I have been representing people charged with crimes in state and federal court in Central Texas since graduating from the University of Texas School of Law in 1995. I am proud of the work I do to help my clients. I understand that no one plans to be charged with a crime, and that it can be an unpleasant and embarrassing situation for everyone involved. Anyone facing that type of challenge needs and deserves compassionate, intelligent representation by an experienced attorney.

I am one of the small minority of criminal defense lawyers in Austin who have been certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization as a specialist in criminal law. This means I have demonstrated substantial experience representing clients in court and have passed a rigorous test of my legal knowledge in the area of criminal law. I handle all types of criminal matters, from Driving While Intoxicated to allegations of sexual misconduct. I have been licensed to practice in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas since 1997 and have handled many cases in those courts, ranging from drug charges to complex white-collar cases. I also am happy to work with families whose children are charged in juvenile court.

I’m pleased to have been recognized by my peers as a Texas “Super Lawyer”. I am also honored to have been invited to teach other lawyers by giving presentations at legal education seminars.

If I can be of help to you or someone you care about in any criminal matter, please call my office or contact me by email. No honest lawyer can promise a result, but you have my commitment that I will work as long and as hard as it takes to find a fair solution to the problem.
