My name is Stephen Hamilton; I am a Board Certified Criminal Defense Attorney who focuses on DWI cases. I have spent my thirteen years of practice on the defense side. I began to focus on DWI cases in early 2000 after becoming a member of the National College for DUI Defense. I have hundreds of hours of continuing legal education on criminal law issues and specifically on DWI/DUI defense.
I am married to an amazing woman, Ressa Hamilton. Ressa was born and raised here in Lubbock. We have two wonderful children, Jaxon and Raygen Hamilton who have been a true blessing in my life. My family and I are blessed to live in Lubbock and have many close family members and friends who we enjoy spending time with often.
Because my practice focuses on DWI defense and criminal law, I often speak and lecture to other lawyers about how to try a DWI case. Local media in cases and issues involving DWI or other intoxication issues has interviewed me.
My goal is to focus on each case that I take and provide personal client attention. I try more cases in a year than most criminal lawyers try in ten years and I believe that is for several reasons. First, I like my clients. If I can help them in their time of stress I want to do whatever I can. Second, I like trials. I enjoy the stress that comes with being in trial. I believe that when I walk in that courtroom, as arrogant as this might sound, I am in charge and the goal is to help my client.
