Austin DWI

Stopped for an Austin DWI? It happens even to the most sober drivers. Policemen make mistakes too. We can help you with your DWI or DUI arrest, from faster and more economical jail releases/bail bonds to ignition interlock questions and more.


We specialize in helping clients recover from an Austin marijuana arrest. We provide professional and exhaustive legal services at a fair cost. This all may be new to you, but remember, we've been here before. When it comes to drug possession cases and other criminal charges, we anticipate and deflect the prosecution's moves before they make them.


We also assist clients who find themselves defending against an assault charge. Talking with a qualified attorney is the first step in putting your legal troubles behind you. We’re here to help. Financial assistance available: ask about flexible payment plans, credit options, and free consultations.
