Excellent lawyer. Excellent man.

Great lawyer who fought hard to get me out of trouble. He is very knowledgable and fights his cases very agressively. He knows the law and knows how to fight for your rights.
— Justin, A Past Client

In an effort to effectively represent my clients to the best of my ability, I routinely attend seminars and training. Every year that I have been licensed, I have been a member of the Texas Bar College (requirements for membership)

Additionally, I have extensive training in the investigation and defense of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), Boating While Intoxicated (BWI), Driving Under the Influence (DUI), and other Intoxication related charges. I have received certificates in the operation of the Intoxilyzer 5000 and certificates in giving and instructing the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests.

Testimonials and Reviews of Past Clients

Here are some articles that I have written to assist others in their criminal defense matters: 

Since 2011, I have organized a reading of the Declaration of Independence to celebrate the Fourth of July on the courthouse steps in Conroe, Montgomery County, Texas.
