Brownsville And South Padre Island Public Intoxication Attorney

If you have been charged with public intoxication (PI) in South Padre Island or anywhere in South Texas, it is important that you seek the advice of an attorney. Some people make the mistake of not taking these charges seriously. PI is a class C misdemeanor, which can result in a fine of up to $500. Repeat offenses can result in increasingly severe penalties.

A conviction for PI is also likely to show up on background checks by prospective employers, schools and even landlords. There is much more at stake in these cases than most people realize, and having a skilled defense lawyer can help to ensure that your interests are protected. At The Franke Law Firm, P.C., we provide public intoxication defense representation designed to protect your rights and your future.

Understanding Public Intoxication In Texas

Under Texas law, you can be charged with PI if you are intoxicated to the extent that you could present a danger to yourself or another person. Alcohol is not the only intoxicant that comes into play in these cases. Intoxication by prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs and illegal substances can all lead to PI charges.

When you hire our firm, we present a strong defense in an effort to avoid a conviction on your record. Whenever possible, we work directly with the prosecutor in an effort to obtain the best possible outcome on your behalf. We diligently pursue every available option to avoid a conviction on your record.
