About Kenneth Vern Mitchell

I have been practicing since May 2018. On July 13, 2019, I separated from Houston Police Department and now focus practicing DUI/DWI defense in Harris and Montgomery Counties. I wanted to focus on what I already had a foundation in, and spending 13 years as a Houston Police Officer my knowledge is in criminal law and police procedure. Also, I know from personal experience how easy it is for someone to be wrongly accused of DWI or public intoxication (police officers sometimes use public intoxication as a catch all to lock someone up for the night). I myself have had three DWI test scares. The first two where in the Army. I joined the Army 4 months after turning 17 years-old. I was assigned to 3/62 Air Defense Artillery Battalion in 10th Mountain, Ft. Drum, New York. I joined the Army to have the qualifications to get on HPD without having college. My father was HPD, and all he talked about was the retirement. My goal was to get on HPD at 51 years-old with 55% of my salary and 10 years in the deferred retirement option plan. I knew I had to have a good record and good credit. In July of 2001, I was on my way to New York City with two other soldiers that where from there, and I wanted to see New York City and have a free place to stay. The two other soldiers had been drinking MD 20/20. One even asked if I wanted a swig but I told him “no”, because of being under 21. We were also traveling around midnight, it was a last-minute trip after being board in the barracks on a Friday night. I was pulled over by a New York State Trooper that smelled the MD 20/20. I denied drinking, however he had me perform the HGN test. Apparently, he was getting clues on HGN. I remember begging him for a breath test. Luckily, he had one, but was afraid to let me use it because I could contaminate it if I had been drinking. The trooper gave in and let me blow into his portable breath testing device, and I was given a parking ticket, which I thought would be $30 dollars, but turned out to be $80. I told my dad what happened, and that is when I discovered the officer should have not had me facing the flashing lights. Now that I defend DWIs, I realize how easily I could of went to jail, just to waste money and time to clear my name. I also now realize how evil many district/county attorney’s offices are.

I Still Stand With You


By Jonathan Dichter Continuing to Remember What Our Clients Really Need Some years ago, I wrote an article for a Washington State Defense Journal entitled "I Will Stand With You." I have received amazing feedback from it including a local public defense agency making it part of their required reading for new hires. Our world has changed since then - drastically as of...

New York Times Investigation: Breathalyzers are Unreliable Machines and Should Not be Trusted


By Kevin Bennett Breathalyzer devices can be found in every police station in the country. Law enforcement use them as indisputable proof of a driver's blood alcohol level, incorporati0ng them into evidence when prosecuting suspected drunk drivers. However, there is a growing body of evidence to suggest breathalyzers are not a reliable tool when it comes to measuring how intoxicated a...
