Austin County DWI Attorney

Austin County DWI attorneys who knows how to fight

With so much to do in Austin County, people may find themselves needing an Austin County DWI attorney like DWI Specialist Attorney Gary Trichter. As one of only four DWI Specialists in Texas, he’s Board Certified DWI/DUI by the National College for DUI Defense. The NCDD is the sole entity approved by the American Bar Association to designate such a title. That’s why The Texas Bar Association recognizes only the ABA DWI Board certification–because it has no board certification of its own.

Head of the class in DWI

As a DWI Specialist, Gary knows the science behind the flaws in police DWI testing methods and how to explain those flaws to a jury. He has also spoken at more than 280 legal seminars in 30 states teaching fellow attorneys, judges and prosecutors about the law—especially DWI. Gary has also argued groundbreaking DWI cases and co-authored Texas Drunk Driving Law, a textbook on DWI used by lawyers throughout the United States. It’s no wonder he is considered one of the leading DWI attorneys in the county.
