Houston DWI Attorney, Harris County DWI Lawyer

Top Harris County DWI Lawyer

Top Harris County DWI Lawyer who will fight for you.

For years, Harris County has had one of the highest rates of alcohol-related traffic deaths in the United States causing the county to invest thousands of dollars in a DWI task force. This activity, which has included adopting No-Refusal Weekends, has resulted in hundreds of innocent people being arrested for DWI. If you need a Harris County DWI lawyer who will aggressively fight for you, call the office of Trichter & Murphy at (713) 524-1010 24/7 to speak to an attorney.

True DWI Specialists to defend you

Trichter & Murphy is home to three of only four DWI Specialists in Texas. This designation is granted by the College of DUI Defense and is the only accreditation recognized by the American Bar Association. The Texas Bar Association does not have a designation like this. As a DWI Specialist, they understand the science of DWI defense and how it can debunk the faulty chemical and road side tests administered by law enforcement.

It’s important to remember that you are innocent until PROVEN guilty. You may think that the State has an insurmountable amount of evidence against you–from video tape showing you performing unfair roadside tests, inaccurate results from breath or blood tests. But with a DWI Specialist on your side, you still have a chance of defending your case successfully.
