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.

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.

I was in court today and the court told me that if it was not for Mr. Jones I would be in jail.If was not for Mr. Jones and the amazing Hanna, I would not be writing this review. I was arrested on a probation violation with no bond. He had the warrant lifted in a day and this was a few days before Christmas and you know that the county was short staffed. He was the best gift from Santa ever. Hanna held my hand and answered my 800 million questions and helped me with my fear. I knew I was in safe hands with this team. When I got home I received a ton of solicitation letters from other attorneys and their prices were outrageous. I assure you that you will get more than your moneys worth with Mr. Jones. Bonus is that he knows everyone in the system and how beneficial this is for you cannot be measured. Also, they take your phone calls! My previous attorney would not even when I needed clarification on stuff or when my court dates were changed.

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.

Originally, I had a different attorney that I met at my first court date. She said she was going to try to get me out on personal bond. I was denied personal bond with that first attorney. I was in jail for 2.5 weeks before Richard Jones came to visit me. He told me he would do his best. He said because of my situation there was a way to get me out, and he did. It was very reassuring. My case has been pending since then as a misdemeanor and last week I went to check in with pretrial services. My officer told me that I had missed a court date and there was a warrant. The charge had been enhanced to a felony because of my extensive criminal background in other states. They took me into custody and my pretrial officer called Richard Jones' office and told them. Richard Jones went to talk with the judge about getting me back out. I was only in jail for 3 hours before I was released. I would recommend Richard to anyone seeking jail release and representation on a criminal case.

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

DO NOT HIRE THIS ATTORNEY!!! He will prolong the process and will not keep in touch with you! You will be in the dark about your case the entire time! He does not return phone calls, emails or texts! Your only interaction will be at court ONLY!!! Even there he is short and says to call him at the office to discuss at which time you will NOT be able to reach him! He does not work for you! He works for the courts! He will take your money and promise all these things! Once your money is received, he is MIA. DO NOT USE THIS ATTORNEY if you are serious about winning your case or getting it reduced!!!!! WORST ATTORNEY EVER!!!!
