About Me

Welcome to the Law Office of Roberto Ambrosino, PLLC. I pride myself on being an advocate for the accused. Having a blue collar background, I can emphasize with those in need and may not be able to afford it—which is why I work with clients to make legal representation a reality. The son of an Italian immigrant father and mother who survived cancer, I became a first generation college graduate. Growing up in the small coal-mining town of Uniontown, Pennsylvania, I learned to appreciate the merits of hard work and sacrifice.


Prior to opening my own practice, I was an associate for a prominent civil rights law firm. The case on which I worked the hardest involved faulty urinalysis drug tests administered by the Bexar County Probation Department and their contracted drug lab. Those cases made me aware of the gross amount of injustice within the criminal justice system and served as the force behind the opening of my own criminal defense firm later on in 2009.


While attending law school on a scholarship at Texas Tech University, I interned for the Innocence Project of Texas, reading letters from incarcerated citizens and analyzing their claims of wrongful imprisonment. I also served as a research assistant for a law professor. I conducted research for the article: "Throwing the Baby Out with the Bathwater: A Call to Reinstate the Public Housing Drug Elimination Program" (Vol. 18, No. 4), published in the American Bar Association Journal of Affordable Housing and Community Development Law. I also participated in the trial advocacy program, and acted as a student attorney for Legal Aid of Northwest Texas, advocating for citizens in court before I even graduated law school.


In college, I graduated Magna Cum Laude, or "with high honors," mostly while working full-time as a food server at local restaurants in additional to a full-time course load. This was also a time when I had my only brush with the law involving numerous traffic tickets I had received over the course of a few years. As a college student, I could not afford to pay the hefty tickets fines and had my driver's license suspended as a result; I learned the hard way how unforgiving the law can be.


Today, I have a thriving criminal defense practice, having handled over 1000 criminal cases in over 20 Texas counties. I make my home in Helotes with my wife Tracy, an aspiring educational psychologist, and children Dylan and Madeline. I like to attend San Antonio Spurs games, watch my Pittsburgh Steelers, and take my family to Sea World.
