Case Results

Case Results

The table below shows my case results in reverse chronological order. The top rows are results from today, July 29, 2016, and the bottom goes back to May 1, 2010. This represents the time period when I stopped accepting court-appointed felony cases and decided to focus on assault cases.  (I had stopped taking court-appointed misdemeanors earlier in my career.)  I have taken a few non-assault cases since then but only in very rare circumstances, like a very special client or as a favor to another attorney whom I trust.

The chart below is a complete list, not merely the highlights, because I have nothing to hide.  It is not a very long list because I intentionally keep my caseload small to give each case the attention it deserves. As you can see, almost all of my cases are dismissed, so my results speak for themselves.  Texas State Bar rules say that I can’t guarantee a dismissal but I can guarantee that I will work hard to ensure the best possible outcome in every case.

The only conviction on this list is Probation for the class B misdemeanor offense called “Obstructing A Highway.” That was a plea negotiated down from a felony DWI 3.  I also have two Deferred Adjudication results which, although they are technically not convictions, they are also not great. Everything else has either been dismissed outright or by a negotiated dismissal agreement.

My results are outstanding but there is nothing magical about it.  My technique is to simply (1) charge a high enough fee so I can afford to do an independent investigation of the facts in every case, (2) don’t represent A-holes, and (3) give a damn about my clients.

There are lots of consumers in the market for bare-bones legal representation and plenty of attorneys competing to be the lowest price provider of legal services. That practice model is fine for representing common criminals but it is simply not appropriate for professionals, college students and anyone who’s livelihood depends, at least in part, on having a clean criminal record.

My niche is giving my clients the best possible chance of surviving their brush Travis County criminal justice system with a clear record. I may not be cheap but, as the chart above shows, I am extremely effective.
