My practice is dedicated to defending citizens charged with criminal offenses, including misdemeanors and felonies of all types. Although based in Houston, I have represented clients throughout Texas and also in the federal system. I strive to help clients on both a legal basis, and if appropriate, on a personal basis, that is, by providing information and assistance on matters involving drug and alcohol dependency.
