“If you're not sleeping at night
then I'm not doing my job.”

With more than 15 years experience in Criminal Law and a board certification in the field of criminal justice by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, I will handle your case effectively and help you sleep better at night.

I’M ALWAYS ONE STEP AHEAD IN YOUR DEFENSE

My extensive experience means I can proactively take steps to advocate for you and your best interests. Any lawyer can request an offense report and show up to court. I am going to use my enormous resources to go well beyond that. From investigators to experts, I am going to do everything – and look for everything – to provide the very best defense to the client and get them the best possible outcome.

Brent Mayr in the Media

Facing a criminal charge is difficult enough, but adding public scrutiny into the mix makes handling your case even harder. This is why you need an attorney not only with experience in the courtroom, but in the court of public opinion as well.  My experience with high profile cases has made me extremely comfortable talking to the media and painting my clients in a light most favorable to them.  At the same time, I have also represented a number of individuals who need to keep their criminal matter discrete and out of the public eye.  My experience can benefit you whichever position you find yourself in.

A FEARLESS ADVOCATE FOR JUSTICE

REPRESENTING CLIENTS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE

TACKLING HIGH PROFILE CASES TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS

Business professionals, lawyers, doctors, accountants, artists, reporters, political activists, private investigators, police officers, realtors, and small business owners, I represent individuals from all backgrounds and walks of life.

When Brent represented me, he made it feel like more of a friendship than a job. How he handled my case and spoke to me, it was obvious he cared about me. Brent was absolutely the best lawyer for my case.”

BOARD CERTIFIED MEANS

I’M A SPECIALIST IN CRIMINAL DEFENSE

Only 10% of attorneys in the state of Texas are Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. These are the only attorneys permitted to state that they specialize in a select area of the law.

I’m one of them.

MY PAST PROTECTS YOUR FUTURE

I was a former briefing attorney for a judge on the highest court in the state of Texas for criminal cases, a former felony prosecutor and head of the Vehicular Crimes Section responsible for all DWI and vehicular homicide cases and, as a criminal defense attorney, have secured a number of dismissals and acquittals for my clients.

YOUR LIFE IS AT STAKE.
YOUR DEFENSE IS THE LAST PLACE TO CUT CORNERS.

When your life is on the line, your defense is the most important thing in the world. You need an attorney that will work tirelessly to protect your rights and keep you from losing your family, your job, and your way of life.

You get what you pay for with a criminal defense attorney
and you will get more from me.
