we handle
00:06
uh family law uh we also handle criminal
00:09
defense and juvenile defense
00:12
as well as personal injury i would say
00:14
our biggest area being family
00:17
and a lot of the criminal cases that we
00:18
handle are directly related
00:21
to family cases and what i mean by that
00:23
is what we call like a dual
00:25
representation so we may represent a
00:27
spouse in their divorce as well as
00:31
uh if they’ve been accused of domestic
00:33
violence and there’s a criminal case
00:34
pending we’ll also represent them that
00:36
in that as well
00:37
and one of our attorneys here jesse has
00:40
a lot of experience in the personal
00:42
injury field

00:53
when hiring an attorney i think there’s
00:55
several things you need to look for
00:57
one is
00:59
experience in the particular area of law
01:02
that you need assistance with i think
01:04
that’s extremely important
01:06
i also think and i read an article a
01:09
long time ago where it talks about the
01:11
el paso tests and if you’re from texas
01:13
or you’ve been in texas you know that
01:15
it’s a long drive from austin to el paso
01:18
and so one of the things they talk about
01:19
is it’s got to be somebody you can be
01:21
comfortable with
01:23
um in the drive from el paso to austin
01:27
because you’re going to be with this
01:28
person a lot you’re going to have a lot
01:30
of discussions with this person
01:32
so it’s not only somebody that’s smart
01:34
and articulate and knows the law or a
01:35
specific area but having that connection
01:39
and feeling like you can talk to that
01:41
attorney
01:42
about your personal
01:45
issues in your life i think is also
01:47
extremely important
