Thanks Fred!
Fred did a great job handling my DWI case. Despite creating a very tough case for myself, because of Fred's hard work and professionalism, I still ended up with no DWI charge on my record and didn't even have my license suspended. I was able to get into a PTI program (I wasn't eligible initially but with Fred's help was able to get into the program anyway). All this at a reasonable price point. If you need a good lawyer who is respected in the court, will patiently answer any questions you have, and will do a great job on your case, Fred is your guy.

Mr. Dahr is an extremely competent attorney. He was hired because of his stellar reputation and reviews. I could not have been more pleased with his work effort and knowledge. He was able to get a wrongful case dismissed! Not only did he work hard on my behalf, but he was informative and communicated with me during the entire process.

THE MAN YOU NEED WHEN IT COMES TO PRACTICE IN LAW
Fred Dahr beat the hardest county in Texas and One the hardest counties in the US for me. I was facing 2 counts of assault with a deadly weapon and already a felon. It took a couple months but got dismissed. If you want the best of the best he’s the counsel you need

He's the guy you want on your case!
I've never had any trouble with the law and suddenly found myself facing a felony conviction. I didn't know what to do, and didn't even know I was being pulled over until I was, and that got me a charge of "evading." My wife hired Fred almost immediately (after hearing I was in jail, and why) and within six months, the case got dismissed. I'm so happy to have had Fred in my corner. He was the consummate professional, and made sure every court appearance that I felt like a priority. I'd hire him again in a second, but I hope I don't have to. :)

Professional. Diligent.
My case was fully dismissed. I was charged with Assault in a self defense scenario in my own home. He explained what was needed to be done in order to get the best outcome with my case and gathered necessary evidence towards building a strong defense. I couldn't be happier with the representation Mr. Dahr provided.

Excellent Attorney
When I got myself into some trouble, I was desperate to find someone to help. I did some extensive research and found Fred to be the most suitable attorney for my case. He has built a very positive rapport with his clients and has a great deal of experience and knowledge for his field of work. I called several attorneys and Fred was the fastest to get back with me and he set up an appointment for the next day. He did some research for my case, and if he didn't know an answer, he would call someone else to get the right answers to help. I think communication is key when dealing with time sensitive situations, and he gone above and beyond that. He is diligent, professional, and really cares about your well being. He is easy to talk to and you can feel confident that he will find every opportunity in the details to win your case. I have referred several friends to him and he has helped every one of them in their favor. I would recommend Fred to anyone! Thanks, Fred!

Fred the best
Fred helped my husband with a case of possesion with intent to deliver of a large amount of drugs. His bond was set at 1 million and reduces it to $500,000.00 then to $50,000.00. He quietly defended him until the case was dismissed. Even when everyone said he would get a minium of aleast 10 to 20 years. I am so glad we hired him and gave him the change to defend him. He was also very resonable in price and gave us a payment plan with an extension. Which helped aliviate our pain alot more. He Fred did this in record time. We thank GOD above all but also thank Fred in persuing our case and helping us get out of it.
