I found Mr Flood while researching online for the best lawyer that could represent my DWI trial case after I had originally signed on another lawyer. Although his fees were high, they were worth it, all the way.
I got arrested one early Saturday morning in Jan 2014 by the Fort Bend Sheriff’s department when leaving the Baker’s Street pub in Sugarland town center.
After finding my way out of jail, my next move was to find a way to get out of the DWI mess. I began my search online and I found AVVO. Since I wanted the best lawyer on my side I filtered by practice area and I sorted by rating. I wanted a five star rated DWI/DUI lawyer. I selected a few and began calling them to understand their fees and availability. One of the ones that was highly rated however recommended another lawyer. This was a HUGE mistake on my part as I should have only gone with one of my own selected.
So I went and met this introduced lawyer. This lawyer “kind of” gave me all sorts of promises with statements such as, “I know all the prosecutors in that courthouse”, “I know the Judges”, “your case will not have to go to trial” etc. That was before he was signed on. As soon as he got signed on and his attorney fees were completely paid, it was a hassle to get his attention. He was not specialized in DWI/DUIs but just a criminal lawyer poking into several areas. At one point in the case, he requested a suppression hearing at which point I realized I had made a huge mistake of not hiring someone that specializes in the type of offence that I needed defense on because he could not strongly press his case.
As soon as I realized this error on my part in selecting the wrong attorney for the job I went back to my original list and it was at that point that I contacted Mr Flood.
He made no deceitful or enticing promise of getting me acquitted, however, he told me he would be 100% committed to doing what was humanly possible in fighting my case. He also told me that he would only be interested in fighting the case by going to trial rather than seeking a plea deal.
Throughout the case, he and his office were professional about reaching out to me whenever was necessary. His team members were all very courteous and supportive. They would always be with me in court and were always punctual. They were ALWAYS in court before me and I NEVER for once had to wait on them.
The case went to trial as he had promised, and it was during the trial that my confidence was more solidified that I had the best representation. He was well prepared all the way from the jury selection process, to his closing arguments. I actually wished his closing could have been video recorded as it was astounding. No one expected the clear and convincing closing argument. He was able to convince the jury (and probably the State DAs) by punching holes and pointing out big flaws in all the evidence brought forward by the State.
It was victory when the judge pronounced the unanimous “Not Guilty” verdict.
Finally, I want to add that even if the jury for some weird reason had given a “Guilty” verdict, I would still have been proud of having Mr Flood as my representation and I would thus highly recommend him to anyone serious about getting the best DWI lawyer on their side.

Tyler did a great job for me. I never felt like he wanted me to settle. In fact he would encourage me to hang in there and go to trial. In the end my DWI was dismissed the day of trial. I would definitely recommend them.

If you want the best lawyer to defend you, call Tyler Flood and be confident that you have the best DWI lawyer available. But it’s not just Tyler your getting, you get his team and they are great. I had the privilege of meeting and working with several members of his team getting my questions answered and support when I needed it. Many thanks to Justin for returning my calls sometimes late in the evening, when perhaps others might wait until the next day, keeping me worrying overnight, but not Justin. I could hear in his voice that he was tired from a long day but still, he never cut me off and listened patiently until he felt he had answered anything I could think of. I also was able to meet and work with James Fletcher and Andrea one of Tyler’s Paralegal who is awesome.
My Case: 2nd DUI – After a long year and a half, working though the process in Montgomery County criminal courts, Tyler Flood won my case. It was wonderful to hear the Judge read the verdict “Not Guilty”and to know the Jury reached that conclusion unanimously! I want to point out that Tyler negotiated a very good offer from the DA and it was tempting, but I wanted to clear my name. Most Lawyers would have probably told me I was an idiot for not taking it, but not Tyler. When I told him I wanted to fight it he did not argue with me, he said “OK”. We both went down the hard road and I am glad we did. I was not sure what to expect in an actual trial and was nervous as can be, but once it got under way I have to say it was reassuring to see Tyler and Andrea in action. It was amazing to see how they were taking down so many notes as testimony was given and how they worked together so seamlessly. When Tyler went to work on the Police Officer’s testimony at one point I almost jumped up and yelled Yeah! Go Tyler! Of course I kept my cool. As the trial winded down I was not so confident that we would win. Then I heard Tyler’s closing argument and it was so well thought out and encompassed all the critical details. His argument resonated with confidence in our position. As he laid it out, I could see the look in the jurors faces and I thought yes! they are getting it! It was such a relief to bring this to a close. You want to win and clear your name? Hire Tyler Flood and his team!

Tyler Flood is a master of his craft. He has a great legal team, and they all are working behind the scenes for you. All the other attorneys I consulted in Houston (about five) told me that I should take a plea and just do probation. But I'm in a profession where this specific charge is highly frowned upon, so having this stain on my record wasn't really an option. In Texas, you can basically take a plea and admit guilt or fight the charge, so I wanted to fight it. And Tyler was the only attorney who looked me in the eye and said that he was willing to fight every inch for me and my case. Tyler promises no miracles - Only that he is willing to do everything in his power to help you. If you have a pending DWI, then be patient. You are in for a long ride. It took a full year for me to go to trial and that is less time than most defendants from what I've heard. As Tyler advised patience, it paid off... I got moved to a nicer judge, a witness moved, and the state made clerical mistakes. Tyler fought calmly like a Jedi master, and we ended up with a CASE DISMISSED. Tyler is the premier attorney for this. You get what you pay for. A guy who will fight for you.

Tyler Flood & Associates did an awesome job handling my 2nd DWI offense. James Fletcher was my lawyer and he always kept me up to date, was very helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. In fact anyone I spoke to from the firm was always very quick and helpful with whatever I needed. They took my case to trial and did a wonderful job getting a not guilty verdict. Their team really came together to do some amazing work in court ! My family and I are very thankful and appreciative of everything they were able to do for me!

DISMISSED...The best word I have heard in a year!! After the long, dragged out process of the Harris County criminal courts, Tyler Flood beat my case. It's scary without a doubt and I know that anyone who is reading this now will be feeling tons of emotions and hoping for someone to be on their side. Now, I can tell you, "Don't worry!" These are the same words Tyler said to me and believing in that was hard under these circumstances, but believe me, he really knows what he is doing. He is the EXPERT on this kind of case by far and you will be impressed! In quick detail about my experience, it started out with my first meeting with an associate on a Sunday (a great help for those who have to work during the week). The team gather your information, details, etc. You will feel it's tedious but it is necessary; he does need to know everything because he will use it all against the prosecutor. If I had a question, I can talk to someone very quickly. James and Justin (associates) are great to make you feel at ease, and you'll need this throughout this process of court resets, etc. Until the day of trial (which you do want your day in court because I have seen it now with my own eyes on how many mistakes the police, prosecutors, and all the in-between do!), that's when Tyler and Andrea (the best paralegal) come in completely prepared and ready to go! Tyler did not give up and challenged everything and DID NOT BACK DOWN. In the end, it was dismissed and we all hugged each other from joy. Tyler, Andrea, Justin and James... thank you, thank you! For those of you who need an attorney in his field of expertise, call Tyler Flood & Associates!

My case involved a car accident and a blood draw with a BAC over .15 after refusing to submit to both breath and blood. Thankfully, no other vehicle was involved, and no one was hurt. Tyler Flood, being the confident and excellent litigator that he is, took my case to trial after us being denied Pre-Trial Diversion, and had my case dismissed after being in trial for maybe 3 hours total over 2 days. Tyler Motioned to Suppress on grounds of an unreasonably lengthy detention period where no DWI investigation occurred or was even in the works. Tyler had a convincing argument for the judge who eventually granted the motion. Thus, all evidence (video, blood draw, SFSTs, etc) collected at or after the incident could not be used against me. The State decided to dismiss the case 5 minutes after the Motion to Suppress was granted since it became self-evident that they could not meet the burden of proof. I am forever grateful to Tyler Flood. He saves the lives of good and innocent people by protecting our rights in a system that gets harsher and more unfair everyday. One thing I will add is that Tyler's trial law skills are unlike anybody I have ever seen, heard or even read about. He is phenomenal in the courtroom, and I wholeheartedly recommend Tyler to anybody who finds themselves in an unforgiving situation due to unjust protocol. Thank you so much, Tyler. You gave me my life back!

Tyler Flood was amazing! Even with blood evidence against me, he was awesome and still won my case. I would recommend him to anyone. I couldn't of picked anyone better to represent me. Tyler really knows his stuff!

I've used Tyler on two separate occasions. I had one case dismissed and the other found not guilty. He and his team do an amazing job of keeping me informed and updated on what's going on in court, my options, and their honest opinions about what would happen during my case. They are extremely professional from day one and worth every penny. I wouldn't recommend any other lawyer in Harris county to fight my DUI.
