Yes and no.Yes because I will never lose the understanding and appreciation of what criminal charges mean to my clients. No, because I know that when the case is in my hands no one will outwork me. This level of dedication and case preparation is where I get my comfort amidst the anxiety.
Hard cases. As a criminal defense attorney, I live in a world of being the underdog. I’ve learned to thrive in this arena. When it’s time for the courtroom, I want a tough, knock-down, drag-out fight, type of case. Those are the cases I enjoy the most.
We handle state cases all throughout the Dallas / Forth-Worth metroplex.But we are able to handle cases outside this area as well. As far as federal cases, we focus predominantly in the northern and eastern districts of Texas. We can defend a federal criminal case anywhere in the United States, and have recently handled federal cases in Washington D.C. and Manhattan, N.Y.
Two words – Not Guilty. No better feeling in my world than hearing the jury read “Not Guilty” on the verdict form.

My wife and I wake up at 4:30 a.m. where we hit the gym until 6 am. Coffee and news until 7. Take my kids to school and then work for the day. Most mornings I am in court, negotiating with prosecutors and talking with Judges. I’m in the office most afternoons where I spend time meeting with clients and preparing a defense in their case. Dinner. Rest. Repeat. I love it!
On a day-to-day basis, I love helping people.Every day I achieve a result that changes someone’s life for the better. That feeling is addicting. From a professional perspective, my favorite thing about being an attorney is trial – there is no better feeling than an intense cross-examination or a winning closing argument.
The most frustrating part about my job is dealing with prosecutors who refuse to believe in second chances or want to punish my client for an, oftentimes, singular mistake.I have found that persistence and relentlessness often carry the day on these cases.
I love spending time with my wife and two kids. As a family, we love being together outside making memories in the sun and, sometimes in Texas, in the snow. Laughter is the fuel that runs our house.
Town Hearth for the atmosphere. Bugatti’s for the food and friendship. Chuy’s for the chips and salsa. Javier’s for the cigar bar.
