jamie:

I hope this letter finds you well. I wanted to take a moment to tell you how much I enjoyed seeing you last week at our DUI seminar in Las Vegas, and to thank you for always being so unselfish with your time and knowledge of DUI defense when we get a chance to visit.

It has been a real pleasure getting to know you over the past few years. Ever since meeting you at one of our National College of DUI Defense seminars, I have come to find that although we are privileged to be part of such a small, prestigious group of truly accomplished and nationally known DUI attorneys, you are one of the more innovative and respected amongst his peers inside this very select group. Thank you for sharing your defense strategies and your overall knowledge on how to beat these very difficult cases.

As one very well known DUI attorney said, “if it were easy, everybody would be doing it.” But we know that the vast majority of attorneys simply are not capable of winning these cases. Well, now I know why you do win so many. I learned more from you last week in Las Vegas on how to beat the police intoxilyzer machine than I have while spending over $15,000.00 a year traveling to these high priced expert seminars.

I always enjoy seeing you there, and rest easy knowing that if nothing else, as long as I get some time to visit with you, I will always leave there a much smarter attorney than when I came. Great seeing you! Thanks again for your fine company and your expertise on how to beat these seemingly unbeatable cases!

Sincerely,
- C.H.C. (Friend of the Firm)


DWI Dude Team,

"I want to thank you very much for your persistence and hard work towards our case. We are VERY pleased that you were able to get this case dismissed. Your hard work, legal knowledge, and dedication to our case prevailed in the end. Keep fighting for the good people and against the liberal policies that exist in our legal system today. This is a great team to have in your corner and you have shown that there is still justice in the legal system."

Thanks again!
- Lisa F. (Client)



"Jamie is hands down the best DWI lawyer in South Texas. His trial skills are superior to his competition. He is the ONLY lawyer in South Texas I have EVER referred a client to. Jamie knows DWI law. He has superior trial skills and he is respected by law enforcement. Hands down the best DWI lawyer in South Texas. Jamie is a trial lawyer, not a plea machine. He is respected by his peers nationwide for his excellent abilities....he knows how to win. If keeping Austin weird is your motto, hire Balagia. He is all that and more, and he can try a mean DWI too."

- Doug Wilder (Lawyer; Colleague)


"Thanks for all you guys do. You're the best!!"

- Robb E. (Client)


Dear DWI Dude Team,

"...Thank you so much for being a wonderful team to work with! I wish you all happiness and success..."

- Sarah T. (Radio Rep)


"Fighting for freedom is what I do best. So when I got pulled over I knew I wanted someone that had the same instincts as me by taking the fight to them and up hold my rights as a person that I work so hard to protect. Jamie Balagia fights the battle for your rights of being innocent until proven guilty by using knowledge, professionalism, experience, and riding the edge to do what he can to prove you innocent. Having Jamie on your side of the law is like having a good buddy in the same foxhole. I knew nothing was guaranteed but I felt like he gave me the best chance to win and he got the job done in my case and proved me innocent. Having the right lawyer to represent you is everything when you sit in court."

Thank you Jamie for everything!!!

- SSG HAROLD A. (Client)

Sincerely,
- Mack L. (Client)
