The skills I acquired as a former police officer has prepared me to fight for your rights. I know the law like the back of my hand, and my goal is to use my previous experiences and knowledge to your advantage. I want to help you move forward. I believe that a mistake does not represent who you are, and should not define your future. When you work with me, you'll get a passionate defender who will stand by you every step of the way.
All DWI defenses start with how and why you were stopped by the police. My DWI law firm will work to uncover every detail, as a minor detail can make all the difference.
If the police did not have a ‘reasonable and articulable’ basis for stopping you, any evidence gathered must be suppressed, and the police will not have a case.
I will investigate how your field sobriety tests were administered. Strict procedures must be followed and many DWI cases are dropped based on how these tests were conducted.
Based on my experience and knowledge of DWI law, I will let you know how strong of a factor your field sobriety test plays in your defense.
One of the most complex aspects of a DWI case involves evaluating breath and blood tests. There is a wide range of factors that can influence both the admissibility and accuracy of a breath or a blood test. In many instances, the outcome of this evaluation will have a major impact on the strength of your defense.
If you have been charged with DWI you need an attorney that is well versed in interpreting the nuances of breath and blood testing. Don’t risk your defense to an inexperienced lawyer, call me today.
"Best attorney in Houston. He will fight tooth and nail for your freedom!"
"A DWI lawyer who cares about his clients. He is honest about your options."
"Kenneth Mitchell is a very gifted attorney. He's reliable and extremely smart."
I began my journey into adulthood by joining the Army at 17 years old. I was later assigned to 3/62 ADA in the 10th Mountain Division near Watertown, New York.
After the Army, I entered a career in law enforcement. Prior to starting my own practice, I was a police officer for 13 years. I trained in the Central Patrol Division, and I later worked the city jails. After my time working the jail, I went to Northeast Patrol and later Hit and Run. During my time in Hit and Run, I completed Northwestern University’s Advanced Accident Investigators Course and Reid Interview and Interrogations Course. Later, I went to Robbery Division, South Central Patrol, Northwest Patrol, and was merged with North Belt Patrol.
I entered law school while working as a police officer. I grew in knowledge and maturity, and I soon realized the injustices that were being done to people due to their lack of knowledge or resources. I opened up my own law firm and decided to help people defend their constitutional rights. I will hold the State to its burden, to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty.
I regularly continue my education in DWI-focused courses for attorneys. I belong to professional organizations and often network with fellow attorneys dedicated to defending clients on their DWI charges in Harris County, Texas, and nationally. I am a member of the Texas Bar College, National College of DUI Defense, Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association, and Harris County Criminal Lawyer’s Association.
