    About Me

    I am a Board Certified Criminal Lawyer with over 19 years experience in winning trials and I am focused on defending those accused of crimes and in matters of trial. I have represented numerous people especially those holding professional licenses such as pilots, physicians and lawyers. As a former prosecutor, I have been on both sides of the table and know what it takes to negotiate with the government.


    I frequently teach at legal seminars due to my vast experience in trying cases at all levels of State and Federal Courts.


    Call me when a plea is not an option.


    I hold a black belt in the Japanese martial art of Aikido. I bring that same intensity and focus to bear in the courtroom which has led to great success in defending my clients. I thoroughly beleive in using the latest technology and experts to assist me in trying cases and make a point of leaving no stone unturned in defending my clients as aggressively as possible. I am a former assistant distirct attorney and  was responsible for training new assistant district attorneys how to prepare and try thier cases while Chief of the Misdemeanor section. I have been defending accused citizens for the past 19 years and at last count have defended almost one thousand accused citizens.


    I am frequently in trial and travel all over the state of Texas trying cases and representing those people finding themselves accused of any level of crime.

    • Justin James McShane

      I first met Attorney Case several years ago at a national seminar in Maryland where we were both first learning the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. It struck me how dedicated he must be to come from Texas all the way up to Maryland just to learn. For me it was only an hour car ride, but for him it was more travel. Then as I got to know Attorney Case, I discovered that that this dedication a base positive characteristic in him. His eagerness to learn and to win is not easily matched. He was generous in sharing his approaches towards tackling and winning those most difficult cases that we are called upon to defend. There have been many a time where I have sought and received his counsel. He is a great attorney. As a potential new client, you would do well in hiring him.
