Mastering Criminal Law Exclusively Since 2001 DWI / Intoxication Offenses

Fort Bend DWI Lawyer

Arrested for Drunk Driving in Fort Bend?

DWI - You Can't Afford

If you are facing charges for drunk driving, get a Fort Bend DWI attorney on your side. As a former state prosecutor, I recognize the severity of a drunk driving arrest, whether it is for misdemeanor DWI, felony DWI, felony intoxication assault, or felony intoxication manslaughter. I have prosecuted all of these types of cases.

Because I know how to put these cases together, I also know how to take them apart. Without proper representation, you could immediately lose your driver's license, be wrongly convicted, be subjected to expensive Department of Public Safety-imposed surcharges, and suffer a drastic increase in your automobile insurance for years to come. If you have been arrested for a DWI in Fort Bend, it is pertinent that you obtain the proper legal defense immediately.

Challenging Blood Toxicology Reports

I have personally cross-examined many blood toxicology experts, and I know what to look for in evidence, and what potential flaws could exist in a blood toxicology report. For example, certain physical conditions could influence a blood test. My experience in challenging this evidence and success rate in court can be a great benefit to you if you are accused of driving while under the influence of any pharmaceutical or "street drug." Cross examination is an art, and a great depth of understanding of the science behind the report is critical if you hope to gain ground in challenging a blood toxicology expert. I have the knowledge, skills and experience that can benefit you in this aspect of your case.

Ready for Trial

My goal is to dissect the State's case, expose police errors, and force the prosecutors to lay their cards on the table. Sometimes this will result in a reduced charge, such as reckless driving or obstruction of a highway; sometimes it will result in a total dismissal of all charges against you. To vindicate your rights, we may need to have a trial by jury, which I am totally prepared for as evidenced by my winning trial record. Please know that I will move forward with your case from day one as if your case was going to trial. That means tireless preparation on my part in order to cross-examine the arresting officer on his procedures for field sobriety and Intoxilyzer testing.

In addition to my vast experience in DWI trials, I decided to go the extra mile in defense of my DWI clients by voluntarily submitting to rigorous training in the administration of the standardized field sobriety tests promulgated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. During that 24-hour course, I learned exactly how to administer these tests and recognize the common mistakes that police officers make while giving these tests. At the end of the course, I was awarded a practitioner's certification, which is the same certification required of DWI enforcing peace officers. Let me use the knowledge I gained to show off my skills and put your cop through the wringer.

From my time as a prosecutor for the state of Texas, I developed good working relationships with my peers. I use that knowledge and network to negotiate the best deal possible or go forward and force the State to prove its case. I recognize that not all clients require legal services during standard business hours, so I make myself available evenings and weekends to residents in Fort Bend, Richmond, Rosenberg, Katy and the surrounding cities.
