James Makin (Of Counsel – Beaumont)
Gary Trichter has been defending citizens accused of DWI throughout Texas for over 35 years. Whenever he is asked to represent a citizen in Beaumont or Orange, he associates with Beaumont DWI attorney James Makin, who is Trichter & Murphy’s local lawyer in that area.
Gary and James have worked together for over 20 years now and have established a successful working relationship whereby each client gets the best of both worlds by the association and a great return on his or her monetary investment. James handles all preliminary and noncontested court appearances, whereas Gary handles all the contested court proceedings.
For example, Gary is always the lead lawyer in trials and evidentiary hearings, and Beaumont DWI attorney James Makin is always there to assist him. This representation structure offers the client a reduced fee while at the same time provides the benefit of being assisted by two superlative lawyers. Being local, James intimately knows the court and the prosecution’s personalities, i.e., the lay of the land, while Gary brings with him a reputation of being a scholarly gentleman and a highly skilled, effective advocate.
