Summary

I've obtained dismissals on over 500 criminal cases and 1st chaired over 335 jury trials, obtaining hundreds of NOT GUILTY verdicts. After working on my craft at a large law firm for nearly a decade, I founded my own boutique DWI and criminal defense law firm, taking on fewer clients in order to form closer attorney-client relationships. I take pride in providing personalized, responsive customer service and obtaining the best outcomes possible for my clients. If you or a loved one are caught in the unfortunate position of being prosecuted for alleged criminal wrongdoing, call me today for a free consultation. Put my trial experience and reputation with judges and prosecutors to work for you. Visit my website at www.josephruizlaw.com or reach me directly at 281-300-8695 to begin your defense today.
