An officer's testimony is considered evidence and theoretically you could be convicted of a DWI offense based only on his word. However, a jury must consider all the evidence to be presented and then weigh that evidence in regards to what is more believable. You need an advocate that can raise a reasonable doubt in regards to the veracity of the officer's testimony. I would strongly suggest that you hire an attorney that has tried DWI cases to a jury.

Yes, if the trier of fact (jury or judge) believes the testimony of the officer, that testimony is sufficient to convict. A jury is instructed that it can convict only if it finds that the state has proven its case "beyond a reasonable doubt". The jury then decides whether the state has met this burden. Choosing whether to believe or not believe the testimony of an officer is part of the jury's job.
