To Vape Or Not To Vape

As several states have legalized marijuana, Texas has stuck to its cowboy roots and resisted change.  However, the Lone Star state has acquiesced to some of the public and business pressure to legalize or at least decriminalize marijuana and other products containing THC.  This last legislative session, the Texas Congress legalized hemp and hemp-based products to appease Texas hemp farmers.   However, little has changed regarding the consequences of being caught with a vape pen containing THC.  It may come as a surprise to some that possession of a vape or e-cigarette pen with THC is automatically classified as a felony.  Most people know that possession...

Felony Cases Dismissed

This affable, hard-working young man was facing ten years in prison. However, we felt emphatically he didn’t deserve to be imprisoned or a convicted felon. He comes from a great and supportive family. He has a good heart and soul. We were determined to prevent him from carrying the burden of his charges for the rest of his life. Fortunately, God gave us favor and a fair prosecutor. RESULTS: CASES DISMISSED! ...

Felony Case Dismissed

Criminal Defense Lawyers Making A Real Difference If we criminal defense lawyers only show up to make money from our client's misery, we're similar to buzzards. At least, that's what many in the public think of us. The comparison to buzzards is unfair, but let's use it to motivate us to do more. I have a few ideas for the motivated. All races of people get involved in criminality.

And for all these reasons, African American and Hispanic...

I cannot provide details now because this matter is in the court system. But what I will say is we aren’t deterred or defeated. We’re committed Christ followers, activists and we will fight back vigorously. The experience was just what my family needed to double down against injustice. ...

What Clients Want From Their Lawyers

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] We heard you. Recently, we conducted a survey that asked people what they wanted if they were injured in a truck accident. We got great feedback. We’ll use this feedback to get better and better as a law firm. According to our survey, there are four main things you want from your lawyer. Let’s review what you told us: 1.    SPEEDY YET GREAT FINANCIAL COMPENSATION First, a majority said you want great financial compensation for your injuries, and you want it fast. We understand this desire since the accident caused you lots of pain, medical bills, credit damage, lost wages, mental anguish, and often...

The Benefits To Our Clients That We’re Skilled, Smart Trial Lawyers

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] The Benefits To Our Clients That We’re Skilled, Smart Trial Lawyers Better Offers and Better Verdicts Growing up I watched television shows and movies such as To Kill A Mocking Bird, Perry Mason, and Matlock. These lawyers had very different personalities, but there’s something they shared: they were skilled, smart trial lawyers. Hollywood embellished the trial process, but lawyers during that era were trial lawyers first. Lawyers were expected to know how to try cases well for their clients. The legal profession has changed dramatically. Many lawyers never see the inside of a courtroom. They can practice law from their offices and...

Safety Facts About 18-Wheeler Truck Wrecks

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] Sharing The Road Safely With Large Trucks 4,761 Americans died in crashes involving large trucks in 2017.[1]Most of these fatalities were avoidable and needless deaths. Negligent or reckless drivers caused most of them.  Every year the National Highway Transportation Safety Authority (NHTSA) publishes a report about specific facts regarding 18-wheeler accidents. The report enhances safety. Our firm reviews and uses the report to make safety suggestions. We’d rather not see another person experience such injuries or death although we assist injured persons or their families in seeking justice when accidents occur. The devastation from an 18-wheeler accident can be horrific. Knowledge is...
