What Is Your Background In Practicing Criminal Law?

My background in criminal defense law started when I was hired as a prosecutor with the Harris County District Attorney’s office in 2009. I started as a misdemeanor prosecutor handling low level cases such as DWI, assault on a family member, criminal trespass, and possession of marijuana. After two years of working as a misdemeanor prosecutor, I was promoted to the felony division where I began handling more serious felony cases like burglaries and possession of higher amounts of drugs (cocaine, ecstasy, methamphetamine etc.). After some time there, I returned to the misdemeanor division as a misdemeanor chief and trained new misdemeanor prosecutors.

After that, I went back to working as a felony prosecutor, this time handling even more serious felony cases such as murder, sexual assault, and aggravated robbery. While working at the district attorney’s office, I also served in two specialty divisions: Vehicular Crimes and the Family Criminal Law Division.

In Vehicular Crimes, I handled intoxication manslaughter cases and automobile accident cases where people died. As a prosecutor in the Family Criminal Law Division, I handled both felony and misdemeanor domestic violence cases. While there, I also trained misdemeanor prosecutors on how to try domestic violence cases.

After being with the district attorney’s office for almost seven years, I decided it was time for a change so I opened up my own criminal defense practice. I can handle all manner of cases, but I am trying to focus my practice on domestic violence cases. I have a great deal of experience handling those type of cases, they interest me, and I tend to get particularly good results in those types of cases.

I’m fortunate to good working relationships with many of the prosecutors at the DA’s Office and that translates into better results for my clients.
