THE DEFENSE TEAM YOU NEED

The attorneys and staff at James & Hightower Attorneys At Law 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.
