Criminal Defense

If you are under investigation, or if you have been charged with a crime, you need to know your defense options and know that someone is on your side.

We bring a client-driven approach to criminal defense and we do not push our clients to take a ‘deal’ they do not want. We explain the facts, lay out options and then put you in the driver’s seat – with a high-powered engine of experienced criminal defense lawyers behind you.

We work hard to get the grand jury to decline to indict, to get a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor, to get the criminal charges dismissed – and when the chips are down, to get a not-guilty verdict at trial. Some of our greatest victories are never known because we discretely handled the problem behind the scenes and it did not haunt our clients for the rest of their lives.

Defense in Texas State, Federal and Juvenile Criminal Court

  • Assault Family Violence: Domestic assault, child abuse, stalking, harassment – we understand how criminal charges can come out of a family law problem, and how a charge or conviction can affect the outcome of a child custody or divorce case. Our firm handles both the family law and criminal consequences of a family abuse charge.
  • Driving While Intoxicated (DWI): A DWI is no small problem. It can have consequences you may not have considered which is why it is always worth it to fight a DWI if you can. Our firm has extensive experience defending people in misdemeanor and felony DWI cases, whether it is a first offense or a repeat DWI offense.
  • Theft: Misdemeanor shoplifting, auto theft, grand theft, embezzlement, and fraud. We defend people on theft charges in state, federal and juvenile court.
  • Drug Crimes: With drug offenses, the Texas DA will often find ways to multiply the charges, turning a simple drug possession into a bigger deal. In doing so they may over-reach. We do the hard work of investigating the facts in cases in juvenile, state and federal drug crimes cases involving drug possession, drug sales, drug manufacturing, smuggling, and trafficking.
  • Sex Crimes: If you have been charged with a sex crime — rape, prostitution, child pornography — the stigma can be overwhelming. We work to protect your reputation while ensuring that the court hears your side of the story.
  • Parole and Probation: Our firm handles cases few law firms do — parole representation, parole hearings, Coleman hearings, parole revocation hearings, and probation revocation cases. We work in all Texas prisons. Whether you face new criminal charges or violated the terms of your probation, we will defend you.
