Gillespie County DWI Lawyer Who Fights for Your Rights

We understand how unfair police chemical and roadside sobriety tests are. And when you need a Gillespie County DWI Lawyer, choose one who will defend you using the science of DWI defense to try to gain a favorable outcome in your case. Since the early 1980s, Gary Trichter, founder of Trichter & LeGrand, has been creating reasonable doubt in the minds of juries in courtrooms across Texas by poking holes in the validity of police tests that help courts wrongly convict innocent people of DWI every day.

One of only 4 DWI Specialist by the National College for DUI Defense in Texas

Gary is one of only four board-certified DWI Specialists for NCDD in Texas, so he has a keen understanding of how police roadside tests work. Nationally known as a pioneer in DWI defense, Gary has spoken at more than 300 legal seminars where he has taught police, judges, prosecutors and fellow lawyers about DWI defense.

Gillespie County ALR Lawyer

Failing or refusing to take a breath or blood test will surely get you arrested and it could lead to you losing your driver license. Be sure to request an Administrative License Revocation or ALR hearing within 15 days of your arrest date. Gary is also a Gillespie County ALR lawyer who can help you throughout the ALR hearing process from scheduling through conclusion. Having an attorney present at your ALR hearing allows him or her to hear the evidence presented by the officer that will also be used in your DWI case. Remember, DPS must prove that the officer had either reasonable suspicion or probable cause. You will by default if he cannot prove either.
