    I have the knowledge required to identify all the potential problems with a DWI investigation, from the traffic stop, to the field sobriety tests, to the machines used to test breath or blood. I will always make it my priority to get your case dismissed. Only after we have exhausted all possibilities of dismissal, will I consider any other options.

    250 cases

I am a former Harris County prosecutor with years of experience who will fight for your rights. Being a former prosecutor allowed me to build a set of skills that helps me spot the most difficult of issues in most cases. This is of great advantage to my clients, because it gives them the upper hand in negotiating a plea bargain or even having the case dismissed.

I pride myself in fighting very hard for my clients. I always make sure that the client understands every step of the process and makes an informed decision about the next step.

Unsurpassed communication, good results
Andreea handled (and is still my attorney) my 3rd DWI (felony). I was terrified, and had lots of questions. She was always helpful, answering emails in a very timely manner. It was such a relief to have someone so knowledgeable and caring in my corner. Since my DWI was/is a felony, I knew that I was facing dire circumstances. She worked with the prosecution to get good results for my case. Even after the sentencing, she continues to answer my questions immediately (hey - she replies faster than my own mom!) and encourage me to keep moving forward and staying on track. I would highly recommend Andreea to anyone in need of an attorney for a DWI. She'll keep you informed through the entire process, and let you know what to expect. Contact her and you will be pleasantly surprised at her professionalism and warm nature.

I am very grateful for Ms. Ionescu. I was afraid I will go to jail and she told me that she will help me and she did. She fought for me and I am very happy with the result I got.

She is the best DWI attorney in Houston.
She is the best DWI attorney in Houston. She is a former prosecutor and she knows a lot about DWI cases. She explained to me how things will happen in court, and that is exactly how it happens. She always got to court on time.

Best Experience.
This is not the first time I had to hire an attorney. The first time, I hired an attorney who never answered the phone, never returned calls. I never knew what was happening with my case. Ms. Ionescu is very accessible and always answered my questions. That put me at ease and made this process a lot easier. I recommend her to anybody who needs a good DWI attorney.

I am very happy with the result I got. She told me in the beginning that she can’t promise me a result, but that she can guarantee that she will do the best she can. And she did. She knows all the prosecutors and that helped to get me a good result.

Happy I found her.
Having to be charged with a DWI can ruin your entire life. I almost lost my job when they found out. Andreea helped me keep my DL and got me a good result on my case. I highly recommend her.
