Why is this important?

Well consider that in the entire State of Texas, there are over 67,000 licensed attorneys and there are only 826 Board Certified Criminal Attorney!! In Lubbock County, at last count, there are over 600 licensed attorneys and only 6 are Board Certified in Criminal Law — and one of these is a prosecutor! That means that less than 1% of all the lawyers in Lubbock County are criminal law specialists. In fact, hiring a board certified criminal lawyer means that your lawyer has satisfied various requirements that few lawyers (LESS THAN 1 % IN LUBBOCK) meet.

So What is a Criminal Law Board Certified Attorney?

An attorney who is Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Criminal Law must have experience in the preparation and trial of serious criminal matters. The attorney must also have extensive knowledge of state and federal constitutional law, evidence, procedure and penal laws involved in the trial of these matters. A relatively small percentage of all Texas lawyers are board certified in a particular area of specialization.

If challenged, the District Attorney must show

– The arresting officer made the arrest properly…
– You were properly advised of your rights…
– The equipment used to test your blood alcohol level was functioning properly…
– The person operating that equipment was certified to operate it…

If the District Attorney gets any information which would prove you innocent, as a skilled Lubbock defense attorney we can make him give up that information. And that’s where Stephen Hamilton, Attorneys At Law come in! Any of these items may be helpful in weakening the DA’s case against you and the related Texas DWI laws. What often appears simple can get very complex with respect to Texas DWI laws.

As your criminal defense attorneys we will insist that all information be provided so that we can walk you through all this information and discuss on how to proceed with your case. You need an attorney who knows how to guide your case through Texas DWI laws and the complexities of the Texas legal system. You need an experienced defense attorney with a proven track record.
