Top West Lake Hills Criminal Defense Lawyer dedicated to protecting your rights.

Being charged with a crime is a scary experience. It can leave you with a lot of questions and uncertainty about your future.

Whether you have received a traffic ticket or have been charged with a DWI or a more serious offense, it’s important to understand your charges and options for defending yourself. By hiring an attorney immediately after your citation or arrest, you may be able to limit the damage caused by a conviction—or even avoid a conviction altogether.

When you’ve been charged with a crime, you want an experienced defense lawyer to assist you.

I understand how confusing and intimidating the legal process can be when you’ve been charged with a crime. That’s why I work with you every step of the way to provide the guidance you need to make the best defense decisions possible. I have successfully represented countless clients facing serious criminal offenses, often helping them avoid unnecessary penalties or a conviction.

I have spent my entire legal career in the trenches litigating difficult criminal cases throughout Texas and California. I have handled every type of case from simple traffic tickets to DWI to sexual assault to both non-capital and capital murder. I spent a total of four years with both the Ventura County, California District Attorney's Office and Orange County, California District Attorney's Office. I have tried more than 100 criminal cases as both a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney, so I fully understand how to successfully try, review, and win cases from both sides of the aisle. My experience as a prosecutor often times proves invaluable in negotiation. I understand the ins and outs of working in a large prosecutor's office along with the political realities that assistant district attorney's face in court. Moreover, while working as a prosecutor, I trained law enforcement officers throughout Southern California on how to investigate crimes, write credible intelligible reports, and testify in court.

I have represented dozens of police officers and fire fighters. I saved many of these police officers and fire fighter's jobs through my zealous representation. Moreover, as a prior member of the United States Army, I believe in protecting the rights those currently serving this country and veterans. Since leaving the armed services, I have represented hundreds of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines in both military and civilian criminal proceedings. Finally, I have handled numerous high profile cases in Texas, including Bexar County, Bell County, Hays County, Johnson County, Travis County, Taylor County, and Lubbock County. These cases were highly publicized and range from capital murder, to sexual contact with an inmate, to aggravated sexual assault of a child, and intoxication manslaughter.

You will be hard pressed to find an attorney more knowledgeable in the defense of cases involving alcohol and driving and cases involving the possession, distribution, and sales of narcotics.

As a proud graduate of the University of Texas at Austin's School of Law, one of the nation's best law schools, and as a published author, I also understands how to deal with the most complex of legal issues. I am licensed to practice in every state court in Texas and California. I am also licensed in the United States District Court, Central District of California, the United States District Court, Western District of Texas, the United States District Court, Eastern District of Texas, the United States District Court Southern District of Texas, and the United States District Court Northern District of Texas.

In short, I have handled every type of criminal matter, and I have seen the process from every phase including complaint review, filing, pre-trial, trial, and appeal.

I have been practicing law since the year 2000.  I have nearly 20 years of experience in the criminal courts.
