Why Should I Hire A DWI Lawyer

Why Should I Hire a DWI Lawyer in San Antonio? 

All lawyers who practice trial law, either civil or criminal, can represent people in a DWI case. Even personal injury law firms may hire criminal lawyers to handle DWI cases because it will generate business for the firm until their next settlement is funded.

Fighting for My Clients for Over 40 Years

I represent many people who have had prior DWIs, and they are facing enhanced punishment because of their prior convictions. It is common for me to find that during their prior convictions their lawyers made serious mistakes. I show those mistakes to the judges and the prosecutors, and often I can get their current DWIs reduced from felonies to misdemeanors. In this way, I can often get my clients probation when otherwise they would be sent to prison. Doing this type of representation is not common, and often prosecutors and judges are quite surprised by it.

If you or a member of your family have been exposed to this type of problem, you should consider hiring a DWI lawyer like me. Also, you will be pleasantly surprised that my fees are competitive with other lawyers who represent people in DWI cases.
