DWI Reduced
I hired Mr. Roundtree after I was arrested for DWI. He was very professional, not judgemental, and helpful though one of the scariest times in my life. He got my DWI dropped to an Obstruction of Highway. Even after my case was put into deferred adjudication, I had an issue that I need Mr. Roundtree's help with. He helped me even though my case was done with. I would recommend Mr. Roundtree to anyone after a DWI arrest.

Great Attorney!!
We were looking into an attorney that would be able to help with my husband's case considering he has a CDL and was pulled over for a DUI. We spoke with Mr. Roundtree and he explained the process to us and answered all the questions we had. He was very patient and he always made himself available to us. My husband was able to keep his CDL license and he was charged with Obstruction of a Highway instead of the DUI. I would recommend Mr. Roundtree to anyone who is looking for an attorney.

DWI Dismissal
Last year I got charged with a DWI and contacted Timothy Rountree right away. He worked tirelessly night and day to make sure I always had what I needed and responded quickly to my requests and questions. He ended up getting my case dismissed and I got my life back! Thank you Tim!!!

CASE DISMISSED!
Hi, my name is Saajan. I was arrested with the charge of a DWI with an alcohol blood breath test of 0.08. I was taken to jail for 17 hours. Soon after I hired Lawyer Timothy J. Rountree. I went to court multiple times. Having it reset for more that a year I never had a single doubt that my case would be dismissed because I knew that Mr. Rountree is someone that I could count on. The state offered me an "Obstruction of Highway" and I would walk away with additional fees regarding probation and a conviction of DWI for the rest of my life. After reviewing my case with Tim I decided to take my case to trial! Keeping in mind that I was not in the most favorable situation due to the jury not looking for someone that is completely drunk, but someone that is right at the legal limit I kept my ground and faith in Mr. Rountree. On the day of the trial I was so confident in Tim I had no feeling of scarce even though a trial by jury is a flip of a coin. Mr. Rountree walked into the courtroom with a positive attitude, gave a brief overview of who I am and what my case in tails. After the state defendants reviewed my entire case, they handed my file to the judge. After Tim spoke with the judge he made the final decision and dismissed my case entirely! If you have a DWI or have already been convicted with a previous DWI in the state of Texas I highly recommend attorney at law Mr. Timothy J. Rountree! Ever since I hired Mr. Rountree I have always able to reach him with questions and update anything I needed to regarding my case evidence on the client portal that all comes with his extremely affordable fee! Thank you Tim for all the help along this journey. Thanks to you and your expertise I have my life back!

Methodical
Mr Rountree was able to get my DUI dismissed. From the start Tim was on point making sure he had all the information and evidence SAPD had in their possession. He was able to use this information to his advantage. It is important to give all the information as you know it to Mr. Rountree so that he can find any irregularities in the evidence. You have to be true to yourself and Tim so that he can make sound decisions. Tim was able to question the two SAPD officers in such a way that he was able to have the two contradict each outher! Tim was also able to question the blood test taken and had ordered a subsequence test which ultimately rendered the case dismissed. This was a very trying time for my family and I. Tim Rountree worked diligently on my behalf to secure this dismissal. For this I am truly greatfull! If you ever find yourself in this position, it is imperative to choose the right Lawyer to secure a truthful outcome. Tim Rountree should be at the top of your list!

Dependable & Affordable
I was arrested for an unlawful carry, & a DWI in Bexar County, it was my first offense for both. Mr. Rountree took on my case and got my unlawful carry dropped, my DWI lowered to an obstruction of highway and kept my license from being suspeneded. He communicated with me throughout the entire process, and always got back to me when I contacted him. He was easy to work with, reliable, dependable, and affordable. If I ever need a lawyer in the future, I will be contacting him.

LIFESAVER!
Just when I thought I was going to lose my job, after my PO amended the conditions to my probation I met with my family attorney who was reluctant to approach this particular judge..... I called Attorney Tim Rountree the same day and to my surprise HE answered! It was a Friday EVENING, he calmly responded with clear, concise and reasonable instructions to learn about me, my goals and the situation at hand. In the midst of my chaos he made everything easy and gave me the sense of hope and .... at a click of a button he was my attorney. As my attorney, Mr. Rountree, approached the court, spoke on my behalf and changed my entire situation and life 360 degrees. The judge agreed to the requests, I now have a sense of job security and can focus on what is important. I cant thank him enough for what he accomplished.

Tim’s the Total Package
When the phone rings at 130am, you know it’s not good news - I was 1500 miles away when my husband called to say he had been arrested for DWI. The only thing I could do from afar was look for an attorney. I found Tim’s website and reviews online shortly after that phone call, and was reaching out to him early on a Sunday morning. He returned my call promptly (as he was on his way to church no less!) and was the calm in the middle of the storm. He even called the jail that morning to check on my husband’s status to ease my mind. I was so comfortable with him and his willingness to go above and beyond, I hired him for my husband before he was even released from jail! Tim worked tirelessly on my husband’s case, and in the end, secured a plea deal bringing the original charges of DWI Higher than .15 to Obstruction of a Highway. We both couldn’t be more pleased. Tim made a bad situation bearable and walked us through the entire process. If you ever find yourself on the bad side of a wrong decision, do yourself a favor and call Tim. From stellar advice to explaining the entire DWI maze, he didn’t stop until he secures the best result we could hope for.

My son's DWI Case
Mr. Roundtree was excellent! He was able to expunge the case for my son. He had a prior alcohol offense on his record, so we were very concerned about that. He was professional, knowledgeable, and worth every penny!

DWI Felony
Wow! I knew from the moment I first spoke with Mr. Roundtree that he was the perfect person to help me. My wife and I contacted several attorneys but from the moment we first spoke with him we knew it was a great relationship. Tim fought tooth and nail to reduce my 2 counts of felony dwi to a misdemeanor. During the entire process his communication was always top notch and I had plenty of confidence that he would get the job done. His fees were reasonable and after talking to many attorneys he was pretty competitive with his pricing. I would definitely recommend him to anyone going through a siimilair situation.

Great Attorney
Attorney Rountree was the best lawyer out there for DWI cases. His price was reasonable. And had my case dropped down to Destruction of Highway. He works alone and responds right away. He puts your interest in first.

Awesome man, great lawyer.
Tim was an awesome lawyer, he did a great job with my case. I was pulled over for a DWI, he fought for me for almost a year. He actually got my case from a DWI to an obstruction of highway,which helped my record and punishment tremendously. He was very affordable and always easy to get a hold if when I had questions. Even after my case was settled he still calls to make sure I have no questions. He is an Awesome man. I would recommend to anyone.

Excellent attorney
Timothy is an excellent attorney. Not only did he get me out of a bind when the odds were against me. He went over many scenarios on which way I wanted to fight my case. Very responsive in returning your calls and keeping you informed with your case. He was confident and explained to me what would work best. He did very well to get my whole DWI case dismissed in less than a year. I would recommend him to everyone who is in a bind.

Great work on my case
I was extremely satisfied with the work that Tim did on my case. I had a DUI with BAC of 0.15 and above. He negotiated and had it reduced to an obstruction of highway. Tim was professional and worked with me along the way, explaining everything meticulously. He is very knowledgeable about the law and is easily the most flexible lawyer I have worked with. He also was very understanding regarding my payments. I will recommend him to every one with a DUI case

Got My Case Dismissed!
I contacted Tim after I was arrested. He was very helpful over the phone and we decided to meet up in person to go over the case. He is very reasonably priced and very knowledgeable. I hired him to be my lawyer. He got my travel restriction dropped as well as succeeded in getting my DWI dismissed completely.

You NEED him on your team!
I called Mr. Rountree Monday 3/20/17 after 5pm and he answered! What lawyer answers that quick? I told him that my husband had a MTR warrant and would be arrested Wednesday when he went to probation. My husband had a serious case of DWI 4th and has been on probation for 3 years out of his 8 year sentence. Mr. Rountree not only gave me the pros and cons of this case but gave us a free consultation and an immediate face to face meeting for Tuesday. My husband went to his office on Tuesday and hired him. My husband came home worried cause he knew the DA wanted to throw the book at him and most lawyers have a bad reputation. Mr. Rountree called us about 3 times Tuesday night until about 9pm to prep us for court the next day. We went to court this morning 3/22/17 at 9:30am and Mr. Rountree didn't even let us try to fight our case...he did it all! We didn't have to defend our side of the story or even answer any questions. At one point the probation lady went to talk to my husband while Mr. Rountree was telling me the good news and he literally jumped off the bench (left me talking lol) and ran to my husbands aid! My husband was reinstated with probation and NO JAIL TIME. At 11:00 am I was bringing my husband home. Life happens and no one is perfect but if you have dwi(s), you'll need Mr. Rountree on your side! He listens to you, he cares about your family and your well being. I can honestly go on and on about Mr. Rountree but if you want to find out for yourself...call him now! I bet he'll answer you. He'll also stop what he's doing to listen to you. Thank you Mr. Rountree, you have blessed my family with another chance to get it right.

Dwi
He worked very hard and honest on my case. Whenever I needed help on anything to Do with my case he was there at all times of the day. I had full access to my case online as well and he always sent reminders. He dropped my case from a dwi to lower offense and I still have my license. No jail time at all.
