I have known Roy Warren for 17 years. During that time, I have seen him in court with numerous clients. He is well liked by his clients and anyone in need of a criminal law or personal injury attorney will be well taken care of if they retain Roy Warren to represent their interests.

Super Lawyer Roy L. Warren
Mr. Warren represented me on a motion to revoke probation and he was able to successfully get my probation reinstated. I was charged with a felony possession of a controlled substance. I also have a lengthy criminal history. Not only was Mr Warren able to get my probation reinstated he kept me well informed about my case and show the up most compassion about my situation. He never once judged me or said I was a bad person he looked at the facts of the case and went from there making the prosecution prove their case. I would highly recommend Mr Warren to anybody who is struggling with a criminal charges. I have also hired Mr. Warren to represent me in a car wreck case. Once again he showed me that he is one of the best attorneys in the state of Texas. He made sure that I had a doctor and once I was finished with my treatment he was able to get me the most money from the insurance company. Mr. Warren is very knowledgeable about the law and is very much appreciated.

Summary

Roy is a Texan, graduating from Texas City High School. After getting life's hard lessons for 10 years he finally entered college, where despite his late start he earned accolades and academic scholarships. He graduated in the top 10% of his class in just 3 years while also working. After he graduated with a Bachelor of Accountancy from University of North Dakota, he passed the CPA exam and entered law school. Roy and his wife Laurie (they met when they were only 15 and married at 18), along with their 4 children, moved back to Texas so Roy could enroll at South Texas College of Law, in Houston. While attending STCL he worked with Super Lawyer Alton Todd in Alvin Texas. Roy credits his legal success to the mentor-ship of Alton Todd where Roy became a successful and professional lawyer protecting people's dreams across Texas. The appeals he wrote, starting his 1st year in law school (as a clerk) appealing lower court decisions to Appellate Courts and State Supreme Courts resulted in reversal of cases and laws to protect Constitutional rights of people. In fact, the first week after becoming a lawyer he won his 1st trial against a well known Super Lawyer that had been practicing 20 years. The next week Roy was winning again, obtaining a reversal on an appeal to the Corpus Christi Court of Appeals. He had 3 seasoned lawyers as opponents; one was so well known an argument against Joe Jamail was published law school books Roy studied in law school. For the past 31 years Roy has earned a reputation to be creative, successful, and well regarded by clients, peers and judges alike. Throughout his life and career he has demonstrated he is intelligent, fearless and a winner. He has been fighting his whole life so he is ready to fight for you. He is never judgmental of anyone and always respectful. He is just the kind of lawyer you need because he cares, understands, and will compassionately fight for his clients to protect their dreams and freedom.

Fees
  • Free Consultation
    My fee depends on the type of case, for instance defending a criminal charge I must charge a retainer, personal injury cases I take on a contingency fee so you do not have to pay up front, workers compensation depends on the situation but if you think your do not need a lawyer ask yourself why the carriers have them.
  • Contingent Fees
    My contingent fees for workers compensation is 25%; for PI cases my fees are 1/3 of the recovery at most.
  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    With respect to criminal defense I must charge by the hour but I always give defendants a cap that my total charge for fees will never surpass; unless there is some extraordinary circumstance (which so far in 25 years has never happened).

With respect to worker's compensation few people can match my experience. I have been involved with more than 4,000 worker's compensation cases by: (1) representing injured workers (IW) at all levels, including judicial review (jury trial); (2) working for insurance carriers, (3) teaching or moderating WC to other attorneys (3) working as administrative Judge for the Appeals Panel with DWC reviewing cases to ensure legal and factually sufficient reasons to affirm or reverse; (4) testifying as an expert witness on WC matters. Also I represent those charged with crimes whether it’s a traffic violation, misdemeanor, murder, or First Degree Felonies. Regarding Personal Injury cases, I have represented people for violation of Constitution rights, injured in automobiles, slip and falls, injured when sitting on a broken toilet seat, and I even assisted people with having their tortoises returned

Q. Ima trying to know how long ima be locked up for
A: Because you asked this under "DWI" I will answer based on DWI 1st. Each case must be evaluated on its own factual merits, so the range of punishment can greatly vary. For a DWI guilty plea, I have had cases where plea bargains were negotiated for time served, (an over night arrest) and up to 30 days jail (actual time was 10 days because the client was given 3 for one credit). Other cases were negotiated for a term of probation (not less than 6 months) for obstruction of highway, reckless driving and of course DWI. The penalty for a DWI 1st (with no complicating factors like having a child in the vehicle) would be a maximum of 1 year in county jail (actually becomes 6 months with 2 for one credit) and maximum fine of $4,000. Hope this helps.
Q. Why wont the prosecutor throw put my DWI case when i obviously didn't do it?
A: I am sorry for your troubles. If the State cannot prove the "amount" or a quantitative level of the THC that would cause "loss of use of your normal mental or physical faculties" it will not be able to prove your case. In that situation my opinion would be to take the case to trial. Good luck.
Q. Can an employer refuse to pay their staff after saying that they would for a certain amount of time?
A: I would look at the promise to pay as a contract type of agreement. To have a legal contract there must be an offer and acceptance and "consideration". "Consideration" means that each party agrees to provide something of value to the other. This can be an affirmative offering of something, or an agreement not to do something. Thus, for instance, consideration can involve agreeing not to compete with another business. Second, contracts require a clear offer and acceptance. Contracts are not necessarily created just because one party offers something to another. Typically, a clear acceptance is required. In offering and accepting a contract, the parties must also have a “meeting of the minds” as to what the contract entails. Both parties cannot believe that they are agreeing to entirely different contracts. I would believe that the employees would have accepted the offer so the only defense could be that the terms were not specific enough to be enforced, such the wage rate to be paid and whether it was to be wage replacement. If the employer refuses to follow through perhaps you would be eligible for unemployment benefits. Best of luck to you.
