Serving Collin County and the Dallas-Fort Worth area, we are dedicated to helping every client obtain the best possible outcome. If you are facing an arrest, a divorce or another challenging legal issue, we can provide the honest answers and effective solutions that you deserve.

Experienced Criminal Defense in Plano

We represent people charged with DWI, drug crimes, sex offenses, violent crimes, white collar crimes and other offenses. With our extensive experience in federal and state criminal courts, we have the advocacy skills needed for the toughest cases.

Our experienced criminal defense attorneys know that every case is different and the right approach will depend on several factors. When we take on a criminal defense matter, we examine every aspect, such as the admissibility of the evidence and whether we believe we can have the case dismissed on constitutional grounds. Sometimes the best option is to go to trial.

Whether you are facing a misdemeanor or felony charge, we will work tenaciously to protect your rights and preserve your freedom.

We understand how to pursue resolutions that protect the interests of our clients and their families.
