About

BiedBurle_0133smaller    My name is Hunter Biederman, and I am a DWI trial attorney who focuses my practice on DWI defense and was recently named a Super Lawyer Rising Star published in Texas Monthly magazine.

In 2012 I was voted “2012 Litigator of the Year” by the four local Collin County Bar Associations.

As a former Assistant District Attorney in Collin County, I have handled hundreds of DWI cases from the side of a prosecutor. I have also handled DWI 2nd’s, Felony DWI’s, Intoxication Assault, and even Intoxication Manslaughter cases.

. . Very few attorneys can say that.

Because of my experience and my focus on DWI defense, I am often referred to as:

                                The GO TO guy for DWI™

The knowledge I have gained is absolutely crucial in order to effectively present a defense for someone charged with DWI or an Intoxication offense.

I graduated from the University of Florida with Honors, and graduated Cum Laude from the University of Florida School of Law. As an undergrad, I majored in Criminology. While in Law School, much of my focus was on criminal law.

As an attorney licensed to practice law in Texas, I have worked on hundreds of DWI & Intoxication cases.

I also believe very strongly in keeping up with the latest defenses and science in DWI Law. Below are just some of the continuing education courses that I have taken in the field of DWI & Intoxication expenses.
