TRICHTER & MURPHY PC ANNOUNCES NAME CHANGE AND WELCOMES NEW ATTORNEY TO FIRM

HOUSTON — June 8, 2017 —Houston DWI law firm Trichter & Murphy PC announced a name change to Trichter & LeGrand with the promotion of Leslie LeGrand to named senior attorney. Trichter & LeGrand is also pleased to welcome former Harris County assistant district attorney Aaron White to its ranks.

“Our name change recognizes Leslie’s enormous contribution to the firm and the stellar results he achieves for our clients,” said Trichter & LeGrand founding partner J. Gary Trichter. “Leslie is a talented, compassionate lawyer who works aggressively to protect our clients’ legal rights. Given how DWI is an opinion crime — a charge where the evidence is fully based on bogus testing methods and the opinion of the arresting officer — people accused need an attorney who understands the science behind an effective DWI defense and will use those facts to fight relentlessly for his [or her] clients. Leslie has always been that type of lawyer.”

LeGrand is a member of the National College of DUI Defense, the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and the Houston Criminal Lawyers Association. Before joining Trichter & LeGrand PC, he was assistant district attorney and felony prosecutor with Harris County. He has also served as assistant district attorney and a juvenile prosecutor in the 315th District Court, as well as chief misdemeanor prosecutor and misdemeanor prosecutor in Harris County Criminal Court.

Aaron White comes to Trichter & LeGrand with a high conviction rate as an assistant district attorney with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. As a prosecutor, he was integral in reconfiguring the Harris County post-conviction review where he examined petitions for forensic DNA testing evidence in cases that led to convictions for crimes such as capital murder and sexual assault.

“Aaron brings to Trichter & LeGrand an outstanding conviction rate that demonstrates firsthand how a prosecutor prepares and approaches criminal cases. This insight will serve our clients very well, and we are pleased to have such a skilled and passionate litigator on our team,” said Trichter.

“This day is significant for two reasons,” Trichter said. “First, I became Wyoming’s newest attorney and, second, it’s Buffalo Bill’s birthday.”

Besides Wyoming, Trichter is licensed to practice law in Texas, Alaska and Colorado. He is also one of only four defense attorneys in Texas who has earned the designation of “DWI Specialist” which means he is Board Certified DWI/DUI by the National College for DUI Defense–the sole entity approved by the American Bar Association to grant such a qualification (the Texas Bar Association does not have a board certification in DWI Defense but it does recognize the ABA DWI Board Certification).

Gary is known as a leader and one of the most successful DWI trial and appellate lawyers in the United States, and is rated “AV” by Martindale-Hubbell, one of the most respected lawyer rating entities.

According to Mr. Trichter, the swearing in ceremony was the cap to a “perfect day” beginning with him flying an R 22 II helicopter from Denver to Cheyenne and back to get sworn in.

“The weather was beautiful and the day has been filled with blessings,” he said.
