The City of Houston has a population of 2.196 million. Although Houston is smaller than New York, Los Angeles and Chicago it likely has the second most number of drivers of any city in the United States. With 13.5 million licensed drivers in the state of Texas, only the state of California has more licensed drivers with 22.65 million. Being a DWI Lawyer in Houston, Texas necessitates answering many questions related to drunk driving and what to do after getting pulled over by the Houston PD or a Texas State Trooper. Today, we will interview Mario Madrid and ask some questions related to working as a criminal defense lawyer in downtown Houston.

One of my staff members will be more than happy to get your information so I can call you back at your earliest convenience. I am also willing to do in jail visits if that is what the situations requires.

Just how bad is traffic in Houston?
Traffic in Houston is very bad. That said, most of my clients do not contact me because of traffic accidents. We do get traffic violation phone calls but car and truck accidents are not our area of expertise. That said, we can refer you to a personal injury client that can help you determine how much your case is worth. We have a strong relationship several legal professionals that can assist you with your car accident case in Houston, Texas.

Where do you see online legal websites going?
Many of the older lawyers in the City of Houston do not see a website as important. I disagree. I think a web presence will be extremely important moving forward. With more and more people searching for legal services on their laptop or smartphone it makes sense that they would Google “Houston DWI Lawyer” and call the first few results. If my law firm were not in the first few results there is a good chance we would not be getting any calls.
As far as websites go, we recognize that ranking in Google search is the most important factor to our website. While aesthetically we want a beautiful website, we also want it to function within Google search. If we had a beautiful website that did not rank in search it would not do much for our business. Our content team does an outstanding job of making certain our website is up to date and has unique content.
How many people call right after a DWI?
The large majority of individuals that are cited with a DWI make a phone call shortly after they have been pulled over. We have even received phone calls while the police officer was at the vehicle of a client. This is not uncommon as clients want to know their legal rights before they are forced to blow into a breathalyzer. If you want more information on your legal rights, we strongly encourage you to contact us as soon as possible.
