Criminal Defense Lawyer & Fort Worth DWI Attorney

The Fort Worth Lawyer who fights for you!

I believe in strong, effective representation and I believe that you should be entitled to trust that your attorney will be a zealous advocate for your rights. I will not simply assume your case cannot be won. I believe that advising you to plead guilty is a very bad mistake made by many attorneys. I believe in excellence, including excellent customer service. I will handle your case personally, and I will be there for you when you need me. If you ‘re in need of criminal defense for DWI or a bail bondsman in Fort Worth, The Law Office of Paul Previte is your answer.

Why Choose Me To Represent You?

You have been arrested and your reputation and clean record hang in the balance. When facing criminal charges there is no substitute for being represented by an experienced and aggressive trial attorney, and I have questioned police officers in hundreds of cases, both as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney. Unlike some firms that promise a “specialist” but allow less experienced associates to handle your case, I will handle your case personally as one of the most experienced Fort Worth criminal defense DWI attorneys and bail bondsmen in Texas.

I will handle your case personally.

Not all the consequences of a plea bargain are readily apparent. As the result of a plea bargain, you could lose your freedom, you could lose your license to drive, you could lose your right to practice your profession, you could lose your right to carry a weapon or hunt, and you could even be denied a place to live. Don’t let that happen. Let an experienced Fort Worth bail bondsman and DWI criminal defense attorney go to work for you.

My goal is to have your case dismissed.

Of course, just because you were arrested does not mean that you are guilty. If you elect to go to trial instead of accepting a plea for an offense that you did not commit, I stand ready, willing and able to take your case to trial. I will do my very best to convince a jury to find you not guilty.

Although I am not able to influence improperly or upon irrelevant grounds any tribunal, legislative body or public official, as a result of being chief prosecutor for 16 cities in the Fort Worth metro area, I have extensive experience trying traffic related offenses and questioning police officers. Most DWI arrests start with a seemingly innocent traffic stop. If we can prove the stop was illegal, you win your DWI case. Call The Law Office of Paul Previte to speak with an experienced Fort Worth criminal defense attorney and bail bondsman today.

If you are looking for a DWI Lawyer in Fort Worth, you have come to the right place! Additionally, I practice most areas of Criminal Defense including; Theft Crimes, License Suspension, Family Violence, DWI, Assault, License Suspension, Expunction Orders, Terminating Probation, Removing Interlock, First Time Drug Use, etc…

If necessary, I can meet you at night or on the weekends. You will not pay anything for the first consultation. During this FREE consultation, we will go over the facts of your case, and I will provide you with a detailed plan of attack that may result in your case being reduced to a lesser charge or even dismissed.
