About Me

A long time judge here in Harris County said you go to the DA's Office to learn how to practice criminal law.  That's what I did.  I tried over 70 jury trials while at the Harris County DA's office.  I tried the most serious cases including murder, aggravated robbery, and sexual assault of a child.  This taught me how to try a criminal case and I also got to see the State's play book.  Every day I use that experience to defend the accused citizen.  I take real pride in standing up to he giant criminal justice machine and I do my very best to keep my clients from getting chewed up by it.
