Jim Butler is one of the few attorneys in Houston to focus exclusively on drunk driving defense.
“I chose DWI because I really want to help people, My clients are good, hardworking people. When they come to me, they’re worried about the future—they’re afraid of losing their jobs, they’re concerned that their insurance rates will go up. My goal is to help these people return to normal, productive lives.”
Mr. Butler believes that while DWI laws are good laws that should be enforced, he also believes that many innocent people end up arrested. “Many people don’t realize that it’s perfectly legal for an adult in Texas to drink alcohol and drive—as long as that adult maintains his or her mental and physical faculties. And the problem with most field sobriety tests is that they don’t give you the whole picture—if a person is nervous or tired, or even if they have a medical condition, they might ‘fail’ a test, even if they’re not intoxicated.
Don't forget, all it takes is reasonable doubt to get your case dismissed. I can help raise that reasonable doubt.
Please remember -
You are not guilty of a Texas DWI just because an officer says you are. Every day, Harris County juries acquit citizens accused of drunk driving.
You've seen the signs throughout Houston: Drink, drive, go to jail. They make it seem cut and dry. Well, it's not. Let me decide how well you performed on the field sobriety tests. Ask me to double-
It really isn't that hard to contest your DWI / DUI. But you do need to act now. In every DWI case that my law office handles, our first step is to request an Administrative License Revocation hearing to fight your potential driver's license suspension. Remember, you have just 15 days after your arrest to request a hearing to save your driver's license.

BEST DUI LAWYER!!
Posted by Josh
If you need a DUI lawyer this is your lawyer!! I was charged with a DUI and illegal carry of a weapon. I blew a .14 the night of the arrest. Mr. Jim Butler got all charges dropped completely. I had to pay a little extra to go to Jury Trial but it was worth every penny. Mr. Butler worked very hard in the case and the end result was NOT GUILTY!!! So if you want a lawyer that is going to be knowledgeable of every end of the law and work the hardest he can to help your situation you want to hire Mr. Butler!!
Posted by Mary,
Yes I would recommend this lawyer. I knew the day I met him and shook his hand that he was going to be my lawyer. He was truly caring, not just as a client, but as a person, and never made me feel less than. He did all he could for me dedicating many hours on may cause. After 10 resets, we finally got a dismissal. He is kind, caring and really like to get to know his clients.

Mr. Butler was a pleasure to have as my lawyer. This was my first time ever being in trouble and he helped me in every way possible to make sure I wouldn't stress. He knows a lot about what goes on with DWI and kept me informed on a lot of things. I would recommend him greatly because he is nice and will do the best job for you
DWI found Not Guilty
Posted by Marcus
I decided to go to trial. We selected the jury that day and the trial was the next morning. James gave a good opening statement. Then the two officers were brought up to the stand one at a time. James questions were good and pointed and it really helped my case. Then the closing arguments were given. The DA gave a pretty good closing argument, but James' was better.
It only took the jury 15 minutes to deliberate, and they came back with a verdict of "Not Guilty". James is very knowledgeable in the area of DWI cases and I would reccomend him to everyone facing a DWI charge.
Mr. Butler has my highest recommendation
Posted by Kristofer
I simply cannot put into words how much I appreciate Mr. Butler saving my life.
If you are facing a similar situation being accused of a crime, Jim Butler without question is the man I recommend.
In my search for an attorney I spoke with a lot of high priced attorneys and although they seemed like good attorneys too, Jim Butler was the best and was no where near the price of the others, even though he could charge as much as the other top attorneys.
Thank You Mr. Butler for saving my life!!!
With me every step of the way!!
Posted by Jess
What a great firm. This attorney was referred to me by a friend who had used him previously. It was my first DWI charge and of course I was nervous. Jim's office kept me up to date and informed with all my court proceedings. Everyone around me kept telling me there was no way I was going to win my trial, because I did blow over the .08. I had confidence with my defense team and knew I could trust them. Am boy am I glad I did. After 19 months of court procedures my case was dismissed. Thank you so much to the Law Office of JIm Butler!!!
His dedication to me and my case is appreciated.

Caring expert dwi attorney
Posted by a DUI client
His office is home like. You immediately feel comfortable and as at ease as you can in the situation (being accused of dwi).
Mr. Butler worked out a fine only deal for me. I was/am ecstatic about the outcome. The state would not dismiss due to my level of intoxication,understandably. I was fearful of jail time or lengthy probation with so many restrictions, however mr. Butler worked wonders. I paid a fine and put this behind me. I recommend the law office of Jim butler to any of you out there who need expert advice, expert performance, and most of all a caring team who feel passionate about their positions. Thank you Jim & Amanda -
Jim took a sincere interest in my well being and worked dilligently and successfully to keep my TDL and dismiss DWI charges.
Posted by Diane S,
He immediately scheduled a hearing so that my TDL would not be automatically suspended (I had refused breathalizer) which we won. He disected the events of the day leading up to my arrest and contacted witnesses. Mr Butler had a mission and that was to have my charges dismissed....and he was successful. On May 7th the State of Texas dismissed my DWI charges and disposed the case. I would highly recommend Mr Butler to anyone who has been charged with a DWI...he is the best!
Nothing but the Truth
Posted by Andrew
Jim is very straightforward, within the first 10 minutes of our meeting he had already informed me of the complications and opportunities in my case. I had the misfortune to land into county criminal court #2, therefore was not eligible for the advert program available in all other criminal courts in the county. The lack of this option to me made it critical that I understand all the possible outcomes before deciding to take my case to trail. HECK yeah i went to trail. MAN and what a trail it was. I won't ever forget how stupid Jim made the cops that pulled me over look. In my case it was important too my family and I, since the jury found me guilty. I can live with the fact that they needed to lie to take money away from me. ANYWAYS Jim was amazing, he was prepared and has a presence in the court room that makes it easy to sit in the court 2 days while the jury is deciding.
A Jurors Impression
Posted by Ronald
I met Mr Butler as a juror in a DWI case. While I've never been a juror or involved in any DWI case before, I was thorougly impressed by his knowledge of the process and procedures involved in the prosecution of such a case. His defense of his client made me come to believe that the defendant's stop, field test, arrest and the police procedures while in custody were all in question. To be honest, I still believe this. Ultimately though under the conditions given to decide the case we decided guilty. But it was a hung jury right till the end.
If I ever find myself in a position to require services in this area, he'll be the first man I call.
THE ABSOLUTELY BEST!!!!
Posted by Cameron
Always kept me informed. Never left me waiting. Very knowledgeable. Always up front. Cuts through all the b.s. that our court system is about. Will not steer you wrong. Treats you like a person, not like a number. If you have a DUI/DWI, choose this guy!!!
My dwi case
Posted by a DUI client
I got a DWI case and I hired Jim. He was so helpful and assured me after going through the details of the case that we could win if we went to trial. He gave me the reasons why he taught so and also told me what the law was in regards to the case. Sure enough my case got dismissed on one of the grounds that he had mentioned. I am indeed very greatfull and I highly recommend jim. He is flexible, remembered details even when I didn't and he worked with me on my payment. Thanks Jim
Jim Butler Went the Extra Mile
Posted by Joseph
Over the course of 4 court appearances, and several consultations, Mr. Butler came to know thoroughly, my grandson and the circumstances surrounding his case, and combined that with firm legal knowledge, and a winning style with the District Attorneys, to ultimately get the charges dismissed. He never lobbied for a preemptive plea bargain, or any other outcome than dismissal, and was ready to present a well-

Very smart with dwi cases. Commands respect in the court room and is very aggressive in the case and really makes u feel comfortable during the whole process. I would highly recommend him and is worth every penny.
Posted by Samuel,
Mr. Butler handled a legal case for me and I am very satisfied with the outcome. I can say that I received professional and courteous service from Mr. Butler and his staff. I believe without his expertise the result would not have been in my favor. I would recommend him to someone I know in need of a good attorney.
