To my previously dedicated readers, I feel I owe you an explanation of the status of this page. I closed my criminal defense practice in October of 2014. I am no longer handling any criminal defense cases and thus no longer marketing my services as such.
As of November 3, 2014, I have returned to the Williamson County District Attorneys Office as the appellate prosecutor. In that role, I represent the State and citizens of Williamson County on all post-conviction matters (such as direct appeals and writs of habeas corpus). In addition, I provide advice and support to the trial prosecutors on legal issues as they arise in trial. I also provide advice regarding the law applicable to matters handled by the DA’s office in a variety of situations as necessary.
Over time I will try to make changes to this site to reflect the change in my employment. I do not intend to abandon this site however. Instead, I intend to use this space to provide information and analysis on developments in Texas criminal law, especially as it relates to appellate courts handling criminal matters.
Why am I converting my blog in this manner? While handling various appellate matters both as a defense attorney and now as a prosecutor I have sought to accumulate a set of blogs to bookmark and resources to which I might refer regarding Texas criminal appellate matters. While I have found several blogs and resources about criminal law general,and several blogs about civil appellate law, I have found a decided lack of blogs addressing Texas criminal appeals. That is the purpose to which I will put this space.
I don’t know yet at what pace I will update this blog other than as I find developments worth sharing. I hope in time other attorneys practicing criminal law will find the contents here useful.
