Our attorneys have won a number of DWI cases that our clients were told by other attorneys were unwinnable. Our attorneys have found great success by rebuffing the science behind the tools used in assuming a DWI or DUI. Our attorneys have received extensive training related to the scientific evidence presented in DWI cases, meaning we have a great understanding of how the tools work. 

Instead of overloading on cases, we take a one-on-one approach to every case we take on, ensuring that we know you and your story on a personal level. We pride ourselves on striving for quality over quantity, and our track record reflects this. 

Two of our attorneys are prior police officers. One worked as an insurance defense attorney; another served as in-house counsel for trucking and brokerage companies. Their time spent serving in each of these positions has prepared them to fight for you and do their best to win your case.
