Spotlight On: Kimberly Griffin Tucker (Texas)

You get to know someone well when you spend nearly 3 years writing a book together.
Kimberly Griffin Tucker is my co-author on the upcoming Texas DWI Manual, which is going to be re-published this year. We also try some cases together occasionally.
Denton County is Kimberly’s stomping ground. She is an amazing trial lawyer who works harder on trial prep than most attorneys I know. I asked Kimberly to present at the David Burrows Annual DWI Seminar in Arlington this year where I’m serving as co-course director. She will do an amazing job.
Charged with a DWI in Denton County? Call Kimberly Griffin Tucker.
From her website:
Regardless of the type of criminal charge you are facing, Mrs. Tucker's clients receive personal care and attention, along with aggressive, vigorous and experienced advocacy. When Mrs. Tucker takes on a case, her clients' needs and goals always come first. They can rely on her and her staff to be approachable, responsive, efficient and effective.
She understands the confusion and embarrassment an arrest can bring and attempts to make her clients as comfortable as possible throughout the case. She considers herself an attorney and counselor. She tries to make the lives of her clients as normal as possible during this stressful time and help them get back to life as it was with an eye to getting their arrests off the record or concealed.
We all know there is an inequality of power and material resources in the criminal justice system. The government has a large staff of lawyers, police and agents, sophisticated crime labs and experts, and a huge budget provided by the taxpayers. This gives them a tremendous advantage because the legal system is based on the premise that "the whole truth" is that which is presented at the trial. If a defendant cannot challenge the government's case or submit his or her own witnesses, then the jury may accept whatever evidence the prosecutor produces.
The Law Office of Kimberly Griffin Tucker understands this and defends her clients with a zealous fervor. Her firm's strength lies in preparation, investigation, motion practice, and trial presentation. Mrs. Tucker is also well regarded because she demonstrates the strictest personal and professional ethics. She responds promptly to telephone calls, reports regularly on case developments, and stays on top of changes in the law. By focusing on the defense of criminal cases alone, the Law Office of Kimberly Griffin Tucker can assure you the highest quality legal representation, enhanced by the personal attention you should expect to receive and will receive from both Mrs. Tucker and her staff.
