Board Certified Criminal Defense Attorney Serving Kerrville County and the Texas Hill Country

Defending Clients throughout Texas

I became certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization (TBLS) in January, 2015. TBLS’s website states: “Board Certification is a mark of excellence and a distinguishing accomplishment. Within the Texas legal community, Board Certification means an attorney has substantial, relevant experience in a select field of law, as well as demonstrated, and tested, special competence in that area of law. The designation sets them apart as being an attorney with the highest, public commitment to excellence in their area of the law.”

If you are facing criminal charges in the Texas Hill Country, San Antonio or Austin, whether at the state or federal level, your best defense lies in finding a competent attorney. You will want someone who has a proven track record in handling criminal cases and who has a reputation for an aggressive and committed approach. Your freedom and your future could depend on the quality of legal representation you obtain.

You may be confused and intimidated by the criminal justice system. You may be unaware of the implications of the charges against you or what your legal options may be in fighting them. Being accused of a crime, whether it is drunk driving, a domestic violence charge, a weapons charge, or something more serious, can be a frightening situation. Having a Texas attorney you can trust who will work vigorously on your behalf, address your concerns, answer your questions, and provide legal guidance throughout every stage of the legal process is a must. That is why I encourage you to contact me as Kerrville criminal defense lawyer with 40 years of experience in defending clients of all types of misdemeanors and felonies. I will ensure that your case is handled with skill and integrity and that you receive due process and justice.

Criminal Defense Cases

I handle all types of criminal cases, including DUI, DWI, drug charges, assault and battery, sexual assault, murder, theft crimes, weapons charges and probation violations. Depending on the facts of your case and the charges you have been accused of, you may be facing serious penalties, from jail or prison time, loss of your driver’s license, heavy fines and court costs, probation, community service, court-mandated alcohol or drug programs, anger management, or other counseling or education programs. If you are convicted, you will face the future with a permanent criminal record, which can negatively affect career and education opportunities, professional licenses, and more.

In the face of such serious consequences, you should not rely on an overworked, untried, or half-hearted lawyer. Call my office to speak with me about your case today.
