Lawyer Fighting DWI And Drug Charges For Woodville Residents And Throughout East Central Texas

Texas is an extremely punitive state when it comes to criminal convictions. A conviction for a second DWI will mean an automatic prison sentence, and while some states have relaxed their marijuana laws, you will likely receive a harsh punishment in Texas.

After spending a considerable amount of time on the other side of the courtroom, I can anticipate problems before they develop. I will thoroughly investigate your claims, evaluate any evidence and file motions to reduce or dismiss the charges.
