Background and Experience
After attending college at Texas Christian University, I attended South Texas College of Law in Houston, Texas (US News and World Reports frequently ranks it as a top 10 school in the specialty of teaching trial advocacy skills). While in law school, I interned at the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, as well as at the First Court of Appeals in Houston, Texas. Once out of law school, I began my legal career at the District Attorney’s Office in Collin County. After approximately a year and a half, I moved to the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office in Fort Worth, Texas. In Tarrant County, I was a felony prosecutor and tried over 75 cases to a jury in both County and District Courts. I have also tried numerous cases to a judge, and presented hundreds of cases to the grand jury.
As a former prosecutor with the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office and the Collin County District Attorney’s Office, I have held the following positions:
- Felony Prosecutor (213th District Court in Tarrant County)
- Misdemeanor Prosecutor (CCC6, CCC1 in Tarrant County)
- Grand Jury Prosecutor (Tarrant County)
- Misdemeanor Court Chief Prosecutor (Collin County)
Who should you hire as your Fort Worth Criminal Defense Lawyer?
This is a very important decision that could alter the outcome of your case and your freedom. It is important to hire a Fort Worth criminal lawyer with substantial trial experience. Fort Worth Criminal Lawyers often build their reputation by their success as a trial attorney. During my tenure at the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office and the Collin County District Attorney’s Office, I had the opportunity to litigate a number of criminal jury trials for cases ranging from driving while intoxicated to attempted capital murder. In the area of DWI litigation, I have tried over fifty jury trials ranging from breath and blood test refusal cases to test cases and drug DWI cases. As a result, it is important that I have earned the respect of Judges, prosecutors and my peers.
As a former Fort Worth Prosecutor and current Fort Worth criminal lawyer, I specialize in criminal defense trial litigation. My number one priority is to stand up for your rights. I believe that communication between the attorney and client is essential and I strive to provide you with the best lines of communication.
