Hiring a Houston DWI Attorney: What to do first

Get Out of Jail

If you were the one arrested for DWI, then this has likely occurred already. If you know someone who has been arrested and they are still in jail you will want to get them out as soon as possible. A DWI attorney cannot generally help you with the bonding process so contact a Harris county bonding company or prepare to pay a cash bond. Some people may be eligible for a PR bond.  Start the bonding process as soon as you can.  Even after the papers are filed with the jail, it will take several hours before release will occur.

Get Your Vehicle Out of Impound

Another important issue that can quickly cause you a lot of expense after a DWI arrest is storage fees. If a car was towed to a storage lot as a result of the arrest, the storage lot will be charging ridiculous fees every day the vehicle stays there. If you do not have adequate information about locating the vehicle, you can contact the Houston Police Department at   http://www.findmytowedcar.com  or you can call 281-943-6720 to try to find the vehicle. This should be your last step before you sit down to get actual DWI defense lawyer started.
