Much of my skill and craft were honed as a criminal prosecutor in the Denton County District Attorney’s office. I have spent countless hours in the courtroom advocating for my clients. While I am always courteous and professional in the courtroom, my clients will not be bullied. I enjoy courtroom advocacy the most, but I emphasize a strategy that lessens resentment and hostility and focuses on creative problem-solving, goal setting for the future, and preserving dignity." -- Brian K.
