Have you been arrested for DWI in Grimes County, Texas? If this is your second DWI offense, you may be facing harsh penalties.

He understands that defending these charges can be more difficult because the defendant has a prior conviction on his or her record, but he takes this in stride as he dedicates the necessary time and effort to representing his clients to the best of his ability.
