Why is Thomas & Paulk the Right Choice?
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released data that stated in 2009 over 1.4 million people were arrested for drinking and driving. While driving under the influence is a serious hazard which deserved to be treated as such, it is unfortunate to note that not everyone who is arrested deserved to be. While well-intentioned, the criminal justice system is simply flawed. Mistakes made during the arresting process or by the arresting officer can wrongfully incriminate an innocent person - making it appear as if they had broken the law when they simply hadn't. At Thomas & Paulk, it is our belief that someone who didn't break the law doesn't deserve the consequences.
While we do not condone drinking & driving, we do support justice. It is for this reason that we have dedicated ourselves to providing our clients with the high-quality and aggressive legal representation that they deserve in protecting their rights. In each and every case that we take on, we are dedicated to looking into all of the circumstances of the case to ensure that no mistakes were made which may have violated your Constitutional rights. We will launch investigations when necessary and will gather supporting evidence - doing everything possible to challenge the charges and help build a case geared toward your defense.
See How Our Hands-On Experience Can Benefit You
When you are dealing with a criminal arrest, you need to be confident that you are being represented by an attorney who will be able to effectively stand up and fight for your rights. This is simply not the time to take a chance on an inexperienced lawyer and "hope for the best." You need a heavyweight - someone who's taken on these cases before and delivered results. It is for this reason we encourage you to consult with a member of our firm as soon as possible. At Thomas & Paulk, we are proud of what we have been able to achieve over the years and attribute our success primarily to our tireless dedication to the success of our clients.
Our founding attorneys have personally handled over 7,000 criminal cases between them - granting them in-depth experience derived from having actually handled such cases hands-on before. We have been successful throughout this time as well. To see just how successful, all you need to do is take a look at our extensive
case results. Take for example, State v. AV, where our client had been stopped by a police officer who claimed he saw our client running through a red light. After being asked to perform several field sobriety tests, which he allegedly failed, our client was arrested and taken into custody. He refused the breath test.
Despite these daunting circumstances, we took on the case. We recognized how high the stakes were for our client, who was a pilot at risk for losing his license. After a thorough investigation, we were able to build a case that successfully proved our client had been distracted by people surrounding the area during the field sobriety test - which accounted for why he had "failed." After successfully proving this, the State dropped the charges from DUI to reckless driving. As a result, our client didn't lose his license and kept his career.

We are not content to simply offer empty promises and are always dedicated to ensuring that our clients receive the high-quality assistance that they truly deserve.

We invest ourselves in the cases of our clients and do everything that we reasonably can to protect them.
We are also able to draw upon our past experiences in every case that we handle. Take for example our background as state prosecutors.

With our in-depth knowledge of the criminal justice system and our commitment to our clients, we have been successful throughout the years in helping the accused throughout the state.
This commitment had not gone unnoticed.
