Law enforcement inflicts a number of penalties for those that are found guilty of drinking and driving over the legal limit. The repercussions can include a number of outcomes, including the installation of an ignition interlock device. This will monitor your ability to drive and restrict you from driving with a certain level of alcohol in your system. More on this device can be found on the link below.

DWI law is an important area to gain defense in. There are many types of cases that can come and charges can include more than just driving with an increased blood alcohol content level. Under certain conditions, they may be increased to a felony and this will mean that those accused can face extensive repercussions. If you are charged, protect your future by contacting our office as soon as you can.

In a recent column in the paper someone stated that with current blood testing it is scientifically possible to convict someone of DWI to an extent that there could be no doubt as to guilt. His is the unconsidered view that persons charged with DWI face every day. This view is perpetuated despite the frequent stories of falsified data coming out of state science labs. Worse than even the falsified data is the culture that allows crimes like falsification to occur in the first place. Who is watching these people? Where is the oversight? Where is the scientific pride in doing a job the right way? When you or someone you know is charged with DWI, I'm here to make sure the testing is done the right way. I'm here to make sure the machines are calibrated properly and the blood is treated in the correct fashion.

When an officer suspects that you have been drinking and driving, they may ask to administer a number of tests. Even if you do not come out clear through the results, there are ways to defend against allegations. There are a number of reasons that people wrongfully fail these tests and this alone should not be enough to convict you. Find out more about breath and blood tests on the site of our firm.

Crack Rental in the News

KLBJ radio recently reported that a man took a Chevy for a test drive and didn't return it. A few hours after he drove off, he reported the vehicle stolen. Police later found the vehicle being driven by another person who said she bought it for 2 rocks of crack. The person who took the car has been charged with theft and is in jail. Why theft and not unauthorized use of a motor vehicle (UUMV)? If the vehicle is worth more than $20,000 then the offense carries up to 10 years in prison while the maximum for UUMV is only 2 years in the state jail. Lessons we learn from this offense - don't wait two hours into a test drive to report the car stolen. Next, someone who buys a car for crack is not your friend and will rat you out in a heartbeat if they get arrested for UUMV. Then you may be looking at drug charges as well as theft charges. Third, crack rentals do happen and people frequently make up stories about their car being stolen rather than admitting to their mommas or girlfriends that they sold the car for drugs. Sell or rent a car for crack and you'll probably get caught. If you get caught, you will need a good lawyer.

THE BOTTOM LINE: I had a misdemeanor 2 charges brought against me that were false. Richard got them dropped. He also got my seized property returned to me. Yes, at times communication left something to be desired but in the end he made it happen. He is a busy guy and he is also working hard for others. Know when your time comes he will work hard for you.

Richard Jones and his legal assistant Hanna did a wonderful job for me, he was court appointed for me however if I had money I would be happy to pay for their service...after 1 and 1/2 yrs he was able to get my case dismissed so I am back to a perfect record except the arrest record of course all of which should have never happened in the first place...communication with them was excellent, I feel I was very lucky to have Richard and Hanna work on my case....Thank you both very very much

Mr. jones was great at representating me on my legal case and took care of me through the whole court proceedings and finishing it up with a 150 percent satisfaction. As for him being a family man was very understanding in my cituation and handle my case very well and i recommend him to anyone in the austin and surrounding area.

So in 2013 we were thrown into the worse circumstances of our lives. My husband (like something straight out of a movie) was falsely accused of committing a 2nd degree felony that happened in Austin when we were living out of state. After finding out about the warrant, we started looking for lawyers (it was a suggestion from a friend) we were turned away from so many lawyers in Austin due to it being a high profile case, with a lot of controversy. A female lawyer from Austin had even went as far as to rudely say that she would not help my husband because he was a criminal (without looking into the case) (isn't that what lawyers do, they help innocent people, and criminals) After a few days of hunting for a lawyer, we got a call back from Hanna, who then connected us with Richard. They believed in us, and in my husband. They were great to work with, very hands on, understanding, and helpful. Richard Jones is a busy man, so the previous comments, people need to realize how busy lawyers really are, working around the clock. After 7 hard long months, the case against my husband was dropped. We wouldn't be able to share this story if it wasn't for Richard presenting the prosecutor with the truth, and working hard for us!! We are thankful and very blessed to have worked with Richard and Hanna. They are kind, loyal, diligent people. Thank you both for all of your help :)

Richard has been handling a charge against one of our kids who did something stupid. During the process he provided us with very good advice on how to help our situation, he achieved the results that we hoped for, and has been cost effective throughout the ordeal. While we had better communication than maybe some indicate in other reviews, I can see where some of the points could have validity at times, but I think that's part of the trade-off you get when you look for an attorney that can take care of you legally while still being affordable. I'm sure that I could find an attorney who will respond within an hour or two to every call (when not in court) and will spend as much time as I want talking to me - but I would pay a hefty hourly rate for it. If you can accept that Richard has many clients that he's serving to keep your own costs low, and be a little patient at times, my experience is that you'll get great results and you'll still be able to pay your bills afterwards. I'm grateful to both Richard and Hanna for taking care of our family the way they have.

DO NOT HIRE HIM!!! The prior review was not maid by me, but it was spot on. I wish I had seen it before I hired him. Freeman Symon is an SEO hired reviewer (click his name for yourself) so take that for what it is worth! I have unfortunately had to hire a few criminal defense attorney's and been court appointed to at least 3. This was by far the worst experience ever. Even worse that any court appointed attorney. His poor assistant Hannah has got to get some help. Richard has her so over-run, you can not expect anything from either of them. Unfortunately for her, he does not keep up with his clients and she is left to try to clean up the mess. You will regret hiring him if you do. He does NOTHING that he absolutely does not have to do.
