If are charged with a crime, you need a defense attorney who is always one step ahead of the prosecution.


Buck Johnson has a proven track record
as both a prosecutor and defender in Texas courts.


Dallas DWI LawyerThe testimonials say it all: Buck Johnson's years of experience as a prosecutor with the Dallas County Attorney's Office have helped scores of clients. Buck has won against seemingly impossible odds, elevating his standing to one of the premier defense attorneys in the state. He has defended clients in more than 15 Texas counties, as well as Federal Courts around the state.

His success as a defense attorney has earned the notice of his peers.

In 2016:

  •   • Named a "DWI Rising Star Super Lawyer" for the fourth consecutive year.
  •   • Serves as Chairman of the Dallas Bar Association's Criminal Section.
  •   • Presented to the Dallas Bar Association about "The Nuts and Bolts of Occupational Driver's Licenses".

A Dallas native, Buck resigned from the Dallas County District Attorney's Office in 2009 to begin defending citizens accused of the same crimes he once prosecuted. Within months Buck was winning trials and securing dismissals for his defense clients.

Buck has exceptional success in defending DWI cases. In 2014, Buck was asked to address the Dallas Bar Association about DWI Trial Strategies. In 2015, he was recognized as one of the "10 Best for Client Satisfaction" by the American Institute of DUI/DWI Attorneys and won the "Clients' Choice" award from Avvo, an online legal services consortium.

As a former assistant district attorney -- and one of the most respected in the Dallas County Courthouse -- Buck gained invaluable insight into the prosecutorial process for crimes varying from DWI to capital murder. His final assignment as a prosecutor was in the Organized Crime Division, also known as "drug court." While there, Buck never lost a jury trial. He has since turned that success into wins for defense clients.
