5 Stars, Outstanding, Knowledgeable, Professional Lawyer
I was blessed with having Mr.Eric Puente as my defense attorney in my DWI case. I was extremely scared and was referred to Mr.Puente by another reputable attorney. Mr.Puente answered my call and scheduled an immediate meeting to go over my case. When I arrived, he had already done his homework and checked where I currently was in being prosecuted. He was professional and explained the entire process from start to finish, my options, and what his goals were for my case. I left his office that day feeling confident that I was in great hands, and given my individual circumstances, was hopeful for a positive outcome. Eric made sure to call me periodically with updates to my case which put my mind at ease. I never once was concerned with if my case was being handled in a timely manner, and the knowledge of the legal system in Dallas with this particular case was exemplary. He made a scary, traumatic experience, into a standardized, systematic case, and kept up with all areas of my case, as well as keeping me informed. The outcome of my case was the best that I could have hoped for (even though there were no guarantees made this would happen), and I have Eric to thank for all his hard work, outstanding reputation in the legal community, and professionalism. I would recommend any family, friend or acquaintance to Eric Puente, and I'm grateful that I was introduced to him by the other attorney.

The Right Man for the Case.................
I was going through such a scary emotional time and I was unsure of the outcome of my case but after going to talk to Mr. Puente & Associates I could breath again. They reassured me that everything was going to be okay. They kept me informed every step of the way. The day of the hearing they had all the right answers and everything went great. I am so glad I hired him as my attorney. I told them every detail so they were able to help me to the fullest. If ever needed I would definitely hire him again. I would recommend him to anybody.......................

"I first met Eric when he was a prosecutor for Dallas County and even though in opposition, Eric was one of the ADA's that was clearly interested in justice above just getting a conviction. Since then Eric has joined the criminal defense community and I know he brings with him that same moral character. Eric is also very intelligent and a highly effective advocate for his clients."

Clients invariably leave Eric's office satisfied with their legal representation. I highly endorse Eric Puente."
