Texas – Galveston County DWI Attorney
Tad Nelson and his criminal defense team at Tad Nelson & Associates have extensive experience defending DWI cases, from first-time offenders to felony charges for a third DWI, including:
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI)

- Intoxication manslaughter (involuntary manslaughter)
- Underage drinking and driving (DUI)
- DWI with a child on board

The severity of these charges and accompanying punishments vary, depending on factors such as blood alcohol level, prior offenses, whether there was a child in the car, and the speed of the car. The penalties for conviction range from license suspension and jail time to steep fines and special DWI surcharges. Successfully defending people against DWI/DUI charges requires extensive knowledge of the laws, police procedures, and the consequences. Because laws and detection techniques are constantly changing, Tad Nelson attends frequent seminars, workshops, and classes on DUI defense throughout the country.
