DWI. Whether this is your first offense or you have been charged in the past, you know you face a serious charge with serious costs and penalties. The lawyer you turn to for help can make a significant difference in how the next few days or weeks will affect the rest of your life.

At the Law Office of Osvaldo J. Morales III P.C., in Edinburg, we have been helping people charged with drunk driving and related charges in the Southeast Texas Rio Grande Valley for more than 18 years.

Attorney Osvaldo Morales
