We know you have a lot of options when it comes to choosing a Dallas criminal defense attorney. Finding the best criminal defense attorney in Dallas for your case is a very personal decision. We have over five decades and 550 jury trials worth of experience. That is extraordinary by any measure. There, is however, far more to our firm than the numbers. We believe in treating every individual who comes to us not as a number, but as someone who is coming to us with the biggest problem in their life. The outstanding reviews that our firm has earned comes from that individualized focus and the passion with which we defend cases. Three of our attorneys are Board Certified in Criminal Law, which is the highest designation a criminal defense attorney can reach. When you hire our firm, you don’t get just one attorney: You get a whole team of criminal defense attorneys who brainstorm about issues in your case and prepare your defense.
