Jamie owns and maintains the Intoxilyzer 5000 68EN breath testing machine that is used in the State of Texas for breath testing in DWI cases. This machine helps him prepare and experiment with various defenses associated with cases in which clients provide a breath test. It is effective for cases in which a client refuses to blow as well as when they attempt to blow but are deemed to have refused by the arresting officer. The DWI Dude also owns several of the hand-held alcohol detection devices that are used by law enforcement officers throughout Texas and the Nation. He is qualified as a practitioner and instructor of the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests and has taught the class to law enforcement personnel, private investigators and criminal defense attorneys. Lastly, he is a trained and certified phlebotomist. A phlebotomist is an individual trained to draw blood for laboratory tests. The State may have drawn your blood for their case against you. The DWI Dude is trained to handle your case and stay one step ahead of the overzealous law enforcement officers and prosecuting attorneys that believe getting a conviction is more important than doing the right thing!

Jamie is dedicated to the zealous defense of his fellow citizens who are accused of DWI, DUI, or other alcohol related matters and drug offenses. He is an attorney who has developed close relationships with a variety of DWI Associated Professionals that assist in the defense of those charged with DWI.
