In Deep East Texas
We understand what’s at stake if you are accused of a crime or facing a DWI. We have the experience and skills to change the outcome. The legal team at James & Hightower is here to fight for you.
THE DEFENSE TEAM YOU NEED
The attorneys and staff at Hightower, Franklin, and James, PLLC. are highly equipped and highly committed. Our team has 60 years of experience defending people charged with state and federal crimes. Tim James is among the small number of Texas lawyers who is board-certified in criminal defense. As a former Nacogdoches County district attorney, former Houston police officer and former Chief of the Organized Crime Division for the Texas Attorney General’s Office, he knows how the government builds its case.
Sean Hightower’s advanced training in the same tools used by law enforcement enables him to credibly challenge a DWI arrest. Our in-house investigators help us gather evidence to counter the allegations and tell your side of the story. You should never face the government alone. You need a team on your side.
Tanner Franklin’s reputation as a civil litigator has led to millions in recovery for his clients in State and Federal Court.

LEGAL ADVOCACY FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS
