I've found that my favorite kinds of cases are those where people are in the most need of help because they are at a difficult time in their life. Maybe they are being accused of a crime and have the prosecutorial power of the entire state of Texas or the federal government leveled against them, or maybe they have had Child Protective Services remove their child and are at risk of permanently losing their parental rights, or maybe they are watching their world fall apart because of divorce or a custody dispute. It is at those times, when a client is feeling most vulnerable and alone, that I want to stand beside them and help in any way that I can.

While my primary areas of concentration are criminal defense and family law, I have handled many different kinds of cases including estate planning, personal injury, licensing, wills, probate, and business law. Most of my trial experience has been in state and federal criminal defense, CPS, and family law (divorce, custody, visitation, etc.). When dealing with clients, I like to try and work with them so that we can come up with a plan to address their problems. I try to accommodate clients and am willing to meet with them after-hours or on the weekend. While I prefer to meet in my office, I can and have met clients all over the place when an office visit wasn't convenient. I take my clients' cases very seriously and have a deep desire to help them achieve their legal goals and protect their rights, property and interests. When my clients come to me feeling overwhelmed or experiencing a sense of fear or uncertainty, I try to help them so that they leave with a sense of hope, calm, acceptance, and understanding. For me, the outcome of their case is emotionally import to me, regardless of the financial terms associated with my defense of the case.
