CRIMINAL DEFENSE

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Accusations of a criminal offense can have life changing consequences if subsequently convicted in the court of law. If you’ve been the subject of a criminal charge that will be heard in a Galveston County courtroom I’m on your side.

As a criminal defense attorney I’ve dealt with defending people accused of a variety of offenses. With my experience as a federal attorney I’m also admitted into federal court and prepared to fight on your behalf if you’ve been indicted by a federal grand jury.
