If you have been charged with a crime, you don’t have to submit to a fate determined by the state of Texas. You do, however, need a skilled, aggressive criminal defense lawyer in San Antonio or Austin and surrounding counties who is familiar with the complexities of Texas criminal law. I have a reputation in legal circles for fiercely defending my clients, standing up to the Texas judicial system, and boldly cross examining prosecution witnesses. I relentlessly study Texas criminal law and I regularly complete far more than the required minimum Continuing Legal Education courses (especially DWI-related courses).
I have spent many years developing my academic and practical skills as a criminal defense attorney. After graduating with high honors from Texas Women’s University, I attended St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas, where I finished near the top of my law school class. I immediately established my own criminal defense law firm, and since that time, have never looked back. Since the beginning, I have been focusing on criminal defense, although I also practice in related areas that my clients require such as administrative license revocations, child protective services, protective order hearings, occupational licenses, and expunctions.
As a sole practitioner, I have accumulated rich experience in many different areas of criminal defense law including felonies and misdemeanors, plea bargains and full-blown criminal trials. Many of my clients have been acquitted, and even those that haven’t been fully exonerated have frequently benefited from my plea bargaining skills to receive alternative penalties such as a pre-trial diversion, deferred adjudication, and probation. On numerous occasions, I have obtained dismissals or acquittals for my clients.
Being a good criminal defense attorney requires more than just knowledge and skills, however. It also requires the right personality traits – a fiercely protective instinct, the courage to confront legal bullies, the social skills necessary to negotiate a fair outcome and, above all, the professionalism to see a case though to the end without missing a single nuance or opportunity.
