Have you been arrested and charged with intoxication assault or intoxication manslaughter in Houston or anywhere in Texas?

Intoxicated assault and intoxicated manslaughter are extreme forms of DUI charges, but these charges can also involve accusations of the use of a deadly weapon or other felony situations such as endangerment to a child.
An intoxication assault conviction can mean up to ten years in prison. Intoxication manslaughter carries punishments ranging from two to 20 years in prison. The charge of assault or manslaughter depends on whether bodily injury or death occurred as a result of your DWI accident. Add to these worst-case scenarios fines that can rise as high as $10,000 and you face consequences that you want to avoid at all costs. There are even mandatory jail sentences for those who receive probation for these offenses. Your DWI defense should be the very best you can afford.
Ms. DeBorde collects mountains of information — anything that can support your side of the story. She carefully examines hostile witnesses to test their credibility and has a jeweler's eye for inconsistencies in testimony that can help your cause.

Long story short: If arrested for intoxication assault or intoxication manslaughter, you should not talk to anyone on site or thereafter. Not the police or prosecutors, not the health care professionals, no one but your defense lawyer.
