DWI
I highly recommend Todd Ashley. I got a DWI for the first time and of course I was scared out of my mind. Todd Ashley eased my mind about the whole process. Definitely great customer service and professionalism. My case got dismissed with in couple months, and I went to court only one time.

THE BEST!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
My 19 year old son was charged with a DWI. We called my friend that’s a judge and she referred us to the BEST ATTORNEY! I made a call to Todd Leffler ,not thinking I would hear from him til Monday. I was pleasantly surprised when he called me back that weekend. Mr. Leffler was so very nice, professional, empathetic, and patient. My momma heart was a hot mess. Mr. Leffler had such a calm demeanor which gave me a sense of trust. He walked me through every step and every scenario. He was so patient with my many questions. I honestly felt like he was treating my son like his own family, wanting the very best for him. I had heard in the past this whole process was going to take a full year to be resolved, but my son’s case was resolved within 5 weeks. Mr. Leffler was able to get the DWI completely dismissed, without even needing a pretrial diversion. We will forever be grateful to this amazing attorney and person, Todd Leffler. The consequences could have been devastating to my son’s future and career.

The real deal...Get what you paid for and not dropped in the grease
I was charged with a 2nd DUI/DWI and surely enough was sick at my stomach of the results of such, including depression at its worst. I was recommended to hire a good lawyer and luckily met Todd A Leffler in this process. Todd made me immediately settle down and relax a bit with his kind and professional demeanor. It was like taking a ton of bricks off my chest talking to him about my case as he listened to my side of the story. He was well prepared in the courtroom, absolutely professional and calmed me down prior to entering the room and quietly told me the steps of what was happening. Todd had my trial end before Pre Trial Diversion and told me what to or not to say if asked anything. After this County charge trial was dismissed, he and I were smiling huge and he said its not over yet, we have the State coming up next for license eligibility but I will represent you in that one which also he also had dismissed (which he covered that himself without my presence needed) and he and his team moved forward with expulsion process to remove this trial and arrest from my history or background. Unbelievable it seems, but just a very kind and professional man that will fight for you every step of the way. I would like to say Thank you Todd for giving me a second chance This result saved my job of ~20 years and my pension plan with a major chemical company here in Texas. Without his help I felt I would be done for career wise and not sure how I would get through the gate at work with an interlock device attached to the vehicle (he also contacted the court same day to get them moving on the process of having the device removed same day). Just am blessed and so relieved to have met the right person to represent me in the court of law. If you or a loved one happens to be in some kind of misfortune like this, please strongly consider a top end lawyer like Todd A Leffler (saved my life and career). Get an uber as it is safer and cheaper, or get a good lawyer!

DWI Case
I recently hired Todd to be my lawyer after being Charged with a DWI. He was one of the first I spoke with over my case and was very helpful and informative. He was able to get my charged dismissed without even having to do a pretorial diversion. He made sure that I was in the loop about everything he was doing. If I would have been charged I could have lost my job and I would have to constantly worry about what the next step would be and how many fees I would have to pay with the state. He was very caring and sympathized with me knowing I had a young child as well. He was able to speak to me in person the same day I called and was always a text or call away. Without hesitation he answered all my questions and concerns for what would have been ahead of me. As soon as I got out of jail I had a lot of letters flooding my house and my previous address. It was overwhelming but I am very glad I made the choice to choose him. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a very good and helpful lawyer. Everyone makes mistakes and everyone deserves to have a second chance and Todd made sure I had mine. I am very grateful for the outcome of my case. I couldn’t have chosen better.

In Case of Emergency, Call Todd
It’s crazy how one bad decision can alter the course of your life. I was charged with a DUI and nothing could prepare me for this lengthy process other than Todd Leffler. Todd’s understating for the law is easily seen through his talent and attention. He never allows any detail to big or small to go unresolved. You can tell Todd is passionate about law, but even more so about his client’s in giving them the best result’s. In my case, he not only saved me time and energy, but was able to get my case completely dismissed and bring this nightmare to an end. In Summary add Todd Leffler to your contacts.

Above and Beyond
I consulted with several prominent attorneys in the Houston area about my DWI case before hiring Mr. Leffler. Of all the attorneys I consulted with, I felt that Mr. Leffler seemed to be the most straightforward and knowledgeable about the process and what to expect. I am very happy that I decided to hire Mr. Leffler to represent me in my case. A conviction for this offense would have been highly adversarial to my career advancement opportunities. From day one, he was quick to respond to inquiries and also gave me more than enough supporting documentation and advice to guide me through the legal process. I received status reports often on my case and was always informed well in advance of any potential actions that were likely to occur next. Any time I was to be due in court , or had to do something for my probation, I would get a call from Mr. Leffler to detail the process, go over what I would be required to do, and most importantly would walk me through some common mistakes I should avoid making while there. Even after the dismissal of my case, Mr. Leffler has continued to quickly respond to emails and texts when I have questions about my case and to provide me with any documentation I have requested (including documentation from a previous case in which he was not my attorney) While representing me in my case, Mr. Leffler was able to secure for me what I considered to be rather minimal bond conditions as I waited for a resolution to the case. I did not receive jail time, and despite having prior charges that were of a similar nature I was able to secure a pre trial diversion and after the conditions of my diversion were met, a dismissal.

Client
I was referred to Todd Leffler to represent my DWI and unlawful carry case. I had never been in trouble with the law before and was honestly scared. From the first day i met Todd he made me feel like everything was going to be okay… I knew i was in good hands. Extremely professional always responsive and very respected in the courtroom. I didn’t know Todd from another stranger on the street but when i say he treated me like family that’s exactly what he did. Without a doubt extremely pleased with how he handled the cases as they were both dismissed. I can’t say enough about him.

Todd was a tremendous help to one of my family members. The family member was charged with two DWIs in a short period of time, and both cases were dismissed.  Todd was always available for any questions we had, quick to respond, and was helpful in keeping us informed throughout the entire process.  We were really happy with Todd’s results.  He is an awesome attorney.  I highly recommend him.

Professional Excellence
Mr. Leffler was referred to me by a friend of my family to represent my case of misdemeanor assault, which was dismissed recently. From the initial meeting and throughout the entire process Mr. Leffler has been extremely professional, clear and concise with the legal terminology, and available to discuss my case any time I had questions. Most importantly I felt comfort knowing my personal interests and my case were in the hands of a knowledgeable, experienced, and professional attorney.

Very trustworthy
What was best about Todd was his honesty and trustworthiness m. He was very easy to talk to and at each meeting he always made sure I did not leave confused or had any questions. I had gone to him after I was charged with theft from an employer. Todd always had my best interests in mind and he instructed me on what steps I would need to take in order to increase my chances for dismissal; one month later my case was dismissed and all I had to do was pay restitution which was worth being able to keep a clean record and still give me a chance at having a future.

DWI PTI DISMISSED!!
Simply put, Todd was amazing. Court dates are miserable and can oftentimes be a daunting, confusing period of misery. Todd made this process simple and pretty much as relaxing as it could be. He was calm, comforting, and explained everything thoroughly. Whenever I had questions, Todd was easily accessible and open to answering anything and clarifying when necessary. Literally, all I needed to do was shoot him a text. Furthermore, I believe Todd's experience and friendly demeanor played an integral part in the outcome of my case (which started as CASES). Todd was able to get one of my charges dismissed early on which then allowed me to get into a unique pre-trial program. He expressed his confidence in me to complete this program and in the end was able to get my case completely dismissed. All in all, we developed a friendly, professional relationship and I will keep his card in my wallet for years to come. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

DWI Dismissal and Patience
I was looking at DWI #2 for an instance where I got pulled over for speeding. The officer did not have me perform a field sobriety test on the scene, he essentially just cuffed me a took me to jail. I hired Todd’s firm and Todd took on my case. Todd was always available and willing to take the time to answer questions that I would have at random times during the process. Todd was always polite and willing to explain the issues to me on multiple occasions due to my lack of understanding of the courts, procedures, and my case’s points of interest. Todd used some case law he found in his research for arguing to suppress the arrest and move for dismissal based on lack of investigation by the officer prior to arrest. After it took the courts nearly a year to provide the video evidence that backed up my experience the judge was able to see our side of the argument and this led to the eventual dismissal of my DWI. I was on bond supervision for about a year before my case was dismissed. Stay out of trouble, be patient, and have Todd on your side.

Miracle Worker
I hired Todd to handle my DWI case and I was more than pleased with everything he did for me in order to get my case dismissed. I had blown over a .21 and was involved in an accident the night of my DWI. In addition, I had prior criminal charges and had numerous bond violations through the course of the court proceedings while awaiting the outcome. Todd was able to mitigate all of the various issues and still manage to come out with a great outcome. I was approved for a PTI which will result in the case getting dismissed. I could not be happier with the result. I work in an industry that requires a professional license and my career would have been at jeopardy if I wasn't able to get this dismissed. Todd is truly a MIRACLE worker!

Very greatfull!
I guess sometime in your life you will hear the phrase it wasn't me or think no way this could happen to me. 15 months ago I uttered the words I can't believe this happened to me. When I got pulled over for speeding on a dreadful September night that last thing on my mind was being arrested for a DWI. I was literally lost for words with my thoughts racing at a1000 miles an hour. I had never been in this situation and not knowing the ending result of the consequences involved for my actions. Your freedom is taken away from you all you can think about is your family, career, and money. What to do? I knew nothing about the law when it comes to this situation. I went too my fire union for help. Yes I'm a Firefighter for the city of Houston. I was asked one question "How much money do you have"? I answered with I want the best lawyer that you can recommend. That's when Mr. Todd Ashley Leffler with l came into my life. I met with Mr. Leffler and his associates the same day that I contacted him. I was put at ease and felt I had made the right choice. For a whole year we went to court, going back and fourth resetting dates, weighing my options thinking the obvious will happen. Blower in the car, probation for a year with calling in once a week, taking classes once a month and having to call into my bail bonds which I was already doing every Monday and last but no "Least" having to spend more money on a situation that was not warranted. I really believe that Mr. Leffler believed in me because my end result was the last thing I was expecting. I got no Blower in my car, No one year probation with calling and mandatory classes, no more calling my bails bond nor another $3,000 out of pocket. 1. 30 Hours of community service 2. 12 hours online DWI class I just want to say thank you Mr. Leffler. I don't think you will never understand how absolutely grate full I am. This was definitely a lesson learned in life but its good to know you have someone to defend you if needed. I believe I have a lawyer for life but I have also gained a friend!

DWI Dismissed
After being arrested for a DWI I was truly fearful that I may have destroyed my professional career and ruined my life. I had a blood draw with blood alcohol of .21 which was way over the legal limit. I was referred to Todd Leffler to represent my case, I was told he was one of the best DWI defense attorneys. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and reassuring throughout the process. He was always available and very thorough with answering all my questions. Todd Leffler was able to get my case dismissed and for that I am forever grateful and thankful for his dedication and expertise in resolving my case. I was lucky to have Todd Leffler on my side and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an honest, compassionate, trustworthy attorney.

"I whole heartedly endorse Todd Leffler. I've known Todd since he was a Harris County District Attorney. Being a reasonable and fair minded DA, he could only sell that nonsense for so long and decided to follow his true calling fighting for the citizen. However, the DAs office did provide him invaluable experience on ALL types of criminal cases. Todd is confident in any court room on any case. His personality if also very powerful with the jury. Any client would be luck to hire Todd. (Even if he did go to St. Johns.)"
