About Us


One of the great strengths of our law office is our focus on frequent communications with clients. We send update emails for every court setting and milestone. Our clients know where they stand at every point in the process. We promptly return all phone calls, texts and e-mails.


Criminal cases in particular come with a lot of anxiety and embarrassment. We try to guide our clients through the process with attention to both the legal issues and the emotional stresses that result from an arrest. As hard as it is to imagine when the memory of the arrest is fresh, it is often possible to turn these adverse situations into something positive.

Charlie Roadman

While attending the University of Texas School of Law, I participated in the Criminal Defense Clinic where I was trained by some of the best lawyers in Texas. I quickly realized that criminal defense was the only type of law I wanted to practice. After graduation, I immediately opened my office and have been practicing criminal defense law exclusively ever since. I’ve handled over a thousand cases in my 13 years of practice – from first-degree felonies to Class C tickets. This experience is valuable because I’ve seen all the ways that cases can be dismissed. I leverage this experience for all of my clients, seeking to find the best resolution possible.
