While it may be a bit more expensive to hire a Dallas-area lawyer, rather than a Harris County attorney, to represent you in Houston, the plain fact is that if you plan to dispute the charge in any meaningful way (meaning, if you want to go to trial or challenge the admissibility of the evidence, as examples) the only way to fight the case is to work "early and often" with your lawyer so he/she can fully get to know you and the facts and circumstances in your case.
I advise seriously considering hiring a Dallas-area lawyer so you can spend the time required to make an intelligent and wise decision on how to proceed in your case.
