About Stephen Hamilton

Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, AV Rated, tried over 100 jury trials, and a published author, I wrote the book on DWI and Criminal law defense. Before you talk to ANY lawyer get a copy of my DWI Survival Guide, A Citizen’s Protection Manual for a DWI Arrest. While other lawyers “advertise” experience I will show you how my trial experience of over 100 trials can help in your case. Because my practice focuses on DWI defense and criminal law, I often speak and lecture to other lawyers about how to try a DWI case. Local media in cases and issues involving DWI or other intoxication issues has interviewed me. My goal is to focus on each case that I take and provide personal client attention. I try more cases in a year than most criminal lawyers try in ten years and I believe that is for several reasons. First, I like my clients. If I can help them in their time of stress I want to do whatever I can. Second, I like trials. I enjoy the stress that comes with being in trial. I believe that when I walk in that courtroom, as arrogant as this might sound, I am in charge and the goal is to help my client.

Discovery Requests in Drug Recognition Expert Cases


By Neil Halttunen In order to be successful in a case involving testimony by a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE), you must gather the same materials that were used when the government constructed their case.
