The Team

Charlie roadman

I've been an Austin criminal defense attorney for over 20 years. I opened my own office immediately after receiving my law license and haven't looked back. Since then I've dedicated my career to representing people accused of breaking the law in Travis and surrounding counties. I enjoy every day of this job because helping people is built into my DNA.

My philosophy is to fight every aspect of the charge, while providing guidance to my client on ways to minimize the impact to their life. I try to show my clients that a criminal case is a great opportunity to make some positive changes, and that these changes usually result in much better outcome on their case.

If you are interested in how I became a defense attorney, here is a podcast interview I did about it.
