My 20+ years of legal experience, which includes six years spent as a prosecutor,
gives me a distinct edge over other Houston criminal defense and DWI attorneys.
Thanks to my successful handling of thousands of drug possession and DWI
cases, I have earned membership in the Harris County Criminal Lawyers
Association and the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer's Association. H
Texas Magazine honored me as one of Houston's Top Lawyers from 2008
to 2015; and Envy Magazine also chose me as its Favorite DWI Lawyer in
As a prosecutor, on any given day I was responsible for prosecuting approximately
350 misdemeanor cases and 150 felony cases. These cases ranged in seriousness
from first offense DWI to aggravated robbery and sexual assault. I have
also prosecuted complex cases such as tax evasion and employee theft.
Also as a prosecutor I worked with all levels of law enforcement from
university campus police to the county sheriff, the highway patrol, and
the FBI, DEA, and Secret Service. I learned how law enforcement is trained
and how police think when they investigate crimes.
During the course of these prosecutions I worked across to table from
hundreds of criminal defense lawyers of varying degrees of experience
and competency. Those criminal defense attorneys taught me what to say
and what not to say to a prosecutor. A good criminal defense attorney
must not only know the law, he must also be a skilled negotiator who understands
the District Attorney's Office.
