Mr. Butler and his assistant Kristen are the best! Yes, he is a bit expensive but worth every dime. My daughter was arrested for a DWI. She is a good kid and had never been in trouble before, not even a speeding ticket. The evidence against her was not good. She had almost double the legal limit when she took the blow test and they had a video. The video was not the problem, it was that blow test she took. But Mr. Butler got the blow test thrown out and the case was eventually dismissed. He works from the point of view of trying to get the cases dismissed and not just getting the "best deal". It took over six months and my daughter did have to show up for docket call several times but Mr. Butler was always there and he always took the time to explain to her (and me) what was going on. He was quick to return phone calls and emails to answer any questions that I had (and I had a lot). His assistant Kristen is just as good. I could call her up anytime and she was always there to answer questions or just listen. They both make you feel at ease and understand what a difficult time this is. Do not look for any other lawyer, Mr. Butler is your best choice, hands down. You would be foolish to look elsewhere!

After being arrested for DWI in earlier this year I knew I needed to find a lawyer fast. I looked through a copy of Houstonia magazine that had a list of the top lawyers in Houston. I met with several of the DWI lawyers, but after speaking with Mr. Butler I knew he would be my man. He seemed much more confident and knowledgable than the others I had spoken with, and this helped ease my nervousness. He made me feel like I actually had a chance to beat this thing. I had refused a breathalyzer and a warrant was issued to draw my blood. My BAC came back over the .08 limit. Even when I thought it was hopeless, Mr. Butler never stopped believing we could win. He won my ALR hearing, so I got to keep my driver's license with no restrictions, and he also fought to keep an interlock device out of my car. Mr. Butler and his legal assistant, Christin, were always available if I needed to talk or had any questions about my case, and they always kept me up to date on everything that was happening. They really care about their clients. After several stressful months and a few resets, Mr. Butler got my case DISMISSED! I was so happy. Mr. Butler will be handling my expungement as well. I HIGHLY recommend James Butler if you find yourself with a DWI charge. He is the best! Thank you Mr. Butler!

I hired James ten months ago. he did an amazing and professional job with my case. he was very knowledgeable and understanding of my case. After being arrested for my 1st DWI in late june I thought my life was over. I was charged with a DWI I got my blood report with 0.12 BAC and accident. After ten month my case DISMISSED. I would definitely recommend James R Butler. Thanks for giving my life back to me.

I was pulled over and charged with DWI. I interviewed a few lawyers around Houston and Mr. Butler was clearly a cut above the rest. He kept me informed and involved me whenever he could. I had denied all tests and eventually a warrant was placed for my blood which came back at a .18. A big number, but Mr. Butler was willing to tackle it head on. He used a very savvy technique in the courtroom and quickly had the jurors on our side. The verdict was not guilty and I have Mr. Butler to thank for that.

Mr. Butler was an awesome lawyer. He kept me informed about everything that was happening my case. He was very honest with me in all aspects. He even told me the case wasn't going in our favor which was very honest of him. However, he did his very best and treated me like a person and not just a paying customer. Overall, with the help of Mr. Butler and God, my case was dismissed!

I was charged with a DWI last year. Needless to say, I was apprehensive about selecting an attorney. I spoke to several attorneys in the Houston area but my gut told me to choose Mr. Butler. I can't even begin to express how grateful I am for the time and effort he put into my case. My court date got rescheduled for nearly a year but it was definitely worth the wait. After much thought and consideration, I chose to go to trial. Mr. Butler made it a point to go over every detail of the night I got arrested. I remember feeling hopeless at one point. I felt the state had too much evidence against me to have the charge dropped. However, Mr. Butler's wisdom and experience proved otherwise. He delivers the perfect balance of facts and emotional appeal in the courtroom. Also, his assistants are pleasant and professional. If I ever had a question or concern, they were always there to help.
I remember thinking that I shouldn't hire an attorney for my case because I felt like the odds were against me. If I ever come across someone who is in need of an attorney for a DWI, I will definitely recommend Mr. Butler. He's simply the best.

If you need a DUI lawyer this is your lawyer!! I was charged with a DUI and illegal carry of a weapon. I blew a .14 the night of the arrest. Mr. Jim Butler got all charges dropped completely. I had to pay a little extra to go to Jury Trial but it was worth every penny. Mr. Butler worked very hard in the case and the end result was NOT GUILTY!!! So if you want a lawyer that is going to be knowledgeable of every end of the law and work the hardest he can to help your situation you want to hire Mr. Butler!!

Yes I would recommend this lawyer. I knew the day I met him and shook his hand that he was going to be my lawyer. He was truly caring, not just as a client, but as a person, and never made me feel less than. He did all he could for me dedicating many hours on may cause. After 10 resets, we finally got a dismissal. He is kind, caring and really like to get to know his clients.

Mr. Butler was a pleasure to have as my lawyer. This was my first time ever being in trouble and he helped me in every way possible to make sure I wouldn't stress. He knows a lot about what goes on with DWI and kept me informed on a lot of things. I would recommend him greatly because he is nice and will do the best job for you
