San Antonio DWI Defense Attorney

Call Me Today At (210) 960-8066.

If you have been arrested for DWI or any other intoxicated related case, I will help you the same way that I would help a family member or a close friend. First, I want to make sure that there is nothing else happening that could threaten your liberty or your finances, and I would do what I can to stop that from happening. Limiting your legal involvement includes helping you keep your driver’s license, and I will tell you immediately what you can do in order to keep it. I believe that in most DWI cases the worst is already over in terms of your incarceration. There may be other consequences, but after you come to me there are many things that I can do to limit them.

People have a range of emotions about this event in their lives: fear, embarrassment, guilt, but after a time and after a few conversations with me about the future events in their case, they begin to adjust to the situation. Most people begin to feel more comfortable with the process. The most important thing is to trust that your lawyer knows what he is doing. For that reason, I encourage people to ask questions about their case and what I will be doing for defense.

My office is unique in that I also own a blood alcohol testing lab. I have a co-owner in the lab who is a PhD toxicologist. Dr. Pittman and I train lawyers about blood testing and the use of blood test results in trials. We have evaluated and continue to evaluate law enforcement labs in Texas. You might be surprised to find that these labs use state-of-the-art equipment but their results and methods are not state-of-the-art. They attempt to hide information from the defense so that their methods and ranges of error cannot be exposed. They refuse to disclose corrective actions which they have had to make during the ordinary course of laboratory work. However, no one is ever perfect - even state forensic labs! In any case involving intoxication with alcohol or drugs it is imperative to know the quality of the laboratory you are up against in the case. Make no mistake: state forensic labs work for the police.

Put My Extensive Experience To Work For You!

For more than 25 years, I have exclusively practiced DWI defense. I have had the opportunity to help many people clear DWI arrests from their records and have litigated DWI cases using an up-to-date electronic database from the Office of the Scientific Director of the Texas Department of Public Safety. This technology allows me to suppress breath tests and expose incompetence or fraud on the part of DPS breath test employees.

I am co-founder of Education Forensics, LLC, an educational blood testing laboratory. Dr. Thomas Pittman and I train lawyers about blood testing in criminal cases. I use this lab and Education Forensics to keep me skilled in the science of chromatography and to help me develop trial techniques in blood draw cases.

Preparation for jury trials is the best means of obtaining the desired result for my clients. I know that people do not necessarily want a jury trial, but in some cases it is unavoidable. I promise to attempt to resolve the case outside of the courtroom if possible, but I also promise to be ready for anything in the case including a jury trial.

I have had at least 100 of my appeals published in state and federal courts, and some are before the appellate courts at this time. Some of my successful appeals have helped other DWI lawyers in their trials. Opinions from my appeals are recognized and used by defense lawyers and prosecutors as well. With my extensive experience and track record of success, you can be confident in my ability to successfully resolve your complex legal matter.
