About me

Houston DWI Attorney Paul B. Kennedy believes each case is unique and cannot be handled with a "cookie-cutter" defense. Attorney Paul B. Kennedy will tailor the defense to meet your desires and the facts of the case.


Houston DWI Attorney Paul B. Kennedy understands that no one intends to be arrested for drunk driving; but once that officer smells alcohol, an ordinary traffic stop suddenly becomes a DWI stop.


A wrongful DWI arrest can turn your life upside down. Houston DWI Attorney Paul B. Kennedy is here to get you through the process, to defend your rights, to save your driver's license and to restore your reputation.
