I'm proud to know Jamie both as an attorney and a friend. He is a tireless advocate for his clients and a vigorous defender of their rights in court. Jamie's background as a police officer gives him a unique perspective on the criminal justice process and some valuable insights as to how often police procedures can trample the rights of the accused. Jamie has training far above and beyond that which is required; training that makes him a formidable opponent in court. Since I first met him, Jamie has always been a proud and vocal proponent of defending the Constitutional rights of the citizen accused, rather than just giving in and taking the quick and easy deal. When you hire Jamie, you've hired a fighter who will bring 100% effort to protecting you and your rights.See MoreRead Less"

There is no question, Jamie Balagia stands out among lawyers. Not only does his physical presence demand attention in the courtroom, but his heart is true and he is champion for justice.

His objective is to level the playing field and to be the resounding voice for those whose voices have been silenced or muffled. Jamie is a fierce advocate and will not back down from a fight, a legal fight that is. Jamie's clients can depend on him giving 110% for their protection and benefit.

I am a lawyer and if ever I need a criminal defense attorney, Jamie would be first on my list to call!

Jamie Balagia is regarded as one of the toughest and most experienced trial attorneys. I was talking to a police officer the other day and he said," If I ever find myself in a legal bind, I know exactly who I would call, Jamie Balagia. He is most respected within the community inside and out of the court room. He has more experience from being an officer and now his 20+ years as an attorney than most lawyers out there and he isn't afraid to fight for his clients as if he was fighting for his own freedom." This is exactly my own person experience as well. Good to know who the cops would call though!See MoreRead Less"

I've know Jamie Balagia for more than a decade through the National College for DUI Defense. His experience as a former police officer benefits him immensely and has given him the tools to pin the ears back of dishonest cops. His training as a breath test operator, and as a phlebotomist likewise, provide him the tools to show up any witness who comes to the stand and tries to muddy the waters. I have consulted with him over the years on issue regarding DUI. His prowess in the courtroom, coupled with his experience outside, made him a formidable opponent to even the most seasoned prosecutors.See MoreRead Less"

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Mr. Balagia for many years now, from when I started my DUI/DWI defense career. Mr. Balagia has always been a good friend and mentor to me in my career. Ive attended seminars all of the county where Mr. Balagia himself is the speaker. He has mastered the areas of SFST, breath testing, and blood testing. He is a top member in the National College for DUI/DWI Defense which is an organization where all of the top DWI lawyers in the country are members,and would advise any good friend or relative to hire him if they were ever arrested in Texas.See MoreRead Less"

I have known Jamie for a number of years, as an expert witness I have testified for him several times. I/we appear in court Jamie is well prepared for trial this makes a big difference in the outcome of the trial,. I have seen Jamie so prepared that the state has made an offer as soon as he walks into the courthouse.

I have seen him set up a jury in his opening and carry it through to his closing, the outcome was beneficial to the client.

I would recommend Jamie to anyone that is in need of a great DWI attorney.

I am a trial lawyer in Virginia; I had the honor of meeting Jamie years ago during a standardized field test course. Jamie was assisting the instructors in teaching the course. Jamie had brought his own evidentiary breath tester to use during the dosing part of the course. His experience as a former police officer added a great deal to the course. I consider him a mentor. If one of my family members needed representation in San Antonio I would send them to Jamie. I give Jamie my highest recommendation!See MoreRead Less"

Jamie is a fellow attorney to whom I have referred cases. The feedback from my clients regarding the service he provided was tremendous. Basically everyone I heard back from were grateful for the recommendation. They expressed a high amount of professionalism and knowledge of the law, procedure and environment in the areas in which Jamie provided the legal service. I call Jamie the I-45-go-to lawyer. He provides services all along the I-45 highway and does it diligently and with great competence.See MoreRead Less"
