Reduced, Dismissed, Expunged
For those of you in professions that are highly critical of DWI’s, James Gill and Team are your best option in Travis County. If you hold an occupational license or endorsement issued by USCG, FAA, DOT, State Bar, MD, etc. The law offices of James Gill will get your case reduced, dismissed and Expunged. Upon receiving a citation for a DWI offense in Travis county I sought counsel from 12 different law firms. I settled for three within the first day. Initially I picked a firm that had a more informative website and was able to take my case within twenty-four hours of arrest. Two months and $9,000 later I dropped my initial choice because the firm did not understand the importance of getting the case dismissed and protecting my namesake and license. Within the first ten minutes of my interview with Mr. Gill he fully appreciated my stance and promptly put together a case. I got my case Reduced, Dismissed, and Expunged within six months. Again for those of you regulated professionals give James Gill a call and he will deliver as promised: reduced, dismissed, expunged.

Highly Recommended
I highly recommend James Gill for your legal needs. He is effective, intelligent, and caring. He has always kept me informed every step of the way, which made me more comfortable during the chaotic legal process. He worked extremely hard. And my DWI case was dismissed!!!

Negligent and incompetent
James Gill and his office staff are why lawyers get a bad reputation. Due to their negligence on my case (they overlooked a hearing to obtain an occupational license) I unknowingly drove my car illegally for three months. When I found out after asking repeatedly when this hearing would take place their response was " this is not standard protocol, sorry". Unacceptable. He also forgot important paperwork at another hearing, and his office continually lost information I sent him. After my conviction he insisted the consequences the judge gave me were non negotiable despite my insistence to present the judge with information I deemed important. At this point I hired another lawyer who took me seriously and presented said information to the judge and in less than a week she was able to do what James Gill said was impossible. Don't waste your time or money here.
