  • Sminu Peter

    I have worked with Brook on multiple criminal cases and I can say that, without a doubt, she knows everything there is to know about defending serious criminal charges. She is the guru as far as I am concerned. What's more, Brook was always willing to answer whatever questions I had as a younger attorney and her willingness to help her peers in that way shows just how much character she has as a person and as an attorney. I am privileged to know her and highly recommend her as one of the most experienced and knowledgeable attorneys in the entire DFW metroplex.
