About Me

I believe in treating my clients as intelligent equals in a joint venture to solve their problems and improve their lives.  This means telling you what you need to know, not what I think you want to hear.  It also means explaining law and procedure to you without talking down to you.


I believe in providing more value to my clients than they expect or request.  This starts with being accessible and responsive to client needs.  It goes beyond diligent preparation and prompt delivery of services. It is the result of taking a real human interest in my clients.


I believe the best lawyers genuinely delight in solving their clients problems and in helping their clients achieve their goals.


I grew up in Houston and obtained my undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University, where I majored in political science.  I graduated with honors from the Valparaiso University School of Law in 1999.  While in law school, I was privileged to clerk at Harper & Rogers, P.C., a premier criminal defense firm in Northwest Indiana.  I settled in Austin after law school and worked for a small firm for two years before launching my own practice at the end of 2001.


I am board certified as a specialist in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.


Since 1999, I’ve maintained membership in the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and the Austin Criminal Defense Lawyers Association.  I am also a member of the Austin and Williamson County Bar Associations.


In addition to my law license, which allows me to practice in all state courts in Texas, I am also admitted to practice in the Federal Courts in the Western District of Texas, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court.

  • James Morris Balagia

    Bristol Myers worked for my firm when he began his legal career and I am so happy to endorse him today. Bristol is a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom. Bristol is big on detail and preparation and he can see through the thinly veiled lies that come from the witness stand in so many criminal cases. Bristol has made me proud of his accomplishments since he set out on his own and he has served his clients well. I recommend Bristol not only as a friend but because he represents our profession well. Bristol is a former DWI Dude warrior and I am glad to call him my friend. Hopefully we will work together on another case sooner than later.
