  • As your DWI Trial Guy™, there is no case too small or big when it comes to representing you against the charges that have been made in your name. In fact, at the Law Office of Troy P. Burleson, I am unwilling to settle for anything less. DWI defense is my only business and I strive to make sure that my efforts are successful in obtaining you the reduced or dropped sentencing that you are looking for. Obtained certification from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in field sobriety testing. This is the exact same certification that law enforcement officers receive after their training.
  • Certified in Mastering Scientific Evidence in DWI / DUI Blood and Breath Testing. These experiences have not only heightened my knowledge but allowed me to better defend my clients.

Routinely taking to trial between 45 and 50 cases a year (more than five times the standard amount for most practicing attorneys), there is little—if anything—I am unprepared to handle. From a first time DWI arrest to a charge with multiple offenses, I am highly capable at coming up with creative defense strategies. In fact, in only seven years, I have brought to trial more than 400 DWI cases, successfully representing hundreds of individuals throughout Texas.

Understanding the Severity of a DWI Charge

It is not at all uncommon for an arrest to be made for DWI after a police stop and field sobriety tests have been conducted. However, it is more than common for these tests to yield inaccurate portrayals of a person's true level of intoxication. While breath & blood tests produce more reliable readings, it is never out of the realm of possibility for a person's BAC to read higher than it truly is, especially when these tests are conducted inaccurately or the devices used for such readings have not been properly cared for.

These are crucial components that can make or break your case, but only if your attorney is familiar with the best ways to go about producing results given information such as this. Therefore, I cannot stress enough how vitally important it is to the outcome of your case, and hence your entire future, to ensure that you have obtained a defense lawyer that can effectively address all of the nuances of your case, from the most minute detail to the most obvious one.

Do you need a DWI attorney in Collin County, Texas?

Prior to coming to my firm, many clients are unaware that prosecutors are required to win no fewer than 70% of cases to maintain their jobs or get promoted. Since my time in practice, I have consistently won well over 70% of the cases I represent, making other prosecutors shy away from ever having to come face-to-face with me in the courtroom. Rather than lose a case in court, prosecutors are often eager to offer my clients lower plea bargains, case dismissals, alternative sentencing, or even bench trials.

I urge you to call my office. I offer a free case evaluation as a first step, because I want to provide a way for potential clients to understand where they stand before jumping into the legal process. Please do not wait to fill out the form to the best of your ability and send it my way. The sooner you contact my office the better it is for the overall success of your case.
