Louis Martinez practices exclusively in the area of Criminal Law and specializes in DWI Defense. A 2002 graduate of the University of Texas Law School, he interned with United States District Court Magistrate John W. Primomo and was a law clerk at the Houston office of Beirne, Maynard &. Parsons, LLP, one of this State's preeminent litigation firms.
Louis began trying criminal jury trials almost immediately after opening his office and won his first nine DWI trials in a row and thirteen of his first fifteen. By the age of 28, he was appointed by the San Antonio City Council as an Associate Municipal Judge, presiding over traffic cases and trials. In 2009, Mr. Martinez was selected by the Felony Judges of Bexar County to represent defendants in Capital Murder cases. The following year he became the youngest attorney in a generation to defend a Death Penalty case in Bexar County, convincing a jury to deny the District Attorney's request for a death sentence. Mr. Martinez has continued to maintain an active practice with regard to murder, manslaughter, and other homicide cases, and was the first attorney in Bexar County to defend a Felony DWI Murder to a jury.
Since joining Robert Price and forming Price & Martinez, Louis' practice has focused primarily on DWI Defense, but he is also representing clients charged with Drug Possession (State and Federal), Intoxication Assault, Intoxication Manslaughter, Aggravated Robbery, Sexual Offenses, Murder, and numerous Misdemeanor Offenses.
