I focus on vigorously defending people accused of misdemeanor and felony offenses. I served as a Tarrant County Prosecutor prior to opening my own criminal defense practice in 2000. I understand the stress and anxiety my clients are feeling and believe it is my purpose as a criminal attorney to work hard and diligently to protect my clients rights and future.
As a Christian and a Criminal Defense Attorney it is not uncommon for people to ask, "how are those compatible? Don't you just get people off?" I don't condone sin or bad behavior, but I'm also not free from it. There are several reasons I have such an incredible passion for my work. First, we live in a country that requires the government to prove you are guilty beyond all reasonable doubt before you are convicted of a crime. Until you are put in a position to defend your name and your future those words won’t have much meaning. But to me, and the people who trust me to protect them, it means that a good defense with the protections and rights of the Constitution is the only thing standing between government and the result the government wants. We don't live in a country where someone says you committed a crime, and now you have to prove your innocence.
Life is hard enough without having a criminal record follow you around. I cannot promise a dismissal, but I can promise I will work as hard as possible to put you in a position to protect your future. Seeing a young person get a second chance after a mistake and capitalize on that second chance is well worth fighting for.
Now, forty five years old, I have spent the majority of my life in the Metroplex. I grew up in North Richland Hills and graduated from Richland High School in 1986.

Growing up I attended North Richland Hills Baptist Church in North Richland Hills. Now my family and I attend Christ Chapel in Arlington. I am happily married and have two children. All three are incredible gifts from God. We spend our time as a family between our home in Arlington and a small ranch in Graham, Texas. We enjoy golfing, fishing, hunting and traveling.
