Biography

Board Certified in Criminal Law, AV Rated, tried over 100 jury trials and a published author, I wrote the book on DWI defense. Before you talk to ANY lawyer get a copy of my DWI Survival Guide, A Citizen's Protection Manual for a DWI Arrest. While other lawyers "advertise" expereince I will show you how my trial experience of over 100 trials can help in your case. My name is Stephen Hamilton; I am a Board Certified Criminal Defense Attorney who focuses on DWI cases. I have spent my almost 20 years of practice on the defense side. I began to focus on DWI cases in early 2000 after becoming a member of the National College for DUI Defense. I have hundreds of hours of continuing legal education on criminal law issues and specifically on DWI/DUI defense. Because my practice focuses on DWI defense and criminal law, I often speak and lecture to other lawyers about how to try a DWI case. Local media in cases and issues involving DWI or other intoxication issues has interviewed me. My goal is to focus on each case that I take and provide personal client attention. I try more cases in a year than most criminal lawyers try in ten years and I believe that is for several reasons. First, I like my clients. If I can help them in their time of stress I want to do whatever I can. Second, I like trials. I enjoy the stress that comes with being in trial. I believe that when I walk in that courtroom, as arrogant as this might sound, I am in charge and the goal is to help my client.
