Mark Lassiter got my DWI case dismissed. If it had gone to trial, I was absolutely sure that we would have won. Not because I didn't make a mistake or because I hadn't surrendered my rights to the arresting officer and given them the necessary evidence, but because Mark's absolutely phenomenal navigation of the process and anticipation of the pre-trial conduct of the prosecution rendered his readiness to dominate in the trial on my behalf unnecessary.
Do not leave your impending case to chance. Before my case was called, I had the opportunity to watch how other defense lawyers handled their business in regards to their upcoming cases. There wasn't one of them that I would have preferred to have on my side instead of Mark. One of them even threw away the opportunity that Mark had used to get my case dismissed.

Hi my name is Raul and I got a dwi and was recommended by a friend to mark Lassiter. Her cousin had hired him and was very happy with him and the outcome of the case in which they won and was also a dwi case. So I went to talk to mark about my case we reviewed it he told me what he thought of the case and what he could do for me. I was very happy and relieved about what we talked about now it was just a waiting game till this point. There were times where I had questions and was able to call him at anytime and he was more than happy to awnser any question that I had. He is a very knowledgable attorney I would recommend him to anybody with a DUI / dwi. The outcome of my case was found not guilty. Now to sum it up mark Lassiter is one heck of an attorney.

He handled an unjust ticket for me and was very thorough and on time with notices, etc. His communication was short and to the point without false fluffy words or promises.

I was arrested in March 2010 for suspicion of DWI, and had blown a 0.18. I retained Mark 3 days later and through his hard work and diligence my case was dismissed without my ever having to appear in front of a judge. His knowledge of criminal law is incredible, and he is very kind, and was incredibly respectful and encouraging throughout this entire harrowing process. Previous to this arrest I had never had so much as a speeding ticket and I came into this extremely scared and terrified of the long term implications of a DWI conviction in Texas, as Texas is not a state that allows adjudication and I am an RN who made one incredibly bad decision, but a conviction on DWI could cost me my license to practice. I chose Mark on the recommendation of several people whom I trust, and I am so glad I did! His staff is very courteous and helpful, and his track record is impeccable! I honestly didn't dare hope that I might be so fortunate as to get my case dismissed, but Mark came through for me with flying colors! Thanks to Marks knowledge and hard work I will be eligible to have this arrest expunged from my record in two years, and can relax knowing that my license to practice is safe. Mark was also always willing to hear me out and never tried to pressure me into anything I was uncomfortable doing, he returned my calls and emails within hours and did everything he could to reassure me that while there was a great deal of gravity to the situation I had landed myself in, that he would champion my cause. I made a terrible, terrible choice, and I am so grateful and fortunate the no one was hurt. I owe so much to Mark, and I will never be able to thank him enough for his hard work on my behalf.

I first came upon Mr. Lassiter after hiring another attorney that was, in my opinion, not pursuing all options. Mark Lassiter stepped in and within no time my DWI case was dismissed. I never felt nervous when Mark was in control of the case. Mark Lassiter will always return emails, phone calls and keep you updated of all progress on the case. I would gladly recommend Mr. Lassiter to anyone in need of good counsel.

So here you are looking into attorneys. You have my sympathy. Whatever has gone wrong in your life can be difficult to fix.
In my case, kids getting into drugs. It starts small and keeps growing until you find yourself looking for attorneys.
Along the way, I used multiple other attorneys. I haven't written a recommendation for any of them. For me, Mark was a shot in the dark where I believed, after speaking with him, that he would likely result in a more favorable outcome.
Well, my belief in Mark turned out to be extremely well founded. Further, he has several additional qualities that make working with him a pleasure. He is always patient explaining options, "what if" scenarios, and likely outcomes. My experience has shown him to be a superb negotiator as well.
To sum it up: if you need a criminal attorney, I believe Mark will be a pleasant surprise. Good luck with your case.

Mark Lassiter was my lawyer when I was facing a DWI charge. I have barely had a speeding ticket prior to this situation, so I was naturally panicked. Mark put me at ease from the moment I met with him. It was nice to have an expert in my corner and I truly do not know how I would've navigated the situation without him. The best part was that I was acquitted of the charge! Mark was a bulldog in the courtroom and a rock for me. His rates are more than fair to top it off. He is quick to return phone calls and emails. In fact, I was so pleased with Mark that I referred my younger brother to him.

I hired Mr. Lassiter for a complex criminal case procedure that was very important to my family. He knew just what needed to be done and got it done without my having to push him or follow-up. Great service and responsiveness. I recommend him highly.

If you are looking for legal assistance with a DWI charge, I would highly recommend Mark Lassiter. I was charged with DWI some time ago and did not know what to do. My friends and co-workers had never brought up this subject and due to the personal humiliation of the circumstances, I did not feel that I could approach them either. Thus, I was left to search Google websites for attorneys who handle cases of this nature when I came across Mark Lassiterâ€™s website. I was extremely impressed. I made contact with him with the normal trepidation of retaining an unknown individual for such a sensitive personal matter. Little did I know at the time of my good luck.
Ultimately Mark Lassister obtained a most favorable resolution for my case. During the course of this process, a couple of attributes I discovered about Mark Lassiter are as follows:
â€¢ He was very capable, and never lost focus of my case and best interests
â€¢ He was easy to talk to and actually listened and responded to the pros and cons of my standpoints
â€¢ He is a very personable and energetic person who was commited to getting the most favorable resolution for me
Inasmuch, I am sure that your retention of Mark Lassiter will result in a most beneficial partnership and the very best of results for you in your case.

Mark Lassiter handled my legal case in a very professional and proficient manner. From day one he was always available for questions and always returned out of office messages when needed. As a person that has never had to deal with any legal matters until 2010, this is a peace of mind that anyone can appreciate. Mark advised me of every step of the legal case process and even though my case never went to a trial, he kept me current and briefed of everything from the start to the final day of the case dismissal. I would highly recommend Mark Lassiter to anyone who is in need of any kind of legal defense. His persistence, professionalism, and experience from his prior legal roles definitely emerged and is a success story for me personally in my opinion

I contacted Mark Lassiter based on a personal recommendation. I had never needed an attorney for a criminal matter before, and felt confident in Mr. Lassiter as soon as I first spoke with him.
He immediately took charge of my case, appeared at hearings for me, and kept me informed of the status. He always responded quickly to phone calls and e-mails, and at each step of the process he clearly explained my options and the implications of each.
My case never went to trial, but I was even more impressed with his abilities, confidence, and attention to detail when I observed him in court representing another client.
I feel fortunate to have had an attorney of this caliber represent me, and highly recommend Mark Lassiter.

Mr. Lassiter was a excellent lawyer for me. 16 months ago I was arrested for a DWI. I could no longer keep my job if I was found guilty of the crime. I was found innocent of all crimes and my record is now clean. Thank you Mr. Lassiter.

I would like to make strong recommendation of Mark Lassiter based on my experience when I recently retained him for a felony DUI charge. I chose Mr. Lassiter on a personal recommendation of another client who spoke very highly of their experience with him.
From start to finish, Mr. Lassiter was a pleasure to deal with both in his professionalism and his confident demeanor. His experience with DUI was evident from my first meeting with him and I retained him on the spot. As a former attorney, I had a good idea what I was looking for and I felt confident that Mr. Lassiter fit the bill.
My experience did not disappoint. The case proceeded through the hearings exactly as Mr. Lassiter had described as the likely scenario in my initial consultation with him. Throughout the ordeal, Mr. Lassiterâ€™s communication was timely and his turnaround on questions quick. At no moment did I ever question that I had hired exactly the right attorney for my defense.
The result was the dismissal of my case and I am awaiting the statutory time frame to get my record expunged. I could not have been more satisfied with my representation in this matter.
