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 20 years of practice. I am a member of the National College of DUI Defense, the DUI Defense Lawyer's Association, the Williamson County Bar Association, the Texas DWI Lawyers Association, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyer's, and the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer's 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 enforcement 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 have attended the same courses that law enforcement does on how to administer the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs) and have been certified to administer SFSTs. I have also received training as a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE).
Types of DWI Cases I Handle
I tackle all kinds of DWI charges, ranging from child endangerment to drug-related DWIs. I also work with out-of-state clients who have been arrested for DWI while visiting Texas.
Other types of DWI cases I handle include, but are not limited to:
- Underage DUI
- First DWI offense
- Extreme DWI
- Second DWI offense
- Third Offense or More (Felony DWI)
- DWI accidents
- Intoxication Manslaughter
- Marijuana-related DWI
- Intoxication Assault
I know that these charges are severe, daunting, and can have lifelong effects on you, criminally, financially, and personally, which is why I put forth every effort to ensure that you and your rights are protected. If you are still wondering if you need a lawyer, contact me at 512-457-5200.
I will walk you through the entire DWI process, from the arrest to the decision of plea bargain vs. trial to any post-trial relief that may be available to you. I am on your side. I am here to help, and I am only a phone call away at 512-457-5200.
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. Contact me now at 512-457-5200 to schedule your ALR Hearing.
Challenging Evidence in Your DWI Case
Texas enforces strict drunk driving laws. In Williamson County and jurisdictions throughout the state, both police and prosecutors aggressively go after impaired drivers and penalize them harshly. Just because these cases are aggressively policed, prosecuted, and severely punished, does not mean that you do not have options. I can defend you with equal vigor and challenge the government's case in court.
Remember, law enforcement officers must have reasonable cause to stop you, probable cause to arrest you, and they must comply with proper protocol and procedure. I investigate and review every aspect of your arrest to ensure that your rights are protected and to provide you with the best possible outcome.

If law enforcement has arrested you or someone you know for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) in Williamson County, Texas, contact me at 512-457-5200. A DWI conviction not only affects your ability to drive, but it also acts as a black mark on your criminal record. Criminal penalties you could face might include jail, hefty fines, probation, and community service. Fortunately, many avenues of defense are open to you.
I can attack every aspect of the state's case. I have the training necessary to fight to prove an inaccurate blood alcohol reading, faulty breath tests, unlawful police stops, and any other type of evidence the state may use in your case. I have a record of success in using these strategies to get my client's charges reduced or outright dismissed.
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. When you try to sell yourself and your services in a client meeting, on your website, or over the phone during a telephone consultation, that can be difficult to answer. Both my fantastic office staff and my children mock me for the way, out of habit, I quickly rattle off how I have practiced criminal law for twenty years. They joke about how I mention my training and experience as a former prosecutor. They laugh that I always talk about the over 100 cases that I have tried and brag about the complex jury trials I have won. They joke they could do the consultation for me.
The truth is none of that separates me from 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. They are also going to have similar fantastic reviews. Criminal defense is a results-driven profession.
Along with achieving great results, one of my primary focuses is creating a comfortable and rewarding client experience. Every day I am working to improve the technology and communication platforms we use at our firm to make both our lives easier and clients' lives less complicated.
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 awkward and uncomfortable explaining complex emotional, mental, and sometimes spiritual situations to clients sometimes when all they want to hear is "not guilty" or "case dismissed." Often in our world, the client hires you to make the problem go away, not to confront or deal with the problem head-on.
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 ten 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 vowed to represent my client, within the confines of legal ethics, to the best of my ability.
Saying that 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 truth of the matter related to a dismissal, reduction, or trial I just won. The cases that make me the proudest are the ones 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 instances 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 essential 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 genuinely "reprehensible," and those folks are not generally facing DUI allegations, all you usually can do is damage control and sometimes just try to keep them alive. My goal is simple. I try to help good people get through the complicated 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 challenging situations of your life.
One of my favorite quotes comes from the television show, The West Wing.
"This guy is walking down a street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep, and 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 because we have been there before, and we know the way out. Call the office anytime at 512-457-5200 or reach me personally on my cell at 714-403-9120 and let us help you get out of the hole.
