Houston DWI Lawyer

Serving Houston And Surrounding Counties

Paul Darrow of the Darrow Law Firm handles all types of driving while intoxicated (DWI) and driving under the influence (DUI) cases in the Houston area, from first time drunk driving to felony DWI offenses. While being arrested for DWI can be both embarrassing and frightening, Paul is committed to excellence when it comes to defending his clients and will be there every step of the way.

For many people charged with DWI, this type of offense is the first time being in trouble with the law, and it will probably be the last.

Paul Darrow has handled both misdemeanor and felony DWI cases. He not only learned how the government uses police officers' trained testimony, but he also knows how scientific evidence is used against those accused of intoxication offenses. As a Houston criminal defense attorney, he now uses this insider knowledge to help his clients fight such cases against the State.

You Only Have 15 Days to Save Your Drivers License!

If you're apprehended for DWI, you must request an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing within 15 days to prevent your driver's license from being suspended. It's crucial to note that this hearing is distinct from any criminal charges you may be facing for alcohol-related convictions. Failure to request the hearing within the specified timeframe will result in an automatic license suspension. To receive assistance with this aspect of your case, please contact our office as soon as possible.

Many people know that refusing to take a breath or blood test can result in an automatic suspension of your driver’s license. If you refused to take a breath or blood test, or you did take the breath or blood test and failed, you will need an experienced Houston DWI Attorney to fight to save your driver’s license.

Just because you have been arrested for DWI or DUI in Houston does not mean you are guilty. As your Houston DWI Attorney, Paul will carefully review your case and get all the facts so that he can help you in every way possible even if it is your first DWI. There are many areas where the police may have made mistakes or missed important details, and these could mean the difference between a conviction and a dismissal of your case.


One example of this is that people are arrested for drunk driving when in reality they have had only had one or two drinks. Contrary to some advertising campaigns (Drink. Drive. Go to Jail.), it is legal to drink and drive. It is only illegal to do so if alcohol or drugs have caused your driving to be impaired, or your Blood Alcohol Content is above a .08 at the time of driving.

Our office will carefully review your case in order to ensure that the police followed all necessary procedures carefully and legally, and that all field sobriety tests were administered properly. If they did not, it is possible those results can be thrown out completely. If test results are admitted into evidence, though, we may decide to bring in our own expert witness to explain the results and shine a different light on the evidence for the jury. A failed breath test is not a reason to throw in the towel; it is all the more reason to hire an experienced DWI lawyer like Paul Darrow.

Paul’s experience as a former prosecutor brings a wealth of experience to his practice as a DWI/DUI attorney and he uses that knowledge and experience to fight for his clients! When it comes to defending those who are facing serious consequences of any type of criminal charge conviction, he is an asset to have on your defense team. Contact Paul today at (713) 641-5300.

When Should You Call a Defense Attorney? NOW-Don't Delay!

Call right away if you have been charged with a DWI. We can help from the earliest stages of a criminal case to the end. Being arrested or receiving a misdemeanor summons is the beginning of a very difficult journey for the accused.

Don’t talk to police or prosecutors without an attorney present. At Darrow Law, you can be assured of being believed, being treated with dignity, and being presumed innocent. When we get involved early on, there is a great deal we can do to avoid charges being filed, negotiate for reduced charges, or work out an alternative to jail time that may allow charges to be dropped later, once alternative intervention is completed.

Choosing the right attorney is one of the most important decisions you can make. Paul Darrow has the experience to prepare and aggressively fight your case, as well as the knowledge, skills, and relationships to successfully negotiate a favorable disposition.
