Greetings to All:
I am T.W. Davidson, a criminal defense and constitutional law attorney in Tyler, TX. I've been practicing law in TX since 2000, and in Wisconsin before that, from 1996-98. I've been a lawyer about 25 years now.
I am a trial lawyer and appellate attorney in both state and federal criminal cases. I have handled everything from misdemeanor theft cases up to capital murder trials. Perhaps my most significant case was State v. Patrick Kelly, part of the Mineola Swingers Club Cases. My client, who was wrongfully and illegally convicted after a vicious long difficult trial, was ultimately released from prison as a free man, along with multiple other MSC defendants. A major motion picture was made about his case and the other MSC cases. Justice ultimately prevailed for my client in a battle and war that took three years to win. I never gave up on my client. He never gave up on me.
In October of 2021 I took a murder case to trial--State v. Keiuna Paul--in Cherokee County. My client received NOT GUILTY verdicts from the jury.
Earlier in 2021, I took two criminal trespass cases to trial--State v. Jett Worl and State v. Brandon Neal--and received NOT GUILTY verdicts from the jury in those cases.
In the fall of 2021, I did an appeal of an unconstitutitionally high (as in outrageous) bond set by a district judge in Cherokee County. The appellate court reversed--meaning, my client won--the district judge in a scathing opinion in Irving Williams v. State, 12th Court of Appeals, Tyler, TX.
I represented defendants in several misdemeanor cases--a DWI case, a marijuana case, another drug case--in Smith County which were dismissed in 2021, along with a significant felony case that was dismissed, all without trial. I have obtained very favorable (to my clients) plea agreements in other cases in Smith County and surrounding counties. I practice primarily in Smith County, Cherokee County, Anderson County, Rusk County, Gregg County and other counties within 60-70 miles of Tyler.
I am a fighter. I research the law, investigate the facts, and will take a case to trial if that is the right thing to do, or when my client or clients directs me to do so. I am also skilled, however, at obtaining favorable (to the client) plea agreement resolutions in cases where the client or clients do not wish to go to trial, but rather seek a non-trial outcome which will keep them from getting a conviction, or will keep them out of jail, or will, in difficult cases, get them an outcome to the case (or cases) which the client or clients are happy with.
Prosecutors fear and respect defense attorneys who will fight and win at trial and/or on appeal. This also results in far better outcomes for clients in cases which do not go to trial.
Before I became an attorney, I was an officer and aviator in the U.S. Marine Corps, primarily flying fighter-reconnaissance jets, the RF-4 Phantom II. I have a daughter who is grown up, on her own, and happily married. I have a separate life as a musician, composer and writer.
The Constitution of the United States--fighting for it, defending it, protecting it, ensuring that it protects my clients--is everything to me. It is why I am a defense and constitutional law attorney. I will defend it and protect it to my last breath.
Have a criminal case pending against you or someone you love? Let me fight for you. Let me fight for them.
It is what I do.
