About me

- I have completed training by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to administer standardized field sobriety tests.

- I am a member in good standing with the State Bar of Texas.

- I am a member of the Austin Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association.

- I am a member of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association.

- I am a member of The National DWI College

- I have a Juris Doctor degree.

- I have attended the Robert F. Borkenstein Course on Alcohol and Highway Safety, Testing, Research and Legislation taught at the Indiana University. This is the same course the prosecutor?s expert attended. As a result of this training, Ken is able to better contest any Intoxilyzer evidence that the prosecutor attempts to introduce.

- I have completed training under the Department of Transportation Guidelines as an Intoxilyzer 5000 Operator and Technician. This training gives him the knowledge to know the strengths and weaknesses of this particular Intoxilyzer. Further, Ken can use this knowledge to better defend you.

- I own my own Intoxilyzer 5000s. If you provided a breath test at the jail this is the same model Intoxilyzer that the police used.

- I spend time each month researching the latest cases, legal treatises, scientific literature, and articles on the subject of drunk driving defense allowing him to be on the cutting edge of DWI defense at all times.

- DUI Help Member

- I am doggedly independent, and believe in challenging everything for my clients’ defense to be successful.

- As a matter of course, I am ready to fight your case, when appropriate by bombarding the County Attorney with extensive pre-trial motions, demonstrative evidence, photographs, witness testimony, videos, defense experts, essential cross-examination of the prosecution’s witnesses, and, of course, your testimony.

- I focus on criminal cases with the emphasis of his practice devoted to DWI cases. I focus on cases in Williamson, Travis and Hays Counties.

    Ken was my first employer when I began my practice, and I learned most of what I know about zealous DWI defense from the practices implemented at his top-notch firm. He has truly honed his expertise in the area of DWI defense and built a team of some of the finest attorneys in the area. I'm grateful for the experience I gained working for him.
