"From beginning to end, Brandon always had my best interest at hand."
Accordingly, John Locke said it best in the Two Treatises of Government, “Although we live in a law of nature, some individuals will end up violating our life, liberty, and estate because we make bad judges in our own cases.” Whatever wrong’s that are committed to us, or by us will always be viewed objectively or dispassionately because we will favor ourselves. Thus, it is imperative that we always check the power that we as a society have delegated towards a more powerful sovereign by excising our right to protect and preserve our life, liberty, and estate. Becoming enveloped within the criminal justice system is an overwhelming and cumbersome experience. It is imperative that one acquire an attorney that knows how to delegate as well as listen to their clients needs or concerns. I can not speak for every experience within the Criminal Justice system, I merely offer my personal experience from the time I was arrested and charged with felonious assault on a family member by impeding breathing, up to the resolution of my case at trial. Looking back, I recall moments after I was bonded out and was told I’d need an attorney. I felt as though it was going to be a hectic, and stressful experience given the size of Houston, and the long list of potential criminal defense lawyers at my disposal. At the time, I was not looking for promises or affirmations. I merely wanted a guide as to what was going on, and what was going to happen. I searched cautiously online and came upon Brandon’s site and read his reviews, which ended up aiding my decision to contact him. He did not answer initially; however, he called back promptly and even sent me an email, and text message. I didn’t feel like I was being hounded at all, I felt more welcomed given that he just wanted to talk about what was going on and wanted to know how I was doing due to the fact that I had just gotten out of jail a few hours prior. Other attorneys that I tried to contact ended up getting back to me hours, if not days later. Brandon got back to me within the hour and throughout the entire process, he has never been out of reach, or contact with any questions or concerns that he or I had. At our consultation, I felt welcomed and secure. There were uncertainties of course; however, all my questions and concerns were more than adequately answered in a manner that made sense. After I stated all the facts which were known to me at the time Brandon iterated that my case was more than likely going to end up at trial because the prosecutor may not want to offer an acceptable plea in my matter. He was right! After months and months of court appearances and trying to get a suitable plea from the prosecutor we decided that the case would have to proceed to a jury trial. The prosecutor in my case had no physical evidence, but merely had the testimony of two HPD officers, which she felt was more than good enough to acquire a conviction against me. As I stated to Brandon from the first time I met him, I did not recall the events well because I was intoxicated at the time of my arrest. Despite that, he maintained my innocence and fought vigorously throughout the entire process. At trial the state presented their case well and though it was a battle throughout; Brandon, with such composure, elegance, and knowledge, substantiated my innocence in a manner that was coherent and eloquent to the jury. He contested each and every accusation that he could. Both the state and the cops reassured the jury that because of the nature of law in our society, a cop's testimony should be good enough given any circumstance. However, Brandon quickly reassured the court and me that when an individual's life, and liberty are at stake, the sole testimony of an individual, without evidence regardless of rank within society is never “good enough.” Conclusively, I was found not guilty and I thank Brandon and his wife for doing the due diligence the state did not do with my case. All my best, thank you, Brandon!
