Being charged or investigated for a crime- even a minor one- can seriously affect your career, your family, your future, your life.

The first step you need to take if you have been charged is to hire a solid defense lawyer to help you through the overwhelming process of handling your case, protecting your rights, and keeping your record clear.

As a criminal defense attorney, I have been practicing criminal defense law in the DFW area for over 20 years. I have extensive experience in handling all types of felony and misdemeanor charges. From Assault, Burglary, and Robbery cases, to Homicide, Child Abuse, CPS, DWI and Drug charges, I have the knowledge and experience you need to handle your unique situation.

Additionally, I offer legal representation in Juvenile Law as well as expunctions and sealing of records.

That is why you need someone whose sole purpose if to aggressively and professionally fight to protect you.

Crime Charges

Two of the MOST COMMON charges in our area are DWI and Drug Possession Charges.


Because of Texas’ strong stance on drunk driving, police officers often have the mentality of “better to be safe than sorry” if they smell alcohol on a driver. As a result, many drivers are issued DWI’s who are not actually intoxicated.

Here is another example of where prompt attention is imperative. In Texas, you only have 15 days to request a hearing with the Texas Department of Public Safety to challenge the suspension of your license. As a member of the National College of DUI Defense, I am very informed on the latest technology and ever-changing rules regarding DWI defense.

I can assure you that my assistance will provide you with the best possible outcome. Call now if you have been arrested for DWI.

**Drug Possession**

With more and more states legalizing marijuana and CBD, drug possession charges may seem like “no big deal”. However, a conviction for any drug crime is a big deal, one that can potentially haunt you for the rest of your life.

Call me today to help you ensure that your charge does not follow you into your future.
