It can be a frustrating, time-consuming and even frightening thing to try to find a lawyer when you’re faced with a criminal charge or when you or a family member have been injured. Your peace of mind, your financial security, and even your freedom can be on the line – and you need a lawyer who is experienced, knowledgeable and who you can trust to handle your situation.
When you’re faced with a criminal charge in Harris or Montgomery County, Houston or Conroe, – whether it’s murder, driving while intoxicated (DWI), possession of controlled substances or drugs, theft, fraud, assault, embezzlement, burglary, whether it’s a felony or a misdemeanor, whether it’s a federal or state case – the choice of a lawyer can be one of the most important decisions you will ever make and may make the difference between spending time in jail or prison or going free. It’s important that you choose a lawyer with experience, knowledge, and the attitude to fight for you.
Criminal defense, asset forfeiture defense, and civil personal injury cases all demand the same attributes from an effective lawyer: Experience. Knowledge. Attitude. Those are the important qualities you should seek in a lawyer who you can trust to fight for you and your family.

Attitude. Not every case goes to trial. But, every case must be treated as if it is going to trial if you hope to resolve it on the best terms possible. Every case, from the beginning to the end, requires the commitment to fight for the best possible result for the client at every stage of the proceeding. Our attorney’s trial experience qualifies him to push, at every stage of the proceeding, for the best interests of the client. Prosecutors and insurance company lawyers know that he is not afraid to take a case to trial, if that is what is required for the client to get the best possible outcome.
You may be surprised to learn that many lawyers never want to see the inside of a courtroom – however, the few who are “trial lawyers” live for the times they can represent their clients in a courtroom. Our Attorneys, for our own clients and when hired by other lawyers to be trial counsel for their clients, actively seeks cases that are likely to go to trial. That level of commitment, that attitude, is what helps make him so effective for clients facing serious challenges with the law.
The lawyer’s attitude must be that the client comes first, the client is entitled to the lawyer’s best efforts, and the client must be kept fully informed on every aspect of their case. Importantly, the lawyer can never give up fighting for the client’s rights and freedom. That’s our Attorneys commitment for every clients, every day.
