About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Speeding and traffic ticket
    If there is a ticket for it, I have beaten it. We don't take prisoners. We don't go down there to schmooze or trade baby pictures with the Prosecutor. We go to WORK. Your driving record and pocketbook - short term and long term - are our chief concerns. We aren't there to accept the same "deal" that someone without an attorney gets. We have a solid, 2+ DECADE long body of work to point to. If your job or livelihood depend on winning, contact us. Telephone or e-mail are preferred.

    34 years, 4,700 cases

  2. Criminal defense
    Felony and Misdemeanor Criminal Defense Assaults, Auto-related offenses, Burglary, Drug, DWI, Weapons, White Collar,

    20 years, 230 cases

  3. Administrative law
    Dealing with the FMCSA, both the Safety Enforcement people, and DataQs is the new emphasis for the Practice. We can do you some good. There avenues to contest Claims and false entries and dismissals. Simply paying them is "unwise" at best. We handle License Suspension and Dsqual Hrngs., and Petitions for Occupational Licenses. We will happily put you in touch with expert counsel for Expunctions, ALR hearings, and Requests for Ltd Distrib of Crim Info (so-called "sealing the record")/

    20 years, 94 cases

  4. Transportation
    This is an area of practice within the area of Administrative Law. We deal with all aspects of situations where your company, large or small, is subject to sanctions, from monetary to loss of commercial carrier no., to forced closure, that stem from allegations of unacceptable safety behavior. We can help you lessen the punishment, and to get your safety "act together". CALL US the moment you get notice of a safety audit. Time is of the essence!

    10 years, 8 cases

I am a cantankerous, determined, persistent, knowledgable and skilled attorney in my areas of practice.  I do not have a reverse gear.  I only know to go forward, to work hard, to thoroughly investigate, to use my superior knowledge of the law and the regulatory environment to client's advantage.  I am aggressive, but businesslike.  I am very much at home in the courtroom.  I do not go to court looking schmooze and trade pictures of pets.  I go there to take care of legal business, and to prevail over the state and all its minions and resources.  I fully expect to do so.  Those expectations are founded in fact and experience.  I was the point of the spear in traffic for decades. 


I do not claim to be a generalist, or to be functional at all outside my realm: traffic, criminal law, and administrative law as it pertains to getting and keeping your license, and in clearing up your criminal record as much as the law allows.  Call me.

Mr. Lee represented me for a misdemeanor traffic violation and got my charge dismissed. Despite being a simple traffic violation, I truly felt Mr. Lee treated my case as though it was of utmost importance. From my experience, Mr. Lee has an in-depth knowledge of the Texas transportation code. He explained all my options and thoroughly explained the implications of those options. Furthermore, he responded quickly to all my questions throughout the entire process. He insisted that the prosecutor provide all evidence regarding the case, evidence I did not know I had a right to examine. Without Mr. Lee’s representation, I likely would have allowed the prosecution to pressure me into a guilty plea. Mr. Lee represented me passionately yet professionally, and educated me in the process. I believe his rates are very reasonable for the service he provides and would seek his counsel in the future should the need arise.

2 Dismissed cases!
I would like to take the time out of my day to submit a review on Mr.David R.Lee . I met Mr.Lee in 3/2016 seeking an attorney for a citation I hade recived. Mr.Lee made it clear this was a very serious citation and took time out of his busy day to listen to me . I started the paper work process it did not take much time and very simple and straight forward. During the waiting process prior to the cort date . Any question's or concerns I had Mr.lee responded to me every time . He also responded at a reasonable time ( Meaning within the same day) . Finally my cort day was there. Mr.lee was well mannered and walked me in with confidence . He asked me to have a seat while he made it clear he was representing me . We mad it to the court room and Mr.lee went to the prosecutor. Within minutes we where leaving . Mr.Lee had received a phone call that my case was being dismissed. !! He congratulated me and I did not walk away with any regret . Today is 5/22/17 about 2 weeks ago called Mr.Lee seeking his help again with a much more serious situation, with an immediate meeting the next day . I was impressed by him stateing the laws off the top of his head word for word and explaining what it means to me and how he will help me . (He is easygoing and very easy to talk to and always makes you full better with his humor) !! So with an immediate LOR (letter of representation) he went to work . Days later I received and e mail from Mr.Lee stating my case Was dismissed and congratulating me . I have an class (A) CDL and a government job and am very grateful I have a clean record because of Mr.Lee ! Do not hesitate to reach out to him and just ask it's worth it !!
