Excellent Attorney
Rob was very knowledgeable about the issue I brought before him. He always answered his phone or would get back with me. He did not leave me hanging. He was upfront with the costs. It was a pleasure working with him.

Referral for a reason
He’s professional and knows his stuff. He specializes in what I needed help with. He was easy to work with and overall very nice man. He even cut me a break on my last payment because I had been paying every month on time. Also referred me to the austin ut pro bono group that helped me get one of my arrests expunged. Thank you!

Professional and works with you.
Rob was hired to help me with my arrest for DUI. My friend knew Rob and he immediately was able to help me with bail. Rob worked with me and explained things very clear what steps he would be taking, what he would do, and what I should do when it came time for court. Rob was amazing. He always pushed for things to move forward and not let me hang in the wind. He was able to have the arrest diminished to obstruction, my probation severely reduced and for me to move on and not let this impede my life. I have recommended Rob to everyone I know if I hear they have had any trouble.

DWI First Offence Reduced
Rob walked me through the process because this was my first time to ever be arrested or in trouble for anything. Handled all the details and just let me know when to be where. He would communicate and keep me updated on each step of the process and was patient with me. The resolution ended with deferred adjudication and a charge for "Obstruction of a Roadway". Not having the DWI charge has saved my career and I couldn't be more grateful.
