I am a Warrior, an Advocate, a Knight in Shining Armour to my clients. I have the scars of battle to prove it, the humility gained through combat to never take the opposition for granted and to always be prepared. We who defend the Citizen Accused must never forget that we hold our client's lives and fortunes, their very future, in our hands. My Sword of Advocacy was honed from the time I began High School Interscholastic Debate Competitions in 1963 and continued through Law School Moot Court Competitions. For almost ten years I tried cases and trained young prosecutors. Now, I put that experience to work for my clients.Through my years with the Harris County (Houston) District Attorney's Office in two administrations from 1975 to 1985, I coined the phrase "Trial by Ambush" where the worst cases (from the D.A.'s standpoint) roll downhill to suddenly confront the Number Three Prosecutor who "needs the experience". The Haggard Law Firm has fought against the government for the rights of Free Men and Women since 1991. I have learned through experience the meaning of the words of Plato: "Justice means minding one's own busniness and not meddling with other men's concerns."
