Knowledgeable and Patient
I was on the receiving end of false reports which led to charges against me. It took 3 years until the charges were dropped, but Ken stuck with it, patiently answering my questions and holding power to account along the way. The adversarial system isn't designed to be easy, but even by those standards, it was a slog. But working with Ken was a large part of making the process tolerable as we eventually got to the correct result. Thanks, Ken!

Powerhouse Attorney with Proven Results - The Go-to Law Enforcement Attorney in Texas
I was indicted for multiple felonious charges stemming from an on-duty shooting while employed as a police officer. Ken Ervin & Doug O'Connell fought aggressively to show the case had no grounds for prosecution. The case was ultimately dismissed and the charges expunged. Their cumulative track record of winning jury trials, specifically for law enforcement made a huge difference. I'll forever be thankful for their relentless defense and outstanding communication along the way. Thank you!

Successful in dodging a difficult and complicated ordeal
Ken was efficient, accessible, and most importantly effective at getting us out of a legal snake pit that almost led to a two-year DL suspension. I highly recommend this gentleman.

Endorse Kenneth
Criminal defense Attorney | May 13
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I've been fortunate to collaborate with Ken on several cases. He's smart, strategic and understands the long game. Every time I work with Ken I learn something new. Ken and I tried a difficult 2 week jury trial where we represented co-defendants. Our clients were acquitted of 11 criminal charges by the Jury."
Criminal defense Attorney | May 08
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"For over the last decade I have had the pleasure to advocate on the opposite side of the courtroom from Ken in his prior work as a misdemeanor and felony prosecutor and I have always found him to be a worthy adversary who is both knowledgeable in the law and very well prepared for every case that he tries. He masters his grasp of the facts and has an extremely effective delivery in the courtroom. I strongly endorse this lawyer."
Criminal defense Attorney | Apr 19
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Ken is an extremely talented attorney. Due to his success as a former felony prosecutor, he is well known and liked in the community and maintains a reputation for fighting passionately for each of his clients. Without hesitation, I would recommend Ken's services to anyone looking for help with a criminal law matter."
