Attorney Profile


Why Am I a Criminal Defense Attorney Defending People Accused of Breaking the Law?

People arrested by the police come from all walks of life. They are young and they are old. They may be advantaged or disadvantaged. As a criminal defense attorney I’ve helped teachers, doctors, students, police officers, soldiers, immigrants, professionals, and the average working man and woman, not just the hardened criminal. I represent good people, people who really need my help – people who may have simply made a mistake. Getting arrested is a complex problem and helping people navigate those frightening and dangerous waters has been rewarding to me. I’m also good at it. It’s the reason I have focused exclusively on being a criminal defense attorney.



What Makes Me Uniquely Qualified to Defend You?

I’ve concentrated on criminal law for over 27 years and I am a Board Certified expert in the field. I’ve been tested by fire in every manner possible, trying the most complicated criminal cases imaginable. For over 22 years I’ve represented more than 5000 clients since starting private practice in 1994. My AVVO rating is 10 (Superb) and I was selected to the Texas Super Lawyers (Thomson-Reuters Service) in 2011 and 2012. I have extensive trial experience and I’m a member of the National College of DUI Defense. I also know how prosecutors think having worked for the district attorney early in my career. Equally important is my appeal experience. My unique combination of legal and scientific expertise gives me a special advantage when advising you on the best course of action when you’re confronted with criminal charges.
