“While There Is A Soul In Prison, I Am Not Free.

About My Criminal Defense Law Practice

My years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer have only added to my passion for protecting people’s rights and futures. I  stand by my fellow human beings who find themselves up against the intimidating machinery of the state and Federal criminal justice system in Cameron County, Texas.

As we say in Spanish, “Más sabe el diablo por viejo que por diablo,” which means, “The devil knows more because he is old, than because he is the devil.”
