About James Butler

About me


My name is Jim Butler and I’m an experienced Houston DWI Defense Attorney in my 22nd year of practice. I have a record of success in the courtroom which reflects the amount of hard work and effort I to put into every case I handle. I provide high level DWI representation for an affordable flat rate fee . I offer  free consultations by phone, but I prefer face to face. My office accepts credit cards as a form of payment, and in some cases we can arrange payment plans. My office is conveniently located four blocks from the Harris County Courthouse, near Minute Maid Park. I  can be reached by calling (713) 236-8744. I’ve been at this number for 20 years, and I will continue to be here for you.
