Tipping the Scales In Your Favor

All of Our Lawyers Are Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and the National Board of Trial Advocacy

If you are facing the prospect of being accused of a crime, you could face the most stressful and challenging battle of your life.  The government at every level is a relentless opponent, and when you find yourself coming under scrutiny from local, state, federal or military prosecutors, you only have one choice in terms of how to react.

You need to fight back aggressively by building a strong defense, and this is your Constitutional right.  Simply sitting and hoping that the problem will solve itself is exactly the opposite of what you should do. 

We firmly believe in the jury system.  In order for the system to work, both sides must work hard and advocate on their client’s behalf.  You need an experienced and zealous advocate to investigate, prepare, and present your case.  Our lawyers will do everything within the bounds of the law and ethics to ensure that you receive the due process you deserve.
