An Experienced, Dedicated Attorney Standing Up For You

If you are facing criminal charges, one thing is certain: You will have one chance to defend yourself, and you've got to make it count. Every citizen has a constitutional right to professional legal representation in criminal court. When choosing who will represent you, it's important to look for someone who cares about your long-term future as well as your immediate legal needs, and who will put in the time and energy to help you obtain the best outcome available in your case. As your attorney, I pay close attention to the details of your case, and I will work with you to craft a legal strategy tailored to your unique needs.

Don't Put Your Fate In The Hands Of An Overworked Public Defender

The right to legal counsel is such an important pillar in the modern criminal justice system that the state of Texas will provide a court-appointed attorney if you have no other options, but this should never be the first choice of anyone who can afford private counsel. Public defenders are honorable civil servants, but they are often given far too many clients and too little time or resources to mount a strong defense. On average, defendants see much better results when they hire competent private counsel.

Hire A Board-Certified Criminal Defense Lawyer

I have been certified as a criminal law specialist by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, a distinction reached by only 7 percent of attorneys in Texas. This additional training and certification give me an extra edge when working with judges and prosecutors in negotiating charges and sentencing in your case.

Serving Clients With Commitment, Loyalty, Honesty, Integrity And Passion For More Than 25 Years

When I take a case, I make a commitment to both my client and to myself that I will do everything in my power to minimize the impact of criminal charges on their life. As your legal advocate, I put a piece of myself into your case, and I care deeply about the outcome.
