Being accused of committing a crime is a serious matter and one that should not be taken lightly.

I have a proven track record in Trial before juries.

Trial Attorney Dedicated to Fighting Your Charges

As a trial attorney, my preparation is based on looking toward the jury trial. When I first begin evaluating a case, I focus on the situation from the perspective of the jury, which allows me to determine whether I should fight the case, or discuss a possible plea bargain. Should you choose to hire me to handle your case, you can be sure that we will work together, driving the investigation of your case toward finding all the evidence necessary to give you an improved chance at having a successful trial.

Whether your case is resolved by plea bargain or by trial, the decision must be yours. When you are presented with all of the information and advised of all options, you can make an informed decision.

My goal is to:

  • Find all available evidence
  • Inform you of all your options
  • Provide the best advice I can
  • Help you proceed with whatever you decide to do

Unique Challenges for Service Members

For members of the military, an understanding of how a civilian criminal case can impact your career is another critical part of the evaluation of your case. As a former active duty and now Reserve Army JAG, I keep abreast of all changes to regulations, law, and policy throughout the Department of Defense (DoD) and all branches of service, including the QMP process and the latest DoD guidelines regarding military criminal offenses, such as stricter consequences for first-time offenders.

Your plea bargain will now be looked at and taken into consideration in whether you will be allowed to continue in your military career. I fully understand how new programs and processes can impact your career. For more information about how my hard-hitting legal experience and military background can help you overcome your Texas state crime charges, please do not hesitate to contact me at (915) 546-2696.

I would be happy to answer your questions and address your concerns during a confidential case evaluation.
