Jason & his assistant Alex are amazing. Jason will tell you how it is and won’t give you false hopes on  what he can do for you. Jason went above and beyond for me on my DWI charge and unlawful carrying of a weapon.

Want To Clean Your Record? Our Criminal Defense Team Can Help

If you have been convicted of a crime, our Travis County law firm can help you clean your record through either expungement or non-disclosure.


Expungement erases certain convictions and arrests from your criminal record, and allows you to say you have no criminal record. If your record gets expunged, you are not required to disclose the charges while applying for a new job or while in court. However, not every charge is eligible for expungement. Our attorney will review your charges and determine if expungement is possible or if non-disclosure is the best option.


Non-disclosure allows your record to be sealed. Any entity, like law enforcement, courts, or jails, holding onto information about the charges on your criminal record cannot release that information. This makes applying for jobs or buying property easier.

Our Austin Team Fights For You Contact Us for a Free Case Review

When you're facing criminal charges or looking to clean your record, you need an attorney you can count on. Our Travis County legal team cares about each client and fights to help them achieve the best possible outcome in their case. Having a dedicated team from the start helps increase your chances of overcoming these criminal charges and getting your life back.

"I'm very thankful." Read About Our Client's 5-Star Experience

To whom it may concern I highly recommend Jason Trumpler  if you need a great attorney and find yourself in a situation beyond your control. He kept me informed and worked very hard on my case and got it dismissed, if you're a veteran and/or civilian he will work hard to represent your case I'm very thankful for everything he did. Gustavus Chisholm

How Much Can I Expect To Spend when I Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney?

Client raising their hands

The cost of our attorney taking on a criminal defense case can range from $2,500 to $50,000. Your cost will depend on the severity of the case, the type of crime, the number of offenses, and whether your case goes to trial. For example, a first-time DWI offender with no aggravated charges can expect to pay less than a third-time DWI offender charged with causing an injury. 

While the cost of an attorney can be significant, it is far more affordable than extended jail time or steep fines. However, Mr. Trumpler also understands the financial stress that facing these charges can put on you and your loved ones. That is why he works to resolve your case as quickly as possible while still being able to achieve the best result.
