Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ASocial Media

As an experienced criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor, I know how the criminal justice system works and what it takes to get good results.

My goal in every case is to obtain not only a great result but also the best possible outcome for my client under the facts and circumstances of the case. Consequently, my clients have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they can trust their lawyer to protect their legal rights and handle their cases in a way that ensures the best outcome for them.

I have deep roots in Austin and practice exclusively in Travis County. Every one of my clients is important to me so rather than delegate my cases to an assistant or junior associate, I keep my caseload small so that I can provide personal attention to each client and put a lot of work into every case, whether it's a felony or misdemeanor, state or federal charge.

Q. Would they have informed me if I violated the deferred prosecution terms when I sent in all of my paperwork?
A: You can ask for confirmation of completion but they are often reluctant to do anything other than acknowledging receipt of your documentation. That said, although failing to get the assessment within the first 60 days is technically a violation, I have never seen them re-file on someone who completed all the classes by the deadline. Obviously, they could change the policy tomorrow but I doubt they would because it would just create additional work for them and there is going to be a big surge or work when the courts reopen after this COVID-19 shutdown.
Q. Where can I find the laws regarding emancipation of a dog.
A: The question text says "emancipation" but it seems like you are asking about "euthanization." If you are considering killing your pet please consult the law for CRUELTY TO NONLIVESTOCK ANIMALS which you can read at this URL: see
Q. should i use a DV attorney from Genesis Shelter or the Family Place?
A: Child custody is such an important matter that you should talk to multiple Family Law attorneys and hire the one you trust the most.
