Proven Results from Our Texas Criminal Defense Team


At the end of the day, results matter most. It is obviously unethical for a lawyer to guarantee a result in a specific case, but what we can promise you is that we will do our best to fight for you. We have worked hard for over 20 years to establish a reputation for being among the best criminal defense law firms. We have successfully handled all types of federal and state cases during all phases—from investigation to appeal to post-conviction writs. And we pride ourselves on our client-focused practice. Just read our reviews to see what clients say about us.

Here are some highlights of results of just some of the cases we have handled over the last few years. Obviously, prior results are no guarantee of future performance or the outcome of your specific case. These are for illustrative purposes only of the types of cases we have successfully handled before.

State Cases

State child sex crimes, online solicitation, and child pornography

K-12 Sex Abuse Allegations

Multiple students from various high schools
We have handled several cases where a high school student has made sexual abuse accusations against another student. In 2019 and 2020, following the "Me Too" hysteria, we represented FOUR DIFFERENT high school students in FOUR UNRELATED investigations. In ALL FOUR investigations, the sex charges were DECLINED. The students were able to move on with their lives, graduate from high school, and go to college.

Child Pornography

Multiple child pornography investigations
We have handled several federal and state child pornography investigations. The FBI and/or State authorities executed a search warrant and/or seized digital devices from suspect’s homes. In many of these, charges were DECLINED.

Online Solicitation

Multiple online solicitation cases
We have handled many cases involving online solicitation of a minor. We have had charges declined in investigations and several charged cases dismissed.

Child Sex Abuse Investigation

Multiple child sex abuse investigation
We have handled many child sex abuse investigations. Often, we determine it is in our client’s best interest to be proactive and cooperate with law enforcement to try and prevent charges from being filed. Lots of lawyers advise their clients to just “take the Fifth” and remain silent, but our clients many times cannot afford to do that. Their livelihood, reputation, and future are on the line. Many times, we have cooperated and had charges DECLINED.

Child Sex Abuse

Multiple child sex abuse victories after charges filed
The majority of our practice focuses on child sex abuse charges. We have taught other lawyers in legal seminars about child sex abuse cases and have come to be recognized as one of the leading firms in the United States that defend these types of cases. We have handled many of these cases and had great success in obtaining DISMISSALS, winning AT TRIAL, and reversing cases ON APPEAL.

Multiple suspects in rape allegations
