After becoming licensed, Mr. Evans worked as an assistant criminal district attorney with the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office and was literally thrown into the courtroom experience. As Mr. Evans recalls, “they hired me on a Wednesday and on that Thursday I was picking a Jury” which was one of many jury trials Mr. Evans participated in his career with the Tarrant County District Attorneys Office. During this time, Mr. Evans prosecuted such crimes as domestic violence, family violence, sex crimes against children, and other felony and misdemeanor crimes for nearly 5 years. During this time, Mr. Evans spent significant time working with children and protecting them against predators. In his tenure prosecuting sex crimes against children, Mr. Evans spent significant time working with children and preparing them for testimony. “I still have a drawer full of thank you cards”, Mr. Evans tells it. “There is nothing like the satisfaction that a child having gone through this kind of experience can look 12 people in the eye and know that someone finally believed them.” At the District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Evans was nicknamed “scrapper” for his scrappy litigation style.

After leaving the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Evans worked in commercial litigation with Hill Gilstrap, a private firm in Arlington, Texas where Mr. Evans worked in such areas as contracts and business litigation; wills and estates litigation as well as airplane crash litigation until moving to Austin and joining his father’s legislative practice who had retired from 19 years of service in the Texas Legislature. There, Mr. Evans and his father spent a great deal of time being involved in Texas Politics. However, after becoming a father 9 years ago Mr. Evans has dedicated his practice exclusively in the area of family law and becoming a specialist in this area of practice and serving Travis County, Williamson County, and surrounding counties.

During Mr. Evans’ 19 years of practice, he has obtained extensive court room experience and has over 100 jury trials to his credit, including 8 now in the area of family law.
