He graduated from the University of Houston Law Center early and became one of the school’s youngest graduates in 1996.

Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered
Q. Ive had two prior dwi in texas.i have been arrested for another one ten years later.they only charged me with a misdemea
A: Hire a lawyer immediately. They may or may not know about your prior convictions. If the convictions are valid, the State could refile the case as a felony.
Q. I got a DUI in September 2013, I haven't received a court date. What should I do. I live in Texas
A: The statute of limitations in Texas for a misdemeanor DWI is 2 years. If the State fails to file it within this period of time, the State will be barred from prosecuting you for the misdemeanor DWI. If it is a felony DWI, the statute of limitations is 3 years. What county did the DWI occur in? You may have a court date and not know it. Did you make a cash bond or a surety bond? Contact a DWI lawyer in that county for further information.
