About me

I defend people accused of domestic assault in Austin, Texas.  My clients are the type of people who plan for their futures and generally make good choices in life. Being accused of a crime is one of the most stressful situations that many of my clients have ever faced.  My clients also understand that a conviction on their criminal records will do permanent damage to their reputations and their careers.


I do not represent common criminals.  My clients are good people that cannot afford to NOT to be represented by an exceptional attorney that focuses on defending people accused of domestic assault in Travis County.  Protecting my clients from a system that treats all defendants like common criminals is my foremost concern.
