Mr Previte is a very good attorney. His first request was for a speedy trial so I could move on from this. After the result of the theft charge (misdemeanor) I was terminated from my management position and knew I would be unable seek equal employment if this case was not properly handled.
So I fully trusted Mr Previte on a leap of faith and good reviews and was initially frustrated that he asked me to proactively attend theft counseling and start on volunteer hours, and court was delayed at our request. I gathered other information that he requested, including letters of recommendations and he obtained video copy of the occurrence and all reports and we met and talked through the scenario. He was always available himself and gave me his personal cell phone number. I didn't deal with a secretary or wait for calls to be returned, Mr. Previte would text if unavailable and would get back to me same day.
I went to court and sat silently in the courtroom and waited and watched his interactions with his peers and other clients and felt scared, but felt I made the right choice in picking an attorney in seeing the other attorneys interact with their clients and professsinal peers. Mr. Previte was equally professional to his peers and clients, which I did not witness with the other attorney/client interactions.
During court, Mr. Previte motioned for me to meet him in the hallway. He recapped my case with me and asked if I had any questions and he left me to sit in the hallway and wait. I waited about 20 minutes and Mr Previte returned to the hallway and told me the case had been completely dismissed and I could this behind me and move forward with my life. I actually hugged him and thanked him for knowing what steps to take proactively and to stand with me during this challenging time.
While Mr Previte told me at the first consultation, that dismissal would be the best case scenario, he did not promise it. He told me I would need to trust the timing and do the work to show my commitment to making this right. We discussed all "what if" scenarios and I felt very comfortable knowing what my options were in advance and I really feel that Mr. Previte personally cared about my case. I know he has many cases and I was just another case, but in going through the experience, it's comforting to know that someone cares about the outcome as much as I do.
While I'm still looking for a job and recovering from this setback in my life, this is something that will not haunt me for the rest of my professional career because I chose the right attorney and we worked in partnership to get this dismissed.
I'm forever gteatful to Mr. Previte and would recommend him to anyone and would offer the advice to follow his directions, which seem like a lot of things to do at the time when your so overwhelmed with everything to begin with, it he is experienced and wise and proactive and in the end, i couldn't have asked for a better outcome.

I've never been in trouble with the law before but ended up in an unfortunate situation in 2015 and got charged with a DWI. I acted fast and spent thousands of dollars and hired who I thought was the best attorney in DFW. Well, fast forward to a year later and I did get charged and put on probation because my original attorney handled my case very poorly. I contacted Paul during my probation to see if I could get my probation to end early and sure enough half way through, he submitted the necessary paperwork and got the job done! I never even had to go to court at all! If I had known, I would've hired Paul from the get go! Definitely highly recommended!

I was frantic, attempting to obtain legal assistance for a family member that required advice/services very early on a Saturday morning. Living in the Northeast, I had no idea who to contact in the Fort Worth area. I spent several few hours doing internet research and, based on areas of expertise, qualifications, and posted reviews, created a short list and began making calls and leaving messages. When I called Paul, he personally answered the phone. He immediately took care of our most pressing issue, and remained in constant communication with us throughout the weekend and into the next week to assist, answer questions, and provide advice. It was such a relief! I received return calls from all of the other attorneys on Monday, well after Paul had already stepped in and taken control of the situation. We can’t thank Paul enough and would highly recommend him.

Mr.Previte works hard and genuinely cares about his clients. I was blessed to have him appointed to me by the courts in 2014, and have recently hired him again just a few weeks ago because of the amazing work I witnessed previously. He worked to see that I didn't have to give birth to my daughter in prison, and has now worked to see I am not taken from my daughter and sent back. Paul has gotten two felonies, filed two years apart, dismissed both times. I highly recommend this man to represent anyone in search of a hard-working and genuine attorney. He deserves more thanks than I am able to give.

I hired Paul after searching for a competent DWI attorney in Fort Worth. If you've never been in trouble with the law before then you have no idea what to even look for in an attorney, let alone things like how much they will cost you or how truly involved they will be while working your case.
For anyone that may be skeptical about Paul's perfect rating on Avvo, let me just say, he has earned it. He is an absolutely top-notch, top tier attorney and those of us living in Tarrant county are fortunate to have him. He is laid back, highly intelligent and best part of all, he's affordable and will work with you on a payment plan.
Seriously, Paul will fight for absolutely every inch he can in your case. The man will not take no for an answer from anybody! Rest assured when Paul is in your corner that you are in excellent hands.
Paul personally works on the cases himself, no handing it off to some new kid fresh out of law school or a legal assistant. He responded promptly to any and all questions and requests I had, he was truly just a text message away. He always had an easy-going demeanor that put me at ease as soon as I'd see him walk into the court room. If you've never been in trouble with the law before, it can be very intimidating. Paul wipes all those fears away.
As far as my case and the results from it - let me say this. I knew I was guilty and so did anyone that saw any video footage of me (you know, like the prosecutor). The results? I'm living life EXACTLY like I did before I was even charged with anything.
Seriously, Paul is the real deal when it comes to criminal defense and if you find yourself in need of defending, look no further, you won't regret it.
If you find yourself in trouble with the law, you'd better call Paul.

Paul Previte helped my son with a DWI. He was professional, and always answered phone calls immediately. He was proficient and most important, he had the utmost integrity, honesty, and truthful. I have worked and known other lawyers, and I can tell you, from my experience, Paul Previte is the best.

Paul is an excellent attorney. Took a year but got my DWI dismissed. If I ever have a problem again, he's the first person I will call.

Paul is authentic and really will fight for you. I've had to hire and deal with some lawyers in the past and have never had a good experience. Every attorney I have dealt with, except Paul, has either been incompetent or just simply doesn't seem to care about my case anymore once I've paid them money. What's so great about Paul is that he is blunt and willing to tell you the reality of situations based on his many years of experience. I honestly began to think there were no legit attorneys in this state after all the terrible experiences I've had with other attorneys. Paul is not short-sighted like most other lawyers, he knows it is better to care about his reputation for the long term, than to just take your money and blow you off like most lawyers seem to do. It's good to know there's a straight talker out there like Paul who actually cares about his cases.

I had a charge of unlawful restraint in Tarrant Co. and was told that the DA had a no drop policy.... Paul got it dismissed with no problems at all. Thank you Mr. Previte.
