In Austin, during no refusal weekend, I got pulled over for speeding on Congress (11 mph over). I had been drinking earlier in the night, and refused to blow (officer did report that I did well on the field sobriety tests). Subsequently, I was taken to jail and charged with a DWI and UCW. Hired Matt Shrum the next day. From day 1, Matt and his staff were extremely knowledgeable and professional. Matt has always been in communication and is well versed in criminal law. He kept every appointment and was always accessible. 1.5 years after my initial arrest, we pled to obstruction of a highway. DWI and UCW were dismissed. I am extremely satisfied. Matt is awesome!

If you need an attorney for DWI or anything else, trust me, Matt is your guy. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. I got a DWI and needed to find an attorney. It was my first DWI, so I really didn't have a clue how to pick the right/best attorney (considering there are so many). After doing a lot of research and looking through the pile of marketing letters I had received through mail from different attorneys, Matt was one of five or so that I called or met with. Long story short, of all the attorneys I talked to (and they were all highly competent, pricey, known attorneys), in my opinion, Matt was on another level mentally. A strategic thinker who looks a things from different angles (we talked for a while). I also looked up how many cases he had working (which was a large number), as well as his past results. I was impressed. I also learned that he was a former prosecutor. I came to the conclusion that he was intelligent, highly competent, and a hard worker. Just what I was looking for. All in all, what I observed and experienced is that Matt knows the game from both a prosecutor and criminal defense perspective, and was well liked by the prosecutors and judge. I'd recommend him to my family and closest friends without hesitation. He got my DWI reduced to an obstruction of highway charge. Thank you Matt.

Mr. Shrum was highly recommended to me by a friend of mine who had used his services before. The first phone call that I made to Matt indicated to me that he was more than willing and able to assist me in my legal matter. I found Matt to be straightforward with me, knowledgeable, helpful and above all available. Because of my job and my schedule, Matt was always able to work with me whenever a court appearance was warranted and his extensive knowledge of the Travis County court system as well as the local municipal field was an immense help in my situation.
It is with great confidence and pride that I recommend Mr. Shrum for your legal needs.

I have known Matt since law school and seen how he has worked to develop and grow his practice. I trust Matt with many of my criminal referrals, and find that he handles them quickly and with great results for my clients or friends. I highly recommend Matt if you are in need of a criminal attorney, and wholeheartedly endorse him.
