San Antonio, TX
When I was younger, I was arrested for DWI. I still remember the feeling that came along with the arrest. I was embarrassed, I was confused, and I didn’t know who to turn to for help. I ended up hiring a lawyer who did a good job of the legal part, but didn’t help with the way I felt. I went to my first court date not knowing what to expect. I was lucky enough to have my case dismissed, but even after that, I didn’t know that I was eligible to have the arrest taken off of my record. Every time that I went for a job interview or applied for school, I had to go through the same feelings all over. I had to explain what happened and why I was arrested. Every time it was embarrassing and I never knew how that arrest was going to impact my life in the future.
After graduating law school, I have been helping people that are in the same position that I was. Every day, I remember that there are good people being accused of crimes. They are having to go through the same system that I had to go through and they are feeling the same things that I felt. I have made it my mission to help these people out. Not only to get the best outcome that I can for them, but to walk beside them as they go through the process. I make sure to take time to learn about their lives, to let them know what to expect, and to reach out periodically to see if they have any questions and to find out how their doing.
Thankfully, I was able to get past that arrest years ago. I now have a wife and children whom I love, I run when I get a chance, and I get to help other people get past their arrests, like I got past mine. I have been voted one of the best criminal defense attorneys in town and I can’t imagine doing anything else.
