Well Known Lawyer and DA Make Controversial Pre-trial Deal


Controversial Pre-trial Deal

Tony Buzzbee is one of the wealthiest civil attorneys in the Harris County area but may be in the spotlight now for different reasons. Buzzbee is reported to have taken a pre-trial deal that many local defense attorneys believe to be considered “special treatment.” Additionally, Buzzbee is facing heat for seeking to expunge the arrest off his record immediately after completion of his pre-trial diversion program.

District Attorney Devon Anderson dismissed Buzzbee’s DWI case after stating he completed his pre-trial intervention program. The program serves as a type of probation which is typical for many first-time drunken driving cases. What’s strange about this is that the program is normally a year long, but Buzzbee only completed 8 months before his case was dismissed.

Another unusual aspect of this case is that Anderson himself signed the dismissal after Buzzbee completed the conditions of the program. Now, the District Attorney’s Office is asking for a copy of the pretrial diversion contract, which lists all the conditions Buzzbee was required to complete. These are generally public record, but Buzzbee’s lawyers are refusing to release the documents. Buzzbee’s legal representation states they will seek an order from the Texas Attorney General’s Office to uphold the legal contract.

These inconsistencies have caused local defense lawyers to speak up about the matter. Tyler Flood who is a partner with Flood Lewis & Associates, Inc., states “Our target is not Tony Buzzbee… Our problem is the appearance of impropriety between the District Attorney and the judge.”
