John Gilmore
(Of Counsel – South Texas)

    Your South Texas DWI Lawyer

    Since 1980, Gary Trichter has been defending people arrested for DWI all over Texas. In South Texas, Gary associates with John Gilmore, a Trichter & LeGrand local South Texas DWI lawyer in Nueces County.

    John and Gary have worked closely for many years helping clients leverage the experience of South Texas DWI attorney who aggressively manages non-contested court appearances while Gary, a DWI Specialist by the National College for DUI Defense, in Texas, takes care of all contested court proceedings.

    Since John is from South Texas, he has a keen understanding of the local counties’ judicial culture and players. From prosecutors to local law enforcement, they can strategically uncover weaknesses, tendencies and habits of the other side to mount a formidable defense. Together, they give you the best chance of saving your driver license and getting your life back.

    South Texas ALR Lawyer

    Refusing or failing the police chemical test means that they took your driver license and you’ll receive notice of your driver license suspension. It’s important that you hire your attorney and request an Administrative License Revocation or ALR hearing within 15 days of your arrest. If you don’t, your license will be suspended and you could lose an edge in your DWI case.

    The reason the ALR hearing is so important is that it burdens DPS with proving either probable cause or reasonable suspicion when the officer arrested you. During this process, your South Texas ALR attorney can preview DPS’s evidence that prosecutors will use in your DWI case. If DPS fails to prove probable cause or reasonable suspicion, you’ll win the hearing and your driver license won’t be suspended.
