The Prosecution’s Assessment of the Case

Highly recommend! Colin thank you so much for your dedication. Thank you for actually wanting to sincerely help and give us the best outcome we can get. You are by far one of the best. You helped my bf reschedule a court date after it was missed and was able to give him the same plea deal. Thank you again Colin.

Absolutely wonderful! Collin was fantastic. He really fought for me and I am very happy with the outcome of my case. He really fought for my case to have a positive outcome and was supportive, easy to get ahold of when needed and walked me through everything. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone!!

I would highly recommend Hoeller McLaughlin. They helped my husband on a probation violation case and did an excellent job. Dustin Trammel was our attorney and he communicated with us and was supportive and helpful throughout the process. Very good legal service and would recommend this firm.

Colin by far has been one of the BEST attorneys in Ft. Worth. His dedication and attentiveness really shows not only in court but with the client and family. Great communication, easy web portal and friendly staff. 5 stars are NOT enough. Thank you Colin

Stephanie Alvarado

I can not say enough about how grateful I am that Dustin Trammel was my attorney! Having no experience with court proceedings, Dustin explained everything and stayed in touch with me the entire time. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney! Very highly recommend!!

A Fort Worth DWI Defense Attorney on Understanding how the Prosecution Assesses its Case

Not all driving while intoxicated cases are alike; the evidence available to the prosecution is stronger in some cases than others, and every case has its weaknesses. If you find yourself facing a DWI charge, an experienced DWI lawyer may be able to analyze the evidence, glean clues from the prosecution and determine the best course of action.

Keeping One’s Ears Open

Defense counsel can learn much by simply listening; many prosecutors reveal their hands and case strategy as a matter of course during informal discussions.

Watching how the Case Progresses

The manner in which the district attorney pursues the case speaks volumes. If he or she is flooding the court with motions and propounding large amounts of discovery, there is a high probability a trial is contemplated.

Understanding the Intangibles

Knowing who is handling the case is important. A new D.A. may be looking to stand out with a victory in court and a more seasoned prosecutor with a heavy workload may be looking for a respite from the grind of yet another trial. The difference matters.

Settlement vs. Trial

Although the vast majority of cases do not go to trial, there may be some reasons why this option is considered. Given all the individual facts and circumstances of your case, your DWI lawyer will recommend a course of action to optimize the outcome of your case.

Do not make the mistake of automatically concluding that an arrest for DWI must necessarily lead to a conviction. You have Constitutional guarantees and a presumption of innocence.
