I retained the Law Offices of George Scharmen to handle my case & I was very impressed by his law firm & the time they spent on my case. He was able to get my case dismissed!! I highly recommend this law firm.

I was George Scharnen's paralegal for ten years before I had a baby in 2011. He is a well known lawyer throughout the United States and Texas. It was a pleasure working for such a top notch lawyer.
Mr. Scharmen would never guarantee a result. It's unethical and he simply wouldn't do that. I know that from working for him for a decade.
Mr. Scharmen or any lawyer for that fact is not "two hours" late for court. YOU must be in court at a certain time to avoid a warrant for YOUR arrest. Each lawyer goes to courts such as Federal or felony courts first and will get to you and your court as soon as they can. On any given day there is a courtroom full of people waiting for their lawyer. This is just the way it goes in an overcrowded court room. Yes, if you are arrested for DWI you will be in a court waiting. The judges' run the courtrooms not the lawyers and that's what they require.
Mr. Scharmen knows about every case in his case load. If you ask him something specific will he know every detail? No. But he will know every aspect and more at the time of trial.
Mr. Scharmen is one of the best DWI lawyers anyone could retain. Don't listen to silly little complaints. Look at the big picture and his track record and appellate record is exceptional.

Promised me i wouldnt have it on my record and got screwed . Once i paid him was late to court by two hours, was worthless at representing me. Id call and ask about my case and would never remember my case or would tell me he will look into it and call later and never would. Even the judge told me afterward he did a horrible job at representing me.

I can highly recommend George Scharmen as an amazing attorney and just all around great guy. He's been practicing law for over three decades. Just saying that a man like George "practices" law brings a chuckle. He knows the law. He fights hard for his clients and they have a true advocate in him. He's always learning and constantly eager to know the next thing coming his way in the state of Texas as it relates to DUI law. I highly recommend George Scharmen.
