About me

Robert Icenhauer-Ramirez is an experienced and effective advocate for his clients.  His criminal defense practice has included the defense of persons charged with some of the most highly publicized crimes in Travis County history, including the notorious Yogurt Shop Murder case, where he was able to secure the release of his client after police had charged him with four Capital Murder charges.  His work has resulted in jury acquittals in other high profile murder cases.  He also represents people charged in less high profile cases but who seek the same high standard of representation that he is able to give to those charged with the most serious of crimes.
