Want justice?

I can represent you; I can “handle” your case, but legal strategies are extremely limited in scope and effectiveness.

In general, I do not represent people who want to be in court, who are going to court because they think it is the best way to obtain something they want or feel entitled to get. I typically do not represent people who are going to court to find justice, because (in general) I don’t think courts are the usually the right place to look.

In general, I only represent people who are in court because they HAVE to be there, if they are FORCED to be there, because a law enforcement agency of the the U.S. government or the State of Texas has brought them to court through arrests or issuing warrants (in criminal cases) or “notices to appear” (in immigration cases).

If you want justice, do not wait for lawyers or the courts. We only achieve justice through collective action.

“The whole history of the progress of human liberty shows that all concessions yet made to her august claims, have been born of earnest struggle. If there is no struggle there is no progress. This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to — and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.” —Frederick Douglass, “The Significance of Emancipation in the West Indies” (August 3, 1857)
