When We Say We Have A Client-Centered Approach To Criminal Defense, We Mean It

Clients of the firm benefit from the attorneys' strong emphasis on confidentiality. You will not see clients identified in marketing materials as confidentiality means just that. We tailor our approach to each unique individual and the circumstances behind each criminal matter. Every case is different and every case is important. We are committed to our clients' well-being both in court and in the practical life consequences of criminal charges. For example, we work to protect people's professional licenses as needed. We want our clients to avoid criminal records or get records sealed or expunged. We are not satisfied unless we have given our best efforts to obtaining the most favorable outcomes achievable in each case.

When you request a consultation with our firm, the Texas criminal law attorney you meet will be the one who represents you in court. We do not delegate our own cases to associates. Learn about our individual backgrounds here:
