About Marc

Learn Marc’s areas of practice.

It is my mission to serve you with first-class customer attention by zealously advocating on your behalf. This means having an understanding of the client's position and the empathy for why they are seeking representation.

Throughout my career as a prosecutor, I've tried cases to a jury from a traffic violation to a capital murder and many crimes in between. I proudly represented the community of Austin in the prosecution of the SXSW capital murder trial and the Tarrytown Murder. It is now time to use my trial and litigation experience to serve you and other citizens in the best possible way.
I was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas. I graduated Lubbock Christian University with a Bachelor's in Business Administration. From there I attended Texas Tech University where I graduated with my Law degree and a Master's in Business Administration.
I began my legal career in San Antonio representing citizens accused of crimes as well as business owners in civil manners. Following that, I served as Assistant District Attorney of Lubbock County for nearly four years. For the past 8 years, I served as Assistant District Attorney for Travis County. Since then, I started my own practice in early 2018 serving the people of the Greater Austin Area.

Title IX Expert with Discernment
I was wrongfully accused of a Title IX infraction. Marc is an exceptional listener and possesses the innate ability to ascertain facts from friction. After discussing my situation, Marc walked me through the Title IX process and explained how we should address the issue. Marc assisted in drafting a response letter to the adjudicate and coached me leading up to the interview. In the end, the accusation was not a Title IX issue, and flaws and false accusations in the claimant's testimony surfaced in which the case was ruled in my favor. I would not have known how to respond and properly defend myself without Marc’s assistance. Finally, Marc was always responsive and his fee for service was reasonable. The value of legal service with winning results is exceptional. Thank you, Marc.

F1 Charges entirely dismissed! Marc is incredible!!!!
Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Marc; but I will give my best attempt for anyone going through challenging and distressful legal matters to completely give him your trust!!! I truly did not believe my case would result in being COMPLETELY DISMISSED, and somehow Marc was able to get it done!!!!! Filtering through my options of attorneys, Marc gave me the best offer of anyone and had my interest even more when he told me he was previously a prosecutor for several years. I just followed everything Marc guided me to do. He constantly walked me through everything every time we met. The justice system is certainly intimidating, and he made the experience simple from the beginning. He explained what was happening, every outcome and exactly how they came to be, what things to expect, what things to prepare for and how to prepare for them. Facing a number of F1 charges, getting caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, I was anticipating that I'd have to do probation in the VERY least. Getting my case dismissed entirely still seems unfathomably unbelievable to me, and I am infinitely grateful for everything Marc was able to do for me. The weight of relief I feel is inconceivable! He is incredible at what he does, and I cannot recommend him enough!!!!! I will always recommend him to anyone for as long as he is in the business!

Absolutely Incredible
I hired Marc Chavez for a Title XI case I was named a Respondent for. To put it briefly, he was incredible. He was present at all of my interviews with investigators and provided me with useful legal counsel throughout the entire process. Marc without a doubt is in a class of his own. On the day of our hearing, the Complainant tried pulling a fast one on us by having a surprise witness show up to testify against me. Marc handled the situation amazingly. He managed to stay calm and continue to present our case in a clear and concise manner. If you find yourself being falsely accused of violating Title XI policies at your university, Marc Chavez will be key to your exoneration. I cannot recommend him enough.

The best lawyer!
Marc Chavez represented me back in 2019 for a DWI case. He was able to get my DWI to a deferred obstruction of highway with a 24 month probation period. A year and a half later he was able to get my early termination granted with Travis County. A year and a half later he was able to get my early termination granted with Travis County. He’s very honest, truthful, and knows what’s best for you and his case. He got me the deal of the century and I can’t thank him enough. Hire him immediately!
