About Stephen Hamilton

About me

Board Certified in Criminal Law, AV Rated, tried over 100 jury trials and a published author, I wrote the book on DWI defense.  Before you talk to ANY lawyer get a copy of my DWI Survival Guide, A Citizen's Protection Manual for a DWI Arrest.  While other lawyers "advertise" expereince I will show you how my trial experience of over 100 trials can help in your case.  


My name is Stephen Hamilton; I am a Board Certified Criminal Defense Attorney who focuses on DWI cases.  I have spent my sixteen years of practice on the defense side.  I began to focus on DWI cases in early 2000 after becoming a member of the National College for DUI Defense.  I have hundreds of hours of continuing legal education on criminal law issues and specifically on DWI/DUI defense. 


I am married to an amazing woman, Ressa Hamilton.  We have two wonderful children, Jaxon and Raygen Hamilton who have been a true blessing in my life.  


Because my practice focuses on DWI defense and criminal law, I often speak and lecture to other lawyers about how to try a DWI case.  Local media in cases and issues involving DWI or other intoxication issues has interviewed me.


My goal is to focus on each case that I take and provide personal client attention.  I try more cases in a year than most criminal lawyers try in ten years and I believe that is for several reasons.  First, I like my clients.  If I can help them in their time of stress I want to do whatever I can.  Second, I like trials.  I enjoy the stress that comes with being in trial.  I believe that when I walk in that courtroom, as arrogant as this might sound, I am in charge and the goal is to help my client.
