I have been Board Certified as a specialist by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in the area of Juvenile Law since 2004. Currently, in Texas, I am one of only 38 such lawyers in private practice.
I grew up in Nashville and in 1987 moved to Texas to attend Baylor University where I studied Journalism, Latin American (Spanish) and Asian Studies (Japanese) at Baylor University. I graduated with honors in 1990. I then lived in Mexico City and traveled throughout Mexico prior to entering law school. In 1993, I graduated from South Texas College of Law. I have been married to my wife Araceli for 25 years. We have 2 children and worship in a Catholic church.
If you need a defense attorney to represent you, your child or a loved one, call me and let me know how I can help.

Jim is an excellent lawyer who deeply cares for his clients. He has even taken time out of his busy schedule to help other lawyers prepare their cases. He is the rare attorney who is well-versed in adult AND juvenile criminal law. He is honest, hardworking, and is relentless in fighting for his clients.
Mark Griffith, Criminal defense Attorney

I endorse this lawyer. He has passion for every client he represents and juries see that passion and he touches their hearts. He is incredible in front of a jury because he works with them as HIS jury and they become part of the defense team, you cannot ask more than that of a criminal defense attorney. Further, he is caring, prepared, and effective. I highly recommend for any criminal matter.
