I have been defending clients for so long that the courtroom is second nature to me; its my workshop. Growing up in a family of ministers, I learned early on that the most rewarding work involves helping people. My desire to help "citizens accused" combined with a naturally competitive attitude have made me well-fitted to serve as your criminal defense attorney. I began to advocate for Texans in law school and have been steadfastly challenging the prosecution, whether state or federal, ever since.

In 1991, I became board certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, an honor that only 5% of all practicing lawyers have accomplished. I have handled an abundance of high-profile cases and have had the privilege of representing people from all walks of life, from all financial classes; the powerful and the weak. These people all have one thing in common when charged with a crime; they are powerless without a great defender standing between them and their accusers.

Bold Strategies Constructed for the People of Houston

I know the struggles and pain that can come with being charged with a crime. I have been diligently serving the people of Houston, and Harris, Galveston, Montgomery, and Brazoria Counties for decades.

Over the years, I have successfully handled a plethora of criminal cases that, at first blush, may have seemed impossible to navigate. But experience teaches that all cases can be navigated if properly guided and handled. Through diligence and accountability, I can work to guide you to a better result and future. Do not give up. Let's face these charges together.

I am not intimidated by bad facts. In fact, I enjoy challenging the officers, investigators, witnesses, statements and forensics in every case. But all cases start with the basics. So oftentimes, the police will want to speak with you before filing charges. If you have been arrested, keep calm and quiet. Invoke your Fifth Amendment "right to silence" and call me.
