About me

Dax I. Garvin has been a licensed Texas attorney since 2002, which is
the year that he first moved to Travis County, Texas.  Dax focuses not
only on knowing the current Texas law, but he dedicates himself to
understanding each client's personal situation because he understands
that it is not only the facts that are important but the background
circumstances of each case and every person involved that affect the
outcome of a client's matter.


Mr. Garvin served as a peace officer in central Texas,
wearing a uniform, patrolling his district, and enforcing the law for
over two and a half years.  During this time, Dax learned how many
officers think and why they respond to situations the way that they
do.  This knowledge and experience sets Dax apart from many other
lawyers, that have never worked in law enforcement.  Mr. Garvin also
worked for clients whose insurance companies were involved and defended
them in matters ranging from minor automobile collisions to cases that
involved the death of another person, so he knows and appreciates the
procedures and complexities of civil litigation.  Mr. Garvin began his
legal career in 2002 with the Travis County Attorney's Office, where he
served as a misdemeanor prosecutor, interacting with law enforcement
officers, crime victims, defense attorneys, and countless other parties
that had an interest in the outcome of the case he was working on at
that time.  It was in this role that Dax learned to recognize the very
essence of a State's case, understanding not only the elements that the
State must prove to convict but the other forces that explain why a
case is filed, prosecuted, and tried.
