    Fight for your rights after a DWI arrest

    You may have heard that Texas is one of the toughest states when it comes to DWI punishment in the country. Because of the still penalties and fines that include, but aren’t limited to losing your driver’s license, jail sentence, and penalties as well as fines, you need to have the most aggressive defense for your first offense DWI. The penalties and fines become much harsher with a second or third DWI offense.

    DWI Specialist J. Gary Trichter knows how police use fake science to convict innocent people of DWI. As one of just four DWI Specialists in Texas, he has been recognized by the National College for DUI Defense, the only entity the American Bar Association recognizes for this designation. Gary’s credentials mean that he has trained and completed hundreds of hours of coursework on the true science in how to defend someone wrongly accused of DWI or DUI.
