DWI & Criminal Defense Attorney in San Angelo, Texas

Put "The dwi guy" in your corner

At Danford Law Firm, we focus on DWI & Criminal Defense, backed by attorney Harold J. Danford's almost 30 years of experience as a prosecutor, defense attorney, law enforcement agency director, and city judge.

Harold began his career as a prosecutor and rose to become the Director of the Texas Department of Public Safety's DWI/ALR program, where he oversaw dozens of lawyers across the state. He is the only former Director who now defends those charged with drinking and driving.

Known as "The DWI Guy" to colleagues and clients alike, Harold is a leading attorney in this area of criminal law. Over the course of his career, he has successfully handled thousands of cases, represented hundreds of clients at trial, and won numerous cases on appeal. The greater legal community regularly taps his knowledge and experience and he has been called on to teach tactics and strategies to other lawyers at several seminars.

He has been included in such lists as "The Top Attorneys of North America," certified as Lead Counsel for Drunk Driving Defense by Thomson Reuters, and ranked a "Top Attorney" by Avvo. He is peer-rated "Distinguished" for high professional achievement by Martindale-Hubbell.

He is a proud graduate of Angelo State University and St. Mary's University School of Law.

State v. T.M - Not Guilty

Our client was charged with DWI. She had a clean record and completely maintained her innocence, but the prosecutors refused to dismiss the case. We took it to trial and the jury found her not guilty.

State v. S.B. - Dismissed

Our client was charged with a felony DWI. We scoured the evidence and identified several problems with the case. The state reduced the charge to a misdemeanor, but we did not stop fighting until the case was dismissed.

State v. F.N. - won on appeal

Our client faced up to life in prison for his 6th DWI. We believed his right to a speedy trial had been violated and convinced the judge to dismiss the case. The state appealed but we won that too.

ex parte rpgp - won on appeal

After our client's DWI was dismissed, the prosecutors objected to his expunction. We fought the case all the way to the Texas Supreme Court and won, and expanded the right to thousands more Texans.
