Recent Client Review

I can’t thank you and Amber enough for seeing that my case was dismissed. I was told “you should see him in court”. Having the opportunity to do so was a memory that I will never forget. You had the DA scrambling the entire court room laughing and the judge. Mr. Nelson.,, simply put you know the law and apparently every aspect that needs to be covered down to making the prosecution team look incompetent. That E.F. Hutton commercial when he speaks everyone listens. In the court room your name is mentioned and the attorneys start looking around. I believe several occasions the judge stated Amber are all these people with you? And you smerked and said yes your honor. Tad you and your staff did an amazing job, I would suggest if anyone needs or knows of anyone who needs legal counsel to contact Tad Nelson!! as they say it ain’t braggin if you can back it up!

Regardless of your Guilt or Innocence

Regardless of whether you think you’re guilty or innocent of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), having the right defense attorney on your side can make the difference between being convicted (with ease) by Harris County prosecutors, serving the maximum possible prison sentence in the event that the jury comes to a guilty finding during a trial, being allowed to take advantage of deferred adjudication options for Houston DWI offenders, or being acquitted of all allegations of criminal charges entirely. Only an attorney that’s trained and educated in scrutinizing the nuances applicable to your case will be able to make a sound judgement.

We Fight Harris County Prosecutors

While no Houston DWI attorney can make guarantees about the potential outcome of any given case, we can say that even if you’re admittedly guilty, working with DWI lawyers on our level of experience & training, or better, will appeal to your best interests. Our veteran legal team could even make the difference between you serving 2 years to 20 years TDCJ (in the case of serious felony DWI offenses) and a case dismissal. A lifetime of hard-luck as a result of Driving While Intoxicated charges appearing on your criminal record; defining you as a criminal, can be avoided.
