Along with the basic types of DWI defined by the state, there are a number of variations of the crime that yield serious consequences. Our firm can represent clients for all types of cases and issues regarding DWI.

Attorney Martinez is Certified in Field Sobriety Tests

Field sobriety tests assess a person’s motor skills and “divided attention” abilities to determine if they are intoxicated. Herman Martinez is one of the few DWI lawyers in Houston, Texas who is certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to administer field sobriety tests like the police officers that make DWI arrests. The Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus, Walk and Turn, and One Leg Stand are the typical tests that are used when someone is being investigated for DWI. If these tests are not done properly, you can use them as defense in your trial. By hiring a DWI attorney that is certified to administer these tests and who was also a former Chief Prosecutor, you are truly getting invaluable legal experience in this area of the law.
