Juvenile Defense Attorney
Has your child gotten into trouble with the law? Arrested? Detained? Living through a child’s arrest or juvenile charge is one of the most overwhelming and frightening challenges you can face as a parent. Despite wanting what’s best for your child, you may not know how to most effectively protect them when it comes to the juvenile justice system. In times like these, you’ll need an experienced juvenile law attorney on your side – someone who will not only protect your child’s rights, but also help them return to their normal lives again.
I have dedicated my life to protecting the rights of others; I have a deep understanding of the Texas legal system and the risks that your child faces during a juvenile prosecution.
Over the course of a decade, I have handled thousands of criminal cases and tried more than 100 cases to a judge or jury. I have worked as a defense attorney and as a felony, misdemeanor, and juvenile prosecutor. As a prosecutor, I handled a wide range of felony and misdemeanor cases ranging from charges like drug possession, drunk driving, and domestic violence to violent crimes like homicide, sexual assault, and aggravated robbery.
I have also handled hundreds of juvenile cases, serving over two years as the juvenile sex crimes prosecutor for Travis County. I have substantial experience in juvenile courts and have handled serious juvenile cases including murder, aggravated robbery, burglary, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault of a child, and indecency with a child.
Armed with an understanding and awareness of how the other side thinks and operates, I employ strategic, creative, and aggressive defense strategies to seek an excellent outcome in your child’s case. I will do everything in my power to create the strongest argument to fight for your child’s freedom. I am committed to providing every one of my clients with an exceptional defense.
I routinely handle juvenile cases throughout Central Texas, including Travis County, Williamson County, Hays County, Gillespie County, and elsewhere. In the Travis County juvenile justice system, private attorneys must apply for and receive judicial approval to be assigned certain juvenile cases. I have been approved at the highest level, Level 3, eligible to handle the most difficult and complex cases in juvenile court.
These cases include Determinate Sentence cases like Capital Murder, Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Robbery, and other violent crimes. These cases can also result in transfer (or certification) of the child to adult court to stand trial as an adult.
Your child deserves the most effective defense possible, and when your child’s future is on the line, I want to be there to help.
