I've Personally Handled Over 5,000 DWI Cases
I have successfully resolved over 5,000 DWI/DUI cases in Texas and California in my nearly 20 years of practice. I am a member of the National College of DUI Defense, the DUI Defense Lawyers' Assocition, the Williamson County Bar Association, the Texas DWI Lawyers Association, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers' Association. I have tried over 100 DWI cases before juries in both Texas and California as a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney. I trained law enforcment when I was a prosecutor and a defense attorney on how to conduct DWI investigations, write reports, and testify in court. I also trained state chemists to do the same. I hate attended same courses that law enforcement does on how to adminster the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs) and have been certified to administer SFSTs. I have also received training as a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE).

You Only Have 15 Days to Save Your License
Did you know that you only have fifteen (15) days to contest the automatic suspension of your driver's license after being arrested for drunk driving? When you hire me, you will have representation at your ALR hearing to fight to ensure that your driving privileges are fully protected.
Challenging Evidence in Your DWI Case
Texas enforces strict drunk driving laws. In Williamson County and jurisdictions throughout the state, impaired drivers are prosecuted and penalized harshly. This does not mean, however, that accused drivers don't have options to defend themselves and challenge the government's case against them. Law enforcement officers must have reasonable cause to stop you and probable cause to arrest you, and they must comply with proper protocol. I personally investigate and challenge every aspect of your arrest to ensure your rights are protected and to secured to ensure the best possible outcome.

Why Hire Williamson County DWI Defense Attorney Jason Trumpler and Not Someone Else?
People often ask me what separates your firm, or you as a lawyer, from this other lawyer or law firm up the street. While you are trying to "sell" yourself and your services in a client meeting, on your website, or over the phone during a telephone consultation that is a difficult question to answer sometimes. Both my amazing office manager, Jessica, and my children mock me for the way, out of habit, I quickly rattle off my impressive number of years practicing criminal law, my former prosecutor experience, and the over 100 jury trials along with the difficult verdicts and the recent results in the relevant county rather than answering a pretty straight forward question.
The truth is none of that separates me from the many great lawyers in Central Texas. The great ones are going to have the background, they are going to have the trials, and they are going to get the results. This is a results driven profession.
What Jessica, who has been with me on and off for almost ten years, has really tried to get me to focus more on, is creating a more comfortable experience for the client. Everyday Jessica and I are improving the technology at our firm to make both our lives easier and your lives, as clients, easier.
Secondly, and I think what truly separates me - and the people that work with me at my firm - from other firms - is that we care about our clients from top to bottom. It can be difficult and uncomfortable explaining complex situations to clients sometimes when all they want to hear is "not guilty" or "case dismissed" because often times in our world the client hires you to make the problem go away not actually confront or deal with it.
I was reminded of this the other day when something I wrote back in 2014 popped up on my Facebook Timeline. A client had been sober for 10 years and it was the anniversary of her sobriety. I handled her case, and I achieved a good result. During my representation, I also had a very uncomfortable talk where I suggested that she might need some help and pointed her in the right direction. On the 10th anniversary of her sobriety, she sent me a note, which she does every year on the anniversary of her sobriety, and this was the response I posted.
"Many people that walk into my office are worth saving and when I say saving, I don't necessarily mean getting all of the charges dismissed, but I do fight to get the charges dismissed because that is my duty, that is what I swore to do. I swore to represent my client, within the confines of legal ethics, to the best of my ability.
That being said, my proudest moments as a defense attorney are not necessarily the cases I have won because innocent is such a strong word and not always the case with respect to the case we just won. The cases that make me the proudest are the one's where I make a difference. I help an alcoholic or drug addict find sobriety, I help guide a person through difficult circumstances in their lives outside of court because there is no one there to guide them, cases where I help people keep their jobs, and even the cases where I have helped guide a very sick person to come to grips with what he or she has done.
The long letters, occasional newspaper write up, and website reviews, while all appreciated and important to my continued success usually take a back seat in my mind to a simple, softly spoken, thank you. That is what I tell my kids that daddy does and that is how when I am not suffering from insomnia I sleep just fine. Good people make mistakes that have criminal consequences all of the time. And with the truly reprehensible, all you usually can do is damage control and sometimes just try to keep them alive. All I can do is try to help these good people through the very difficult criminal justice process and hopefully we are both better for it..."
I want to be your lawyer. I want to help guide you through one of the most difficult situations of your life.
One of my favorite quotes comes from the television show The West Wing. It is based in principles taught at Alcoholics Anonymous.
"This guy's walking down a street, when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep, he can't get out. A doctor passes by, and the guy shouts up "Hey you! Can you help me out?" The doctor writes him a prescription, throws it down the hole and moves on. Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up "Father, I'm down in this hole, can you help me out?" The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by. "Hey Joe, it's me, can you help me out?" And the friend jumps in the hole! Our guy says "Are you stupid? Now we're both down here!" and the friend says, "Yeah, but I've been down here before, and I know the way out."
I pride my firm as having the type of people who jump in the hole and help you find your way out. Call the office anytime at 512-457-5200 or reach me personally on my cell at 714-403-9120.
