What You Should Ask Before Hiring A DWI Attorney

  • Feb 14 2019

Most people don’t know how to choose a DWI defense attorney.  Before hiring any attorney, you should ask the following questions:

  • How many DWI trials involving an accident have you won?
  • Have you actually won a breath test DWI trial?
  • Have you ever won a blood test DWI trial?
  • Will you request an ALR hearing and fight my driver’s license suspension?
  • Have you handled cases involving my judge, prosecutor and court staff?
  • Will you give me your cell phone number so I can call you directly?
  • Are you certified to administer the field sobriety tests?
  • What formal training have you completed regarding breath testing (Infra-Red spectroscopy)?
  • What formal training have you completed regarding forensic blood testing (gas chromatography)?
  • Are you an ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist?
  • How many years have you been practicing DWI defense?
  • Do you limit your practice to DWI and related matters?
  • How many dismissals do you have?
  • How many jury trials have you conducted?
  • How many ALR hearings have you conducted?

If you didn’t get a “yes” answer to all of these questions you are not talking to the “right” attorney.

I have defended DWI cases for over 23 years.  I am the only ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist in Travis County.  I always request an ALR hearing.  I have conducted over 300 jury trials and ALR hearings.  I have over 500 case dismissals.  I am available 24/7 including nights, and weekends. Payment plans are available.  I have fought and won DWI’s involving breath and blood tests in the following counties:  Austin, Bastrop, Brazos, Burleson, Colorado, Fayette, Fort Bend, Grimes, Harris, Hays, Karnes, Lavaca, Lee, Montgomery, Travis, Walker, Waller, Washington, and Williamson.
