When you find out you are under investigation, or even worse find yourself being arrested, for a criminal offense, your life changes. The “presumption of innocence” seems to go out the window. You find investigators, judges, and prosecutors treat you like your guilty of the offense after hearing just one side of the story.

We’ve dedicated ourselves to the defense of individuals accused of serious crimes. We’ve also seen the other side. All the partners at our firm started off as Tarrant County prosecutors. Today as Tarrant County criminal defense lawyers, we have more experience than almost any prosecutor in the area. The Partners at the firm include Board Certified Criminal Defense Specialists – the highest designation a criminal defense attorney can reach. We handle cases from DWIs all the way through capital murder. All of the Partners at the firm have been to jury trial over 100 times individually, and over 550 times collectively. An enormous number by any measure.

We’ve had successful results in charges ranging from misdemeanors all the way through murder.
