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.

Dallas DWI Attorney David Burrows, who works closely with Gary Trichter to represents DWI cases in Dallas, Tarrant, Collin, Denton, Rockwall, and Kaufman counties, knows the courts and police in the Dallas-area. He is author of two DVDs: “DWI Trial Preparation” and “Voir Dire: Psychology, Strategy and Target Questions.” He is a sought-after speaker on DWI defense issues throughout Texas. He was President of the Texas DWI Lawyers Association and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Southern Methodist University  and received his J.D. from Baylor Law School.
