Criminal defense attorney Brian Bolton strongly defends individuals faced with criminal misdemeanor and felony charges.  Mr. Bolton concentrates his practice on alcohol-related violations such as a DWI/DUI, Intoxication Assault, Intoxication Manslaughter, but represents all criminal allegations including theft, domestic violence and assault offenses, and drug charges (at the State and Federal levels). He has represented individuals of all walks of life, including teachers, commercial pilots, politicians, police officers, paramedics, doctors, and corporate professionals, as well as mechanics, bricklayers, and grocery store clerks.  All of these individuals seek out Mr. Bolton because they want the best outcome possible to the charge they are facing.

Dallas, Fort Worth, and Denton DWI attorney, Brian Bolton has a reputation as one of the most commanding DWI attorneys in Texas, and his skills have earned him continuous work throughout the State.  He has represented people from more than 25 different counties across Texas, in almost every corner of the State. His colleagues, as well as law enforcement officers, come to him seeking his thorough understanding of alcohol-related criminal matters to assist in their own jury cases.

Mr. Bolton‘s extensive knowledge regarding the ins-and-outs of a thorough criminal investigation help him unravel every aspect of his clients’ cases, leaving no room for omission of evidence that may help the line of defense.  By understanding and premeditating what tactics the prosecutors and police will use, Mr. Bolton constructs compelling arguments that are often undefeated.

This all-knowing approach occurs as a result of his former work as the Chief Prosecutor at the Dallas County Courthouse, where he trained police officers on how to properly conduct DWI offense investigations, testify in Court hearings, and how to gather evidence to build cases against DWI suspects. His methods prove important since even the smallest details can strengthen a defense strategy and result in a verdict of "NOT GUILTY." 

If you have been charged with a misdemeanor, first DWI, or felony offense, having a fearless attorney to represent your case may prevent future costs that outweigh the present costs.  Having a criminal charge on your record will hinder your efforts to obtain the job you desire when background checks are used.  It may also get in the way of your eligibility join military services; deny school tuition loans and much more.

As a Dallas criminal defense attorney, Brian Bolton demands results through a powerful and aggressive defense.  He is currently Lead Trial Counsel at The Law Office of Richard McConathy in Dallas, TX..  The Law Office of Richard McConathy serves North Texas and the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, including Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Plano, Carrollton, Irving, Allen, Lewisville, McKinney, Allen, Cleburne, Rockwall, Greenville, H-E-B, and Denton.  Call for a free, in-depth consultation with Brian Bolton or his partner, Richard C. McConathy.  The sooner you take the steps to creating a defense for your case, the more complete, detailed and well-built your representation will be.
