Houston Texas Drunk Driving Defense Law Firm

Jim Butler is one of the few attorneys in Houston to focus exclusively on drunk driving defense.

“I chose DWI because I really want to help people, My clients are good, hardworking people. When they come to me, they’re worried about the future—they’re afraid of losing their jobs, they’re concerned that their insurance rates will go up. My goal is to help these people return to normal, productive lives.”

Mr. Butler believes that while DWI laws are good laws that should be enforced, he also believes that many innocent people end up arrested. “Many people don’t realize that it’s perfectly legal for an adult in Texas to drink alcohol and drive—as long as that adult maintains his or her mental and physical faculties. And the problem with most field sobriety tests is that they don’t give you the whole picture—if a person is nervous or tired, or even if they have a medical condition, they might ‘fail’ a test, even if they’re not intoxicated.

Don't forget, all it takes is reasonable doubt to get your case dismissed.  I can help raise that reasonable doubt.

Houston DWI Lawyer, Criminal Defense Lawyer in Houston, TX and Texas Drunk Driving Defense Attorney

You are not guilty of a Texas DWI just because an officer says you are. Every day, Harris County juries acquit citizens accused of drunk driving.  

You've seen the signs throughout Houston:  Drink, drive, go to jail.  They make it seem cut and dry.  Well, it's not.  Let me decide how well you performed on the field sobriety tests.  Ask me to double-check your breathalyzer results.  Knowledge is power, and in DWI cases, my knowledge is your power.

It really isn't that hard to contest your DWI / DUI. But you do need to act now. In every DWI case that my law office handles, our first step is to request an Administrative License Revocation hearing to fight your potential driver's license suspension. Remember, you have just 15 days after your arrest to request a hearing to save your driver's license.


Call us today at (713) 236-8744, and we'll set up your initial consultation, where I'll walk you through your defense options for your specific case.
