Carrying a Weapon in a Prohibited Place

Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer in Texas

When you have been charged with illegally carrying a weapon in a prohibited place in Houston, Texas the best lawyer for you is an attorney who practices in criminal law. I am an experienced Houston weapons offense lawyer with more than 20+ years of experience as a criminal defense attorney and prosecutor. Working on both sides of the court room, I know how a prosecutor thinks and what a defense lawyer should say and should not say in the defense of his client.
