OVERVIEW

Generally, it is safe to say that when you come to the realization that you need to hire a lawyer, it is not

under the best of circumstances.  How do you know who to hire?  What should I be looking for in a

lawyer?  What is it going to cost me?  These are all questions that will run through your mind. Here

at the Law Office of James C. Twine, PLLC we provide free consultations.  The reason for free

consultations is so both you and Mr. Twine can meet to determine if he is the right fit for your needs.

The Attorney-Client relationship is a two way street.  He believes that you should feel comfortable with

your lawyer, develop trust, which leads to great communication.  Mr. Twine wants to get you the

information you need to make decisions about your case.  Your relationship with our office is of the

utmost importance to us.  Information, communication, and honesty are the principles which the

Law Office of James C. Twine, PLLC is founded upon.

Driving While Intoxicated: It is important to hire an attorney that understands the laws and procedures in

dealing with DWI.  Mr. Twine has a wealth of knowledge and resources when it comes to DWI.  It is one of

the more complex crimes you can be accused of by the State of Texas.  With the growing number of

people living in the Austin area, which leads to congested roadways, and an increase in motor vehicle

related deaths, there has been a concentrated effort in combating intoxicated driving. You need an

attorney that can explain to you that a DWI has two parts.  There is the civil aspect and criminal aspect of

a DWI. The civil aspect deals with your drivers license, and goes through a process with the Texas

Department of Public Safety, known as the Administrative License Revocation or ALR.  It is to your

benefit to contact an attorney the moment you are released from jail so that you can understand the ALR

process and the timelines associated with that process. An attorney will help you navigate the criminal

process.  But a DWI Attorney will be able to explain the different aspects of a DWI investigation.  Mr.

Twine possesses knowledge in Field Sobriety Tests, breath tests, and blood tests.  He has unique

perspective, because as a paralegal for a prominent DWI attorney, he typically was the person who

analyzed the investigative process to assist attorneys.  From this experience, Mr. Twine takes on a DWI

cases with a high level of detail and scrutiny.  He also understands the judicial process from his time

working for Williamson County under a County Court at Law Judge, and utilizes that experience to help

you navigate the criminal justice system. If you have been accused of DWI, do not hesitate, call James

Twine to help you fight for your drivers license and your liberty.  Information is the key to a successful

defense in DWI.

CIVIL MATTERS RELATED TO CRIMINAL ISSUES

  • Non Disclosures
  • Occupational Driver’s License
  • Expunctions

Depending on your circumstances you may be eligible to petition and request a non disclosure or

expunction.  Your eligibility is determined by looking at your criminal case information against the

State statutes.  Once we’ve determined your eligibility, we can start the process of cleaning up your

arrest record. If you have issues with your driver’s license due to a DWI or DWLI, you may be eligible

for an Occupational Driver’s License or ODL.  This license allows you to continue to drive to work and

take care of necessary day to day issues.  Please contact our office to see if you are eligible for an ODL.

BANKRUPTCY

Is your house about to be foreclosed on?  Drowning in Credit Card Debt or Medical Bills?  You may be

eligible to file for a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.  Contact our office to schedule a consultation

and let us help you relieve your financial woes.
