I recently noticed that if someone "googled" my name, they would see prominently displayed, the AVVO rating fro of 6.9. Some attorneys might consider that rating to be complementary, but I consider it defamatory and misleading. It says that I lack institutional recognition, but this is completely false. I have been licensed for 29+ years, and have for years had an AV Rating from Martindale Hubbell. I have been mentioned in the Wall Street Journal and D Magazine for my expertise years ago. I have spoken and lectured for the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, the Dallas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, the Dallas Young Lawyers Association, and the Criminal Clinic at SMU. I have been mentioned in more than several Dallas Morning News articles throughout the years. What gives?
