On the List of Super Lawyers® Rising Stars

One of my proudest recent achievements is the fact that I was included in the list of Texas Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ from 2009-2015. Super Lawyers® is a publication and rating service that provides an unbiased ranking to assist members of the general public in the task of finding top-level legal representation.

The Super Lawyers® lists are based on an exhaustive process of peer nominations and peer reviews, and no more than 5 percent of attorneys statewide are included. The Rising Stars list is an even more prestigious accomplishment, available only to lawyers who are under the age of 40 or who have been practicing for less than a decade, and it includes no more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in the state.

What a Superb Rating on Avvo Means

In addition to being included in the Rising Stars list, I have also earned the distinction of the 10.0 Superb Avvo Rating. The Avvo ratings are based on a proprietary formula that takes into account factors including an attorney's experience, recognition in the industry, and his or her track record of professional conduct. The result of this computation is a numerical rating, with 10.0 being the highest available score that a lawyer can achieve.

Avvo ratings are unbiased and reflect an attorney's commitment to success and consistently excellent results. I owe my success to the fact that I take a sincere interest in the well-being of every individual who comes to me for help, in addition to my determination to provide the finest and most aggressive legal defense available.

Let the Best Handle Your Case and Your Future

If you have been arrested and charged with a crime, whether it is a misdemeanor, a first time driving while intoxicated (DWI) charge, or a felony such as rape or murder, you owe it to yourself to hire the best criminal defense lawyer you can find. There is simply too much at stake for your future, and you cannot afford to take any chances with the outcome of your case.

Criminal penalties can include steep fines, time in jail or prison, a lengthy period of probation and additional restrictions such as sex offender registration and a loss of the right to own firearms. Furthermore, having a criminal conviction on your record can make life difficult, as you may be unable to find suitable housing or employment.
