Itake great pride in being a member of the College of the State Bar of Texas, and being one of the best trained criminal defense lawyers around.  Although attending continuing education courses takes time and costs money, I am able to learn and network.  In return, you get a better, more confident lawyer who is knowledgeable about the latest law and techniques.  I have listed some of the continuing education courses I have taken below, although not all courses are listed.
