It is not news that for anyone facing criminal charges that the outcome of the case can vary wildly for many reasons. Occasionally, the facts are too grave or the defendant has said too much for any attorney to work a miracle. In other cases, though, the success can depend entirely upon the experience of the criminal defense attorney. Mr. Pham has 13 years of experience in and around Houston and the Harris County court system. That experience, coupled with his intimate knowledge of the court system and his involvement in several Texas and national boards, have led to an enviable success record.
The high quality of representation provided by Mr. Pham is demonstrated by his success in having cases dismissed or reaching an alternative disposition.
Mr. Pham has won dismissals for clients accused of DWI and DUI by demonstrating to juries and judges that (among other things).
- The traffic stop was illegal
- A search violated the Constitution
- Unreliable breathalyzer tests
- Field Sobriety Tests were administered incorrectly or without regard to the accused’s physical condition

As anyone who has ever been involved in a drug case knows, there are a wealth of defenses and potential outcomes for those cases.

In other cases, Mr. Pham has successfully negotiated withheld adjudications or drug court, both of which ultimately end in the case against his client being dismissed.
